No. 12 Tennessee almost matched its season-high ranking as the Vols
finished the NCAA Indoor Championship in 13th place with 14 points. The
13th-place finish was Tennessee's best since the 1997 NCAA Indoors, which

and one additional All-American selection from last year.

Stanford. Six of the top 13 teams were from the SEC.
Leonard Scott earned All-American honors twice at the meet for the 60M dash
and the 200M dash. Tennessee's fifth-place distance medley relay team

Smith earned All-American in the 800M run.

fifth-place, 6.68 finish in the 60M dash. South Carolina's Terrence
Trammell won the event in 6.54. Scott finished as UT's high scorer with
