The Gators set a new Southeastern Conference record with eight league titles to lead Florida to a sweep of the 2012-13 Halifax Media Group’s SEC All-Sports titles. This is the 13th time the Gators have taken the men’s, women’s and overall SEC All-Sports titles. Florida remains the only program that has won all three in a single season.

"The competition in the Southeastern Conference is so strong. Quite often the same teams competing for league titles are also in the hunt for national hardware," Florida Athletics Director Jeremy Foley said. "We take much pride in the SEC All-Sports title because of the hard work of our coaches and student-athletes that went into winning it."

This is the 23rd time the Gators have won the overall title, earning its 20th women’s and 17th men’s title.

Florida earned the awards with SEC titles in men’s basketball, women’s cross country, gymnastics, soccer, softball, men’s swimming and diving, women’s tennis and volleyball. The eight conference titles ties the single season record for one program, previously set twice by Florida in 1991-92 and 2010-11. Georgia is the only other program to win eight league titles, doing so in 2005-06.

The Gators have won 52 league titles since the 2003-04 academic year, the most by any SEC school during the 10-year span. Florida also has 213 SEC titles in its history, the most in the league. The Gators also has six SEC Athlete of the Year honors in 2012-13.
