Physical Education

Men's basketball stands tall
The men's basketball team made it to the NCAA Division III championship sectionals, ending its run with a 63-49 loss on March 10 to the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. The Maroons earned a bye in the first round of playoff action and advanced to the national round of 16 after a 75-68 win over Ripon College. The team clinched its third UAA title in four years, finishing 23-4 overall and 15-0 in the UAA. Named the 2000 UAA player of the year, first-year Derek M. Reich broke Chicago's scoring record.

Women's b-ball shoots for All-UAA
Four women's basketball team members, fourth-years Kate Hemker and Amy Gleisner, third-year Dana Allison, and first-year Rachel Thompson, were chosen to the 2000 All-UAA team. Chicago wrapped up the season with a loss to Washington University on February 26, posting an overall record of 14-11 and a 9-6 mark in UAA play.

Maroons stroke to UAA honors
Chicago third-year Karen Chuang and second-year Jeremy Lankford earned All-UAA recognition at the 2000 UAA swimming championships, held at Emory University in February. Chuang, a second-time All-UAA honoree, placed third in the 200-yard butterfly with a time of 2:15.96, and Lankford placed second in the 100-yard backstroke with a time of :52.51.

Wrestlers take down opponents
Three Chicago wrestlers won UAA titles at the 2000 UAA wrestling championship, hosted by Johns Hopkins University. Third-years Anthony Calcagno, Steve Mlynarczyk, and J. R. Moore captured conference titles at heavyweight, 133 pounds, and 141 pounds, respectively. As a team, Chicago placed third of fourth, behind New York University and Case Western Reserve University.

Tennis coach to serve last round
Bill Simms, head coach of the men's and women's tennis teams since 1979, will retire at the end of the 2000 season. He began his Chicago career in 1967 as a gymnastics coach.
