Lee Athletic Finish 2nd In GSC All-Sports Standings

Wednesday, May 15, 2019

The Lee University Athletic Department finished second in the Gulf South Conference All-Sports Trophy Standings for the 2018-19 season the league office announced on Wednesday afternoon.

 

The Lady Flames finished second to West Florida in the women’s standings while the Flames placed fourth in the men’s standings.

 

Lee was bolstered by a league-high six GSC Championships in men’s and women’s cross country, women’s basketball, women’s golf and men’s and women’s track and field.

The cross country and track and field sweep by Lee marked the first time in GSC history that one school had claimed all four titles in the same year.

 

“I am so proud of the effort by our coaches and student athletes this year. To finish in the top two for the second consecutive year is quite a testament to their dedication and hard work. Our goal from the start of our NCAA journey was to be one of the top schools in the GSC and South Region. Finishing third overall the first two years and second the last two in one of the toughest conferences in the country tells me we are heading in the right direction,” said Lee Athletic Director Larry Carpenter.

 

Women’s soccer, men’s soccer and men’s tennis advanced to the GSC semifinals while volleyball finished second in the regular season and men’s golf finished tied for fourth. Women’s tennis finished a program best fourth in the regular season while men’s basketball qualified for the GSC Tournament for the second straight year as the No. 7 seed.

 

West Florida captured its sixth consecutive Overall All-Sports Trophy and reclaimed the Women’s Trophy after the Lady Flames snapped their streak of 12 straight victories a year ago, while VSU won its first Men’s Trophy since 2012-13.

 

The Argonauts won their 13th Women’s crown in 14 years and 16th overall dating back to 1997-98.  West Florida continued its domination in the Overall standings earning its sixth award since its creation in 2013-14.  VSU won its eighth overall Men’s Trophy behind its first outright crown 2009-10. West Florida finished first in the Overall standings, compiling 91.750 total points followed by Lee which collected 83.375 points. 

 

The Conference will present the All-Sports Trophies at its Annual Awards Banquet, Thursday, May 30, at the Hilton Pensacola Beach in Pensacola Beach, Fla.  At that time, the GSC will also recognize its "Top Ten" student-athletes, announce the winners of the Commissioner's Trophies

 

“I want to congratulate Valdosta State’s men on a very successful year and my hat’s off to West Florida for a phenomenal year by all their sports. We know we have to continue to work hard to compete with these outstanding schools but I feel we have the people in place to do so,” added Carpenter. “Lastly, I want to thank Dr. Conn and our administration for their support. Without it, this would not be possible.”
