    By Gvl Sun gatorsports
    Florida’s Anthony Nesty was named SEC Male Swimming Coach of the Year on Wednesday, highlighting the Gators’ SEC awards.

    Robert Finke and Kieran Smith both earned the SEC Freshman Swimmer of the Year for their performances at the SEC Championships. Finke was the SEC Champion in the 400 IM and 1,650 Free. Smith was the champion in the 200 IM, was a member of the 800 Free Relay that won the SEC title, and finished second in the 400 IM.

    Nesty won an SEC Championship and continued the Florida winning streak to seven straight. During his first season as head coach he tallied four individual SEC Champions and one relay. The Gators also had five swimmers make First-Team All-SEC, six swimmers earned Second-Team All-SEC, and had five freshman claim All-Freshman team honors.
    Finke collected First-Team All-SEC honors in the 400 IM and 1,650 Free. Smith picked up a First-Team All-SEC nod in the 200 IM and Maxime Rooney added a first-team accolade in the 100 Fly. The squad of Rooney, Smith, Trey Freeman, and Khader Baqlah claimed first-team honors with their combined effort in the 800 Free Relay. First team consists of the top finisher in each event at the SEC Championships.
