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. […]

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 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 […]
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 […]
Last weekend started off with the Drexel women’s lacrosse team extending its win streak to four games, only to see it snap there a few days later. The team split its Colonial Athletic Association games against George Mason University and James Madison University April 12 and 14. The Dragons used a strong second half, including […]
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 University women’s lacrosse team opened the conference portion of its schedule with two wins to take an early lead atop the Colonial Athletic Association. The Dragons defeated The College of William & Mary 11-9 and Old Dominion University 8-4 April 5 and 7, respectively. “Getting two early wins in the CAA is hugely […]
The Drexel University women’s lacrosse team faced the 11th-ranked Pennsylvania State University March 22 and only lost by one goal. A little over a week later, the Dragons hosted the University of California, Davis and won 9-7. Those two games placed Drexel at 7-3 on the season. The Dragons have the best record in 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 […]
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 […]
The Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers aren’t the only ones scoring an abundance of goals these days. In the two Drexel University women’s lacrosse games this week, sophomore midfielder Amanda Norcini scored five goals and was named Drexel co-Athlete of the Week along with the men’s second varsity eight boat. “To receive this recognition is […]
When talking about former Drexel student-athlete Carol Hyun, long-time women’s basketball coach Lillian Haas said it best, “Carol Hyun was women’s athletics at Drexel for four years.” From 1963 to 1967, Hyun played basketball, lacrosse and field hockey at the varsity level and earned a total of 12 letters in those sports. For her stellar […]
