The Drexel field hockey team pulled out of the pack this past weekend with two big conference wins.

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.

In order to be the best you have to beat the best. To challenge themselves early on, the Drexel field hockey team scheduled two top-10 teams in the country in the first four games of the season.

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. […]

Since Drexel women’s field hockey began the season with a 5-0 record, they have experienced a few bumps in the road.
