Their second place finish in the Southland Conference in 2003 was the highest in the program's history. Chapman's UTPA teams also recorded the school's first back-to-back winning seasons in 18 years and produced three All-Southland Conference selections for the men's program.
At the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma, Chapman served as the head coach of both the men's and women's teams. His teams earned successive NAIA National Tournament appearances and were nationally ranked as high as No. 13 (women) and No. 17 (men).
