NOTE: From 1980-81 and 1984-1989, the SEC Champion was determined by the accumulation of points in an individual flighted tournament. In 1982 and 1983, the SEC experimented with the team dual match format in women’s tennis for the conference tournament. The winner of the tournament was crowned SEC champion.Ã¢â‚¬Ë†However, after a two-year trial, the SEC went back to a points system in an individual flighted tournament to determine the SEC champion. In 1990, the SEC brought back the a team dual match format in women’s tennis for the conference tournament and a points system was put in place to determine the SEC champion. From 1990-98, the SECÃ¢â‚¬Ë†Champion was determined by a total aggregate points accumulated at the conclusion of the conference tournament: one full point is awarded for each regular-season conference win, one-half point for wins in the first two rounds of the conference tournament, one-half point for receiving a first-round bye in the conference tournament and one full point for a win in the conference tournament semifinals and finals. For the 1999 season, the same points system was in place with a couple of changes: one full point for first-round bye in the conference tournament and one full point for a win in any round of the conference tournament. In 2000, the SEC changed the determination of its tennis champions to the team with the best winning percentage in conference regular-season dual matches.
