The men's and women's teams walked away with wins
This year's 19 regional qualifiers are the most since 2010, when Southern sent 27 in the first year of the current format.
For SIU, 19 is the most MVC Scholar-Athletes since 2011 (19).
Southern sealed the deal on Sunday with extraordinary performances in the men's pole vault and discus.
SIU scored 48 total points from the men's and women's shot put alone.
