There was some excitement to be found from the men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams following their performance Nov. 22-24 in the Frank Elm Invitational at the Rutgers University Aquatic Center. The Dragons didn’t come home with a first-place finish, but they have proven themselves valid competitors in the Colonial Athletic Association. This year’s […]

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 […]
The wait is over. The Drexel men’s basketball team kicks off its season Nov. 8 with a contest in Los Angeles against the University of California, Los Angeles. The Bruins pose a serious challenge for the Dragons on opening night, as they are ranked 22nd in the Preseason Associated Press Poll and 23rd in the […]
For Drexel fans, the upcoming women’s basketball season will be one of transition. Head coach Denise Dillon returns with only two starters from last year’s campaign. The Dragons have lost 74 percent of their scoring due to the graduation of Taylor Wootton, Hollie Mershon, Renee Johnson-Allen and Nicki Jones. But as in previous years, Dillon […]
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 […]
The Drexel field hockey team pulled out of the pack this past weekend with two big conference wins. The Dragons not only put themselves in position to make the postseason but also to secure home-field advantage in the Colonial Athletic Association Tournament. Before the Oct. 25 game against The College of William & Mary, Drexel […]
The Drexel swimming and diving teams traveled to Baltimore to take on Loyola University Maryland, Lafayette College and Seton Hall University Oct. 26. The men’s team conquered the meet with wins against all three opponents to remain undefeated for the season; they beat Loyola 196-103, Lafayette 208-90 and Seton Hall 207-89. The women also brought […]
Junior Damion Lee stands at 6 feet 6 inches, 200 pounds. He’s a lanky, sprawling shooting guard whose three-pointer is one of the most deadly in the Colonial Athletic Association. He’s also probably the most soft-spoken player on the entire men’s basketball team. But don’t let that fool you — he means business this season. […]
When senior night rolls around each year, the lights seem to shine a little brighter, the stage seems a little bigger, and the stakes seem a little higher. Of course, any Colonial Athletic Association match in late October or early November is important when a spot in the conference tournament is on the line. As […]
Although they did their part over the weekend, the Drexel women’s soccer team’s season ended short of a Colonial Athletic Association playoff berth. The Dragons were eliminated Oct. 27 despite defeating the University of North Carolina Wilmington and the College of Charleston in their final two games. Drexel entered the weekend with a small chance […]
In collegiate sports, conference games are generally more important than those of the out-of-conference variety. This surely rings true for the Drexel men’s soccer team, which is now 3-0-1 in Colonial Athletic Association play and 4-6-1 when playing teams outside of the conference. For the middle two matches in a four-match road trip, the Dragons […]
Drexel’s women’s soccer team’s hopes for another Colonial Athletic Association Tournament appearance darkened last week, as the team dropped its match Oct. 18 against the University of Delaware by a score of 1-0. Coming off a breakthrough victory, one that saw them snap a 530-minute scoreless streak, the Dragons were looking to build some late-season […]
The Drexel field hockey team is coming off a weekend of ups and downs against two tough conference opponents. To open the weekend, the Dragons traveled to Boston Oct. 11 to take on Northeastern University in a rematch of the 2012 Colonial Athletic Association championship game. The Dragons put themselves in good positions to score […]
Oh, how the tables have turned. After being shut out in two consecutive matches against Temple University and Princeton University, the Drexel men’s soccer team has now shut out its opponents in each of the last two matches. These strong defensive efforts resulted in a scoreless draw vs. Northeastern University and a 2-0 win over […]
The men’s tennis team traveled to Lehigh University to play in the Lehigh Invitational Oct. 5-6. Separately, the women’s team visited Rider University for a team match against the Broncs. There were lots of solid wins for both teams, which will fuel the Dragons as they prepare for the ITA Northeast Regionals at Harvard University, […]
The Drexel field hockey team went 1-1 last weekend, and even though its six-game win streak was snapped, a loss may be more valuable in the long run. The Dragons started the weekend with a 6-1 win over Dartmouth College at Vidas Field, and it was a total team effort, as six different players scored […]
Something must be in the water at Vidas Field, or maybe there has been a bad batch of Wheaties going around. Perhaps, most realistically, someone put a hex on the Dragons, because suddenly, none of the Drexel athletic teams can score goals! Women’s soccer has been shut out in four consecutive matches, and field hockey […]
The Drexel women’s soccer team’s struggles continued offensively. For the fourth straight game, the Dragons failed to get on the scoreboard and were shut out 2-0 Oct. 6 by James Madison University. Drexel fell to 4-8-1 on the season and has yet to win a game within the Colonial Athletic Association, falling to 0-3 in […]
