Top-ranked Gators lead SEC Championship at conclusion of Day 3

ATHENS, Ga. -- Florida leads the 2014 Southeastern Conference Swimming and Diving Championships following the third day of competition, which took place in front of 1,232 fans on Thursday at the Gabrielsen Natatorium on the campus of Georgia.
