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 […]

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 men’s lacrosse team split its two games last week, defeating Bryant University before falling to Bucknell University. With the split, the team moved its record to 4-2 and is currently ranked 13th in the nation. The Dragons knocked off the Bryant Bulldogs with a score of 11-5 March 9 at Vidas Field. The victory […]
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 […]
Drexel senior Aaron Prosser was selected with the 36th overall pick in last weekend’s Major League Lacrosse player entry draft. Prosser, a midfielder, was selected in the fifth round by the Denver Outlaws. The selection comes one year after Prosser’s best career season to date, in which he scored 24 goals and tallied six assists. […]
Men’s Lacrosse Names 2012-13 Captains After a largely successful season that almost put the Drexel University men’s lacrosse team into the NCAA Tournament, the players have named their new captains. Midfielders Garrett McIntosh and Aaron Prosser and defenseman Chris Walsh, all seniors, will be captains for the 2012-13 season. McIntosh didn’t make any starts in […]
Senior defenseman Dana Wilber was named to the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association All-American third team May 24. His addition to the All-American team made 2012 the fifth out of the previous six years that a Dragon was named to the honorable roster. He joined Scott Perri, Mark Manos, Bruce Bickford, and Adam Crystal. Despite […]
Both Drexel University and the greater Philadelphia region will be in the national spotlight this weekend as four teams come to town for the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Quarterfinals. The University of Virginia, the University of Notre Dame, Colgate University and Duke University will put a bid to the Final Four on the line in a […]
After defeating Penn State University in the semifinals of the Colonial Athletic Association Tournament, the Dragons earned themselves a spot in the championship game against the top-ranked team in the nation, the undefeated University of Massachusetts. Unfortunately, this was where Drexel’s journey came to an end, as the Minutemen outscored the Dragons 18-12 May 5 […]
Drexel senior defender Dana Wilber keeps his distance against a University of Notre Dame attackman during the Dragons 5-6 loss to the Irish at Vidas Field March 3. It’s always great to go out on top. While the Drexel University men’s lacrosse team could not bring home the ultimate prize, the Colonial Athletic Association Championship, […]
Drexel junior attackman Robert Church shoots one bye Villanova University goalkeeper Dan Gutierrez. Church scored one goal and two assists in the 9-14 loss to the Wildcats at Villanova Feb. 28. Church on the season leads the Dragons with 24 goals and 42 points. Coming off clinching a spot in the Colonial Athletic Association Tournament […]
Though the Drexel University men’s lacrosse team has experienced its ups and downs, the Dragons completely annihilated Towson University 13-5 April 21 in the final Colonial Athletic Association match of the regular season to earn a spot in postseason play. It was neck-and-neck early in the contest, with Drexel leading 2-1 at the end of […]
It is ironic in sports that the players who win individual awards are usually the most modest; these two Drexel Athletes of the Week are no different. Junior women’s lacrosse attacker Kelli Joran and senior men’s lacrosse midfielder Kyle Bergman led their respective teams to vital victories this week and have each humbly received the […]
