First, I’d just like to describe my first-ever assignment for The Triangle. I will always remember the day I moved into Towers at the beginning of my freshman year. After all of the hard work and heavy lifting was done, my parents and I decided to roam the campus. We walked down 33rd from Arch [...]

The late Laura Meikle Koch dribbles the ball down the field during a home game on the Vidas grass. The program’s former top scorer died of lung cancer at the age of 28. Buckley Recreational Field is the central hub of Drexel recreational athletics. From intramural soccer and flag football to pickup soccer matches, wiffle [...]
Last week, when Drexel women’s lacrosse head coach Anna Marie Vesco was asked what her expectations were against top-seeded Towson University in the first round of the Colonial Athletic Association Championships, her response was simple. “… Of course my answer would be to win it all,” she said. Despite a solid effort in which the [...]
It’s official. For the second consecutive season and the second time in program history, the Drexel women’s lacrosse team has qualified for the Colonial Athletic Association playoffs. That being said, the road to the CAA playoffs was rough, and the road through the playoffs will not be easy, either. In order to qualify, the Dragons [...]
Defense seems to be the key to winning in almost any team sport. The cliche “Defense wins championships” is commonly used to make this point. Despite its overuse, the phrase does have merit. Drexel women’s lacrosse head coach Anna Marie Vesco hopes her team plays well defensively in the last two games of the regular [...]
Drexel junior attacker hangs around the opponents net during the Dragons 18-10 defeat of the St. Joseph’s University Hawks at Vidas Field Feb. 22. Maiden scored two goals and had one assist on the day. She now has a team-high 40 points on the year. With four games remaining in the season, all within the [...]
After winning a program-record 29 games, including 19 straight at one point, making it all the way to the quarterfinals of the National Invitation Tournament after the emotional roller coaster that is the NCAA Tournament selection process, head coach Bruiser Flint and his team were simply exhausted. Who could blame them after the outstanding season [...]
Drexel head coach James “Bruiser” Flint roams the sidelines during the Dragons 56-59 loss to Virginia Commonwealth University in the Colonial Athletic Association Championship game. The tournament took place in Richmond, Va. at the Richmond Coliseum. Drexel vs. the world — not necessarily. The above statement has caught on as “the thing” to say after [...]
A schedule that consists of three top-10 teams in the first five games must belong to a team of high caliber and a rich history. Not to say that the Drexel men’s lacrosse team doesn’t have a rich history — they have been extremely successful as of late, being ranked in the top 20 at [...]
The Drexel men’s basketball team has suffered its first loss in what seems like all season, as the team hasn’t lost a game since Jan. 2. Junior Derrick Thomas was recently charged with simple assault and criminal trespass. The charges stem from an incident that took place in December on La Salle University’s campus, according [...]
From one senior to another, I wish I had a senior day that was focused on all of my accomplishments. Drexel senior forward Samme Givens had his, and now it was time for Old Dominion University’s Kent Bazemore to get his — but Drexel wasn’t having it. The Dragons gave him the opportunity Feb. 25 [...]
If there were a night in which Drexel men’s basketball has seen more positives, one would be hard pressed to find it. The Dragons defeated James Madison University 78-61 at the DAC Feb. 22 for their 16th consecutive victory. The win gives Drexel (24-5, 15-2 Colonial Athletic Association) the second-longest active Division I winning streak [...]
Ten years ago a Drexel Athletics staff member named Sean Joyce had a dream. Although people continuously told him his idea had no chance and that many had failed to accomplish the same feat many times before, Joyce did not back down. Despite many drawbacks, an extremely small group of members and faulty first attempts [...]
In 2010-11 the Drexel men’s basketball team won 21 games overall, 11 of which were in their conference. The 20th victory in the season came in the final game of the regular season against the Towson Tigers, the same team they would beat in the first round of the conference tournament just one week later. [...]
Drexel freshman guard Damion Lee goes up for a shot at the DAC during the Dragons 68-48 win over Georgia State Jan. 25. From Feb. 13, 1988 until Feb. 4, 1989, the University of Richmond Spiders, then members of the Colonial Athletic Association, won 17 consecutive regular-season conference matchups. That is the CAA’s longest standing [...]
Drexel junior guard Chris Fouch dribbles the ball around the three-point line, while being defended by George Mason redshirt sophomore guard Sherrod Wright during the Dragons 60-53 win over the Patriots at the DAC Jan. 12. Fouch scored six points in 13 minutes. One more win. That’s right, one more consecutive victory and the Drexel [...]
Sophomore point guard Frantz Massenat holds the ball away from George Mason sophomore point guard Byron Allen. Massenat scored 12 points in the 60-53 victory. A freshman is the toast of the campus this week as freshman guard Derrick Lee dropped 21 points — 16 in the second half — to completely take over the [...]
It’s a little after 7 p.m and the cold wind is blowing. The Hall of Fame Club level of Citizens Bank Park is full to capacity as the players walk out of the tunnel, through the dugout and onto the field, finally making their way onto the ice rink located in shallow center field. The [...]
C.J. Aiken — pause for effect. That name will be ringing in the ears of Bruiser Flint’s players for many days to come. In fact, if — and that’s a big if — any of the Dragons are able to get some shuteye in the near future, Aiken will be there as well, haunting their [...]
With just over four minutes remaining in the first half Nov. 15 in Lawrenceville, N.J., the Rider Broncs led the Dragons 26-18 and things weren’t looking too good for the Colonial Athletic Association favorites. But that thought was quickly demolished as Drexel proceeded to go on a 10-2 run to head into the locker room [...]
