Spring sports just keep on trucking for Tennessee.  The Vols just won an exciting Super Regional series that went to the third game and is now preparing to show up in Omaha later this week to compete with seven other teams for the national title.  Tony Vitello has Tennessee Baseball hitting on all the gears, winning the SEC regular season championship (co-champs with Kentucky but Vols did win the series against the Cats), then winning the SEC Tourney title, the NCAA Regional title and then the just completed Super Regional title.  But, the Tennessee Baseball team wasn’t the only team that had a successful weekend.  

The Tennessee Track & Field team showed up strong in the NCAA Outdoor Championships. The Vols totaled ten All-American performances during the championships held in Eugene Oregon.  The Vol All-American performances included:

That’s a lot of All-American hardware the Tennessee Track & Field team brought back from the NCAA Outdoor Championships.  Let’s hope the Tennessee Baseball team can bring back the big iron & natty from Omaha to close out an outstanding spring sports season and the 2023-24 sports year.
