May 23, 2012

ATHENS -- The University of Georgia has claimed second place in the annual Southeastern Conference all-sports competition sponsored by the Halifax Media Group.

Georgia's second place overall standing was achieved by finishing second in both the men's and women's annual all-sports conference competition. Consistently high finishes in most men's and women's sports boosted the Bulldogs into the second place overall standing. In the last 12 years, Georgia has posted one first place finish, eight second place finishes, two thirds, and one fifth in the all-sports competition.

Highlighting the 2011-12 Georgia year were an SEC Eastern Division championship in football; SEC title in women's swimming and diving; second place finish in men's tennis; third place finishes in women's basketball, women's tennis, men's swimming and diving, gymnastics, men's cross country, and men's indoor and outdoor track and field; fourth place finishes in softball, men's golf, women's outdoor track and field, and women's cross country; and fifth place finishes in soccer, women's golf, and women's indoor track and field.

The Halifax Media Group, which includes 14 newspapers throughout the Southeastern United States, awards the overall, men's and women's SEC All-Sports trophies. A first-place SEC finish is worth 12 points, second is given 11 points, and so on. The sports of cross country, indoor and outdoor track & field are combined. A program's outdoor track finish makes up half, while the remaining two quarters are based on the cross country and indoor finishes. A school's point total is divided by the number of sports it fields to arrive at the average.

This is the first year for the Halifax Media Group to award the SEC All-Sports Trophy. The New York Times Regional Newspaper Group gave the awards from the 1994-95 through the 2010-11 seasons. Prior to that, the league tabulated the SEC All-Sports totals
