SEC SWEEP! Florida Wins Men’s and Women’s SEC Swimming and Diving Championships

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – SEC Champions. X2.

For the ninth time in program history, and the first time since 1992-93, the Florida men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams won SEC Championships during the same season.

The No. 5 Florida men grabbed their 11th consecutive SEC Championship Saturday night, scoring 1488.5 points. This title marks the 44th SEC Championship in program history, the second-most by any SEC team across all sports. The Gators are only the third team in the history of the SEC Championships to reach 11 consecutive titles (Florida – 13 from 1955-1968; Auburn – 16 from 1996-2012).

For the first time since 2009, the No. 6 Florida women are SEC Champions. The Gators racked up 1255 points en route to the 18th conference title in school history.


These titles give Florida its 257th and 258th SEC Championships, a league high. Florida has won at least one SEC team title for 45 consecutive season – the league’s longest current streak.

For head coach Anthony Nesty, Saturday marked his fifth-straight men’s title, and his first women’s title at the helm of Florida swimming. Nesty, who is in his second season as both the men’s and women’s head coach, is the second coach in UF history to win a men’s title and women’s title in the same season, joining Randy Reese, who did it five times (1981, 1983, 1984, 1985, and 1990).


Florida is the first SEC school to win both the men’s and women’s title in the same season in 15 years (Auburn, 2008).
