March 6, 2012

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - The Southeastern Conference on Tuesday released its All-SEC teams for indoor track & field. Those honors are based on results at the 2012 indoor league championships, which took place Feb. 24-26 in Lexington, Ky.

The winner in each event, including relays, earns first-team All-SEC recognition. The second-place finisher in each event, including relays, earns second-team All-SEC recognition. The top freshman finisher in each event, excluding relays, earns SEC All-Freshman Team recognition.

Tennessee athletes tallied five first-team All-SEC nods, two second-team selections and three SEC All-Freshman acknowledgements.

First-team honorees for their women's event victories included senior Annie Alexander (shot put, 55-11 3/4) as well as freshman Julia Petree, senior Chanelle Price, senior Brittany Sheffey and junior Nijgia Snapp in the distance medley relay (meet record 11:12.23). Alexander won her second SEC Indoor crown in the shot, while the Lady Vols won the DMR for the sixth-straight season and for the eighth-time in nine seasons.

Runner-up Lady Vols included Price in the 800 meters (2:06.45) and senior Ellen Wortham in the long jump (20-5). A trio of Vols earned SEC All-Freshman status, including Stephen Derlath (5000m, 12th, 15:01.27), Matthew Hoty (shot put, 3rd, 62-3 1/4) and Jamol James (60m, 5th, 6.72).
