The University of Tennessee track & field program has a rich tradition of success that extends from the Southeastern Conference to the international stage of the Olympic Games. The Vols and Lady Vols have combined to capture seven national championships in track & field and another in cross country. In the highly-competitive SEC, Tennessee's squads have combined to claim 51 SEC team trophies on the oval and another 30 in cross country. At the Olympic Games, 35 UT athletes and five staff members have earned the right to represent their countries, sometimes on multiple occasions. All of these numbers add up to a world-class track & field program.
