Carl Brandon Boor) The 4th annual Ohio Collegiate Chess Championship was held on March 31, 2001 on the campus of Ohio Wesleyan University. Tom Green, co-advisor of the Bishops Chess Club, organized and directed with Paul Gardner, Ohio State, assisting.

Twelve players participated in this year's event. Six players were students at The Ohio State University, three from Ohio Wesleyan, two from Oberlin College, and one from Union Institute.

Carl Brandon Boor, a sophomore at The Ohio State University, won all four of his games. He received $100 and the trophy for top individual. Radu Murgescu, a junior at Ohio Wesleyan University, and Kris Bertoglio, a sophomore at Ohio Wesleyan, split the $75 second prize money. The Ohio State University won the team traveling trophy with 8.5 points, one-half point ahead of Ohio Wesleyan, last year's winner.
