Not many names have more clout in the sport of cycling than Lance Armstrong. Regardless of his performance-enhancing drug usage, he was one of the world’s most dominant athletes for nearly two decades. This past Sunday, June 2, three Drexel University alumni raced in the Philly Cycling Classic, the same event that Armstrong won back [...]

Sports teams are often compared to cars. It is certainly not a surprising phenomenon, considering the growth in popularity of sports coinciding with the growth of the automobile industry in the United States. Analysts, coaches and fans throw around terminology like “well-oiled machine” and “firing on all cylinders” from time to time as appropriate accolades [...]
Never have expectations been higher for the Drexel men’s soccer team. After eight seniors graduated from a squad that won the regular season Colonial Athletic Association title, the Dragons will defend that title in every one of their seven conference matches this fall. After reaching the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 40 years [...]
I love sports. Trust me, they are the light of my life. Some of my most cherished memories involve sports, both as a fan and as an “athlete.” I am currently the assistant sports editor here at The Triangle, and I am set to graduate with a degree in sport management next March. Sports do [...]
A week after being named to the All-Colonial Athletic Association First Team, the Drexel men’s lacrosse team trio that head coach Brian Voelker called the “1-2-3 punch” moved on to the offseason lifestyle. Senior attack Robert Church appeared in the Daskalakis Athletic Center with some scrapes across his face and a cut on his nose; [...]
The Drexel men’s lacrosse team’s identity this season was no secret, as the Dragons boasted a run-and-gun style of play that resulted in lots of scoring opportunities. Was it entertaining? Absolutely. Was it consistent? Eh, not so much. At times, Drexel was unstoppable, filling the net at will while opponents looked like deer in the [...]
Some call it crunch time, some call it winning time, and some might call it something else entirely. Whatever you want to call it, the Drexel men’s lacrosse team does not care, because the Dragons are too busy taking care of business. After yet another comeback victory, a 14-11 win April 20 over Towson University, [...]
A regular-season win does not necessarily avenge a postseason loss from the previous year. But for the Drexel men’s lacrosse team, there is nothing wrong with a victory over a rival and a 4-1 Colonial Athletic Association record. The Dragons defeated the University of Massachusetts Amherst April 13 by a score of 15-14 in a closely [...]
Although it is a conference comprised of just seven schools, the Colonial Athletic Association has proven itself a premier source of men’s lacrosse since its inaugural season in 2001. Following a 5-2 out-of-conference record, Drexel was looking right down the barrel of a grueling six-game conference schedule that would ultimately decide the fate of the [...]
The Drexel men’s lacrosse team is a team of many teams, if that makes any sense. The Dragons could be classified as an exciting team, a high-octane team, a comeback team and a second-half team. But most importantly, they are a 3-1 team. “The good news is we’re 3-1 and working on a high right [...]
Pick your narrative for this week’s recap of the Drexel men’s lacrosse team. It could be the high-scoring shootout between Drexel and the University at Albany Feb. 23 at Vidas Field. The 20-19 win for the Dragons featured six goals and nine assists for the Great Danes’ three stars, brothers Lyle and Miles and cousin [...]
The Drexel University men’s lacrosse team travelled to Charlottesville, Va., for its season opener Feb. 16 and suffered a 13-12 overtime loss to the University of Virginia. Virginia senior attack Matt White scored his fourth goal of the game 11 seconds into overtime, clinching the Cavaliers’ victory over the Dragons for the sixth consecutive season. [...]
Ancient Greek storyteller Aesop famously constructed the phrase “Familiarity breeds contempt.” It is unlikely that he had NCAA men’s lacrosse in mind when he first uttered those words of wisdom, but they certainly apply to the rivalry between Drexel University and the University of Virginia. For the 13th consecutive season, the Dragons and Cavaliers will [...]
A few months ago over Labor Day weekend, my roommate invited my girlfriend and me to spend a few days with him and his girlfriend at his house in Tampa, Fla. We enjoyed the days sitting around the pool and spent the nights relaxing on the dock with fishing poles in the water. One night, [...]
As the Drexel men’s basketball team traveled to Harrisonburg, Va., to take on James Madison University Jan. 12, head coach James “Bruiser” Flint was shorthanded, as the Dragons had only seven players healthy and available to play. Senior forward Daryl McCoy, who had been playing through a foot injury in the team’s previous two games, [...]
As the Drexel men’s basketball team entered Colonial Athletic Association play with a disappointing 4-8 record, the Dragons looked to extend their 16-game winning streak in regular-season conference play. First on the schedule was a trip to Georgia State University Jan. 2 to face the Panthers. The Dragons held a slim 37-33 halftime lead on [...]
Something has been lost in the disappointing 2-6 start for the Drexel men’s basketball team. Samme Givens graduated last year, and Chris Fouch is lost for the season, which sure has given us a lot to talk about in the midst of the team’s early-season struggles. Still, we fully expect our Dragons to bounce back. [...]
All they could do was wait. As the 2012 NCAA College Cup bracket was revealed the evening of Nov. 12, the Drexel men’s soccer team gathered at the Vidas Athletic Complex fieldhouse and waited for their name to appear in the 48-team field. With 46 schools up on the board and just one matchup remaining, [...]
In recent memory, the Drexel men’s soccer team had been among the bottom-feeders of the Colonial Athletic Association. Since winning a share of the CAA regular-season title in 2007, the Dragons finished eighth twice and last twice in the past four seasons. Through the struggles and unlucky injuries in the first two seasons under head [...]
A season’s worth of hard work and success for the Drexel men’s soccer team has come down to a final showdown against defending regular-season conference champion James Madison University. Unfortunately for the Dragons and the Dukes, Hurricane Sandy forced the match, originally scheduled for Oct. 31 at Vidas Field, to be postponed to Nov. 2 [...]
