Pinning the UAA title
The 23rd-ranked wrestling team captured the 2001 University Athletic Association championship this February. The title was Chicago's seventh in 14 years. Meanwhile, second-year Bill Kopecky took first place in the 197-pound competition at the NCAA Division III Great Lakes regional championship, earning the chance to participate in the NCAA Division III championship.

Strong strokes
Men's and women's swimming teams placed ninth at the UAA championships. Third-year Jeremy Lankford recorded an NCAA Division III provisional qualifying time at the 2001 University Athletic Association championships. Lankford finished fourth in the 100-yard backstroke in the finals and in the preliminary swam a time of 0:52.94. He qualified for nationals in the same event a year ago. First-year Northe Saunders set a school record in the 200-yard freestyle with a time of 1:44.12, breaking a mark set in 1988.

The University of Chicago men's and women's indoor track & field teams captured third and fifth place, respectively, at the 2001 University Athletic Association championships. In the men's competition, seven Maroons earned All-UAA honors.
