UChicago Senior Blanket Winners

114th Annual Women's Athletic Association Banquet

WAA was originally founded in 1904 and evolved from an organization that promoted intramural opportunities to the letterwinner's organization for varsity women. The purpose of the WAA is to "encourage close relationships between the women athletes of the University of Chicago in order that they may work together as a body to promote women's athletics."

Seniors Khia Kurtenbach (center) and Mia Calamari (right), shown here with Director of Athletics Erin McDermott, both were awarded the Gertrude Dudley medal, given to the outstanding senior athlete for leadership and skill in women's athletics.

Kirby Award, presented annually to a female senior student-athlete, who - through her participation in multiple sports and/or extensive support of multiple University of Chicago teams, her leadership in the Women's Athletic Association or significant leadership of her own team, and her exemplary service to the campus community - truly honors the legacy of the award's namesake, Pat Kirby.
Senior Megan Verner-Crist (cross country & indoor/outdoor track and field) was awarded the Mary Jean Mulvaney Scholar-Athlete Award, presented to the senior blanket winner with the highest junior and senior grade point average.
