It was the highest finish by UK in the All-Sports Trophy race, bettering the previous high of fourth place set a year earlier in 1988.
The men's programs did not fare as well in the SEC All-Sports Trophy after finishing a record-high fourth in 1988. The UK men's programs compiled 31 points to place seventh in this year's race. Cross country again was a Kentucky strong point as the Wildcats captured the Southeastern Conference title. In tennis. All-Americans Rich Benson, Mario Rincon and Adam Malik paced the men's tennis team to a second-place finish in league play.
