Any doubt that the University of Florida had the dominant athletics program in the Southeastern Conference during the 2009-10 school year was put to rest Monday as the university was named the SEC All-Sports champion by the New York Times Regional Media Group. Sweeping all three titles – overall, men’s and women’s – the Florida Gators won by staggering numbers in two of the three categories, literally dominating the competition.

Florida is the only school to sweep all three titles in a single season, accomplishing the feat for the 10th time this year and third in the last four (2006-07, 2008-09). All 16 of UF’s sports (nine women’s, seven men’s) were counted with cross country, indoor and outdoor track & field combined into one unit per gender.

The Gators won seven SEC titles over this period: baseball, gymnastics, soccer, men’s outdoor track & field, women’s tennis, women’s cross country and women’s track & field. It is the fourth time Florida has won seven or more conference titles in a single season.

UF’s has been victorious in 20 of the last 23 All-Sports awards with the men’s program winning its 14th and women’s program winning its 17th respective individual title.

The Gators lead the SEC with 193 all-time team titles including 47 in the last decade.

    Great to have the best AD in the nation! Pretty impressive stats for both the men and women.

    I don’t agree that it is the AD that played the part . He hired the coaches and that s it . The kids are the ones responsible for performing. Let’s give credit where it’s do.. Go Gators

    Two words…Jeremy Foley! Don’t kid yourself, he is the common denominator here. Plus we have been fortunate to have great Presidents at UF recently (example: Lombardi, Matchen) that understand the visibilty and good will that successful sports programs bring to a university and embrace them instead of being adverse to them.

    The women’s sailing team (club) is trying to qualify for Nationals in Madison, WI. The day doesn’t look good though. A storm is coming in…
