After watching their most recent practice, I believe that one thing is clear about the 2013-14 Drexel women’s basketball team: They are nowhere near the caliber of the team that won the Women’s National Invitation Tournament championship last year. They are a young, raw team trying to find out what type of team they can […]

The 2012-13 season for Drexel’s swimming and diving teams had its ups and downs, to say the least.

Their season ended with a seventh-place finish at the Colonial […]
Drexel women’s soccer is coming off one of the best seasons the program has ever seen. The Dragons had a record of 13-3-3 last year, but suffered a semifinal shoot out loss to the University of North Carolina Wilmington, ending their great run. However, like any program, a great season most likely meant you had […]
Never have expectations been higher for the Drexel men’s soccer team. After eight seniors graduated from a squad that won the regular season Colonial Athletic Association title, the Dragons will defend that title in every one of their seven conference matches this fall.

The 2012-2013 season for the Drexel men’s and women’s tennis teams was a successful year under head coach Mehdi Rhazali. Last year, Rhazali was promoted to head coach of a Dragons program looking to make a mark within the Colonial Athletic Association. In a short period of time, Rhazali has made an initial mark and […]
If you were to ask most young girls about their ideal “Cinderella story,” a typical response would consist of falling in love, attending some sort of magical dance and living happily ever after. But you were to ask four special Drexel women, they would have a completely different story. And they would be able to […]
