Bears dominate UAA

Of the University’s six NCAA Division III teams that compete in the fall, five have captured University Athletic Association crowns this season.

The titles started to parade down Olympian Way on Nov. 1, when both the men’s and women’s cross country teams ran to UAA titles at the conference meet at the University of Chicago.

Three more teams followed suit Nov. 8. First, the football Bears edged Carnegie Mellon University, 37-35, in Pittsburgh to secure their third consecutive outright league title.

Then the women’s soccer team not only won the league but also earned an NCAA Tournament berth by posting a 2-1 upset win in double overtime on the road over top-ranked Chicago.

And not to be outdone, the volleyball team secured its 15th straight UAA title — and a berth in the NCAA Tournament, with the Bears’ first game at 7 p.m. today at the Field House — by knocking off host New York University, 3-0.
