Tracking success
After a strong indoor season, Chicago's outdoor track & field teams excelled at the 2001 University Athletic Association (UAA) championships. First-year Tom Haxton was named Men's Rookie of the Year, winning the 5,000-meter run (15:22.73) and the 10,000-meter run (33:35.50), and helping Chicago men to a second-place team finish. Third-year Keith Mastronardi won first place in the triple jump with a 13.79-meter leap. The women took fifth place as second-year Diane Valos was third in the pole vault (2.77m), and Valerie Anderson placed third in both shot put (10.95m) and hammer throw (41.06m).

Tennis wrap-up
The women's tennis team came in fourth at the 2001 UAA championships, defeating New York University 7-2 in opening-round play before losing to champion Emory University 5-0 in the semifinals and to Rochester (9-0) in the third-place match. The men took eighth place, losing all three rounds of play.

Play Ball!
The Maroons softball team finished its 2001 regular season by winning a record 26th game at a May 1 doubleheader at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. On other diamonds, the baseball team won a doubleheader against Aurora University on May 2, improving its season record to 21-8.
