Jameson Detweiler doesn’t usually go to the net. But in a scoreless, winner-take-all match against The College of William & Mary in the Colonial Athletic Association championship game, the redshirt freshman defender took a chance and followed team captain Tal Bublil into scoring range. In the 26th minute of the match, junior midfielder Michele Pataia […]

The Drexel field hockey team saw its season come to an end Nov. 8 against Northeastern University in the semifinal round of the Colonial Athletic Association Tournament. After an exciting season, the second-seeded Dragons took on the third-seeded Huskies and fell by a score of 2-0. It was 0-0 heading into halftime. Northeastern tacked on […]
Have you ever heard the adage “competition breeds champions”? Probably not, because I just made it up. But even though it is a phrase I just pulled out of my skull, it seems to apply greatly to the Drexel men’s soccer team in the Colonial Athletic Association. Because the CAA has grown to be one […]
The Drexel field hockey team found itself in a familiar position Nov. 3. After a tough loss Nov. 1 to their archrival, the University of Delaware, the Dragons needed to bounce back and get a win. Drexel’s hope for another Colonial Athletic Association Tournament at Vidas Field was gone after a 4-0 loss to the […]
They still have nearly six months until they don their game jerseys again and zip the ball through the air, but the Drexel women’s lacrosse team is excited — very excited — for the 2014 season. Last week’s big announcement that Hannah Rudloff would be the Dragons’ next head coach contributes to a greater anticipation. […]
Coming off a 2012-13 season in which the Drexel women’s basketball team won the Women’s National Invitation Tournament, Athletic Director Eric Zillmer announced May 30 that head coach Denise Dillon has agreed to a multiyear contract extension that will keep her at the school through 2020. The contract extension is not only for the record-breaking […]
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 University women’s lacrosse team wasn’t able to overcome top-seeded Towson University in the first round of the Colonial Athletic Association Tournament. The Dragons fell to the Tigers 8-7 May 3 in Towson, Md. The loss marked the end of the season for Drexel, with hopes of an NCAA bid slim. The game didn’t […]
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 […]
The Drexel University women’s lacrosse team (11-6, 4-3 Colonial Athletic Association) will enter the CAA Tournament on a two-game skid. They have also been outscored 15-5 combined in the first half of both games against Towson University (8-8, 6-1 CAA) and Hofstra University (10-7, 4-3 CAA). The team’s first-half woes have been an issue 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, […]
The Drexel University women’s lacrosse team (11-5, 4-2 Colonial Athletic Association) split a pair of weekend games against rivals the University of Delaware (10-6, 4-3 CAA) and Towson University (8-8, 6-1 CAA). The Dragons beat Delaware 11-6 April 19 in a game that saw the Blue Hens give up seven goals in the second half […]
Drexel’s tennis teams had mixed results in the Colonial Athletic Association Championship quarterfinals, but both the men’s and women’s seasons were done before the final matches of the tournament were played April 21. The women’s team fell to the rival University of Delaware in a tough 4-0 showing, as they were victims of matches ending […]
The Drexel men’s and women’s tennis teams will begin their respective Colonial Athletic Association tournaments in similar situations —- eerily similar, in fact. The men’s team, seeded fourth in the field, will face the fifth-seeded University of Delaware in the quarterfinals in a rematch of the final match of the regular season. The women’s team, […]
Drexel University’s men’s and women’s tennis teams celebrated matches with mixed results. Both teams faced off April 6 against the University of Delaware. The men pulled through with a 4-3 win, defeating Delaware for the first time in the history of the program, while the women suffered a 5-2 loss. The women started the match […]
If you watched the Drexel Dragons and George Mason University Patriots men’s basketball teams during the 2012-13 season, you would have seen a few common themes emerge. From the Drexel side, Damion Lee, a sophomore with the potential to be the best player in his conference by a mile, was painfully inconsistent without much of […]
Prior to the start of the Colonial Athletic Association Tournament, members of the Drexel Dragons women’s basketball team received well-deserved honors at the conference’s awards banquet March 13 in Upper Marlboro, Md. Senior guard Hollie Mershon was honored twice on the evening. Mershon was named First Team All-CAA for her efforts. She leads the Dragons […]
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 […]
