Both men's and women's
I'm not sure I can keep it all straight but let me try...
Just this past weekend we won...
SEC Title in Baseball
SEC Tournament title in Softball
SEC Title in Men's track
SEC Title in Women's track
So 3 SEC crowns plus a tourney crown- all over 3 days.
How many SEC schools will not win 3 titles over a full school year?
It is GREAT to be a Florida Gator!!
According to a post on the pay side--Florida won 7 (6 SEC and 1 Big East) and Arkansas 4. Everyone else was 2 or less. I have not verified those numbers but they sound correct.
As usual, we have an opportunity to finish very strongly in the National All Sports Championship. When football gets back on track we will regularly be in the mix for the overall.
That Arky number surprises me. 3 of them must be CC and track.
First- nothing wrong with cross-country and track titles. We just won 2 of them and I'm pretty excited about both right now.
But you are correct...
2017- SEC Men's cross-country: Arkansas
2017 SEC women's cross-country- Arkansas
2018 SEC women's indoor track- Arkansas
2018 SEC men's indoor track- Alabama
So this makes it doubly sweet that we SWEPT the outdoor titles.
Dang the gumps won a track title. Forrest must've got some more egibilitie.
That's basically all they're really good at. Baseball not bad this year. Not sure how their sows got good at golf though.
Florida Wins Fourth Straight #BIGEASTwlax Championship
It was won by stacking a couple of the all interested parties can run races! In the conference meet you can pretty much enter as many people in an event as you want. Some teams do in order to score extra points.
That has hampered the Gators in years past as Mouse typically follows the NCAA rules--only a certain # of participants in each event. This outdoor season we just won both staying within NCAA guidelines. The NCAA's are going to be fun this year!
So, I guess it's the mountainous terrain around Fayetteville that helps the Arkansans with Cross Country and Track. You'd think that the nearby mountains would also aid the Vols Cross Country, track and other teams to train as well. There is a simply massive difference in running on Mountains relative to running on Flatlands (like in Florida) regarding wind development. Of course Track is largely Sprints rather than Distance, while Cross Country is strictly middle to long distance training.
