He was told when the season began not to even bother coming out for the team. He decided to walk on, anyway. No one gave him much of a chance, least of all Drexel, which didn't even list him on its preseason roster. So yesterday was sweet redemption for Chris Kohles. The 6-foot-6 junior forward from Abington High picked up a crucial offensive rebound and scored what proved to be the winning basket as Drexel beat Northeastern, 71-64, to go 20-3 overall, 10-1 in the North Atlantic Conference.

Drexel's unbeaten varsity eight won its third race of the season at yesterday's sixth annual La Salle University Invitational Regatta. Boats from 22 schools participated on the Cooper River in Camden County Park. Drexel, coached by Steve Orova and victorious over George Washington and St. Joseph's in previous regattas, stroked powerfully over the 2,000-meter course to win in 6 minutes, 12.1 seconds, in a cold, sharp crosswind. Bucknell was many lengths back in second place and later triumphed in the women's varsity eight.

Delran's Christine Kasprzak, a three-year starting midfielder, will play her college soccer at Drexel. Kasprzak signed a letter of intent with Drexel on Thursday evening. She was a first-team all-Burlington County Liberty Division selection last fall, when the Bears went 17-3-2 and were ranked fifth in South Jersey by The Inquirer. An unsung midfielder also known for her defensive skill, Kasprzak scored six goals as a senior. Kasprzak said she received a partial academic and a partial soccer scholarship.

Drexel and Bradley will have to win their respective conference tournaments to reach the NCAA tournament. Drexel is 13-11, while Bradley is 11-11.

Tim Whitworth led Drexel to an 80-76 victory over William and Mary in a seesaw Colonial Athletic Association game last night. Whitworth, a graduate of Chestnut Hill Academy, scored 22 of his 30 points in the second half. That included a three-pointer that broke a 74-74 tie with 29 seconds left. Drexel (8-6, 3-2 Colonial) and William and Mary (4-11, 1-5) followed a roundabout route to that tie. William and Mary had led by as much as 11 in the first half. Drexel, which trailed by 38-35 at halftime, led by as much as 14 in the second half.

ZACH MAKOVSKY walked into the wrestling room at 34th and Market with a fresh shiner. Occupational hazard, he said. "A black eye?" Makovsky shrugged. "Yeah, it's pretty common. " Makovsky looks like the boy next door, but don't get in the ring with him. At 5-4, 125 pounds, he's almost cherubic, except for that shiner.

Drexel University's newest housing complex won't have a dining commons or a study lounge. But it will have two floors of high-end day care and apartments at prices your typical undergrad would struggle to afford. Administrators hope the $55 million 3201 Race St. project on university-owned land will provide homes and child care to a mix of faculty and staff and a yearned-for influx of researchers and techies with ties to the private sector, not necessarily the school itself. The permanent year-round population of young professionals at the residential tower - and others like it to come - are part of Drexel's bid to tip the balance in its surrounding neighborhoods from gown toward town.

DREXEL SENIOR Dean Hill has been racing on the Schuylkill River for years, so it's no surprise that he and the rest of the men's varsity four boat pulled out a photo finish for a silver medal and helped the Dragons to their third consecutive Aberdeen Dad Vail Regatta title on Saturday. Hill's varsity four boat finished with a time of 6 minutes, 33.884 seconds, good for a silver medal, and just narrowly trailing Brock University's boat, which clocked in at 6:33.682 in perhaps the most exciting finish of the weekend.

It can be difficult to think that from the start of fall classes in September, nine months of practice and competition for the men's and women's crew teams of Drexel point to just two days in May - the Aberdeen Dad Vail Regatta. But no one can argue that the Dragons have been successful planning their season like that, as they did again Saturday. The Dragons continued their victorious run on the Schuylkill, winning the overall points title for the third consecutive year and adding their second men's championship in three years.

The weather was hot Friday and so was the rowing on the Schuylkill on the first day of competition in the 77th annual Aberdeen Dad Vail Regatta, where the three champions from the 2014 races all looked sharp and ready to repeat. Drexel, looking for a third consecutive overall points title, advanced 12 of the 13 boats it entered. Michigan, the defending men's champion, moved on to the next round in seven events while Massachusetts stayed on schedule for a second straight women's title by qualifying six boats.

Drexel crew coach Paul Savell acknowledges that everything his men's and women's teams have done on the water in recent months has pointed to this weekend at the Aberdeen Dad Vail Regatta. And his rowers couldn't be happier that Friday's opening day of the 77th edition of the nation's largest collegiate regatta is finally here. "Waiting always is the hardest part," senior Cat Hamilton, coxswain of the women's varsity eight, said Thursday after practice on the Schuylkill. "Once we're in the boat, we're all ready to go.

Brian Propp held a bottle of water Wednesday morning, standing on the back dock of the Bachelors Barge Club on Boathouse Row. His daughter Paige asked, "Are you hydrating?" "I had my coffee," replied the former Flyers star. Propp, 56, had skipped his usual early-morning skate because he was taking part in a little warm-up media event for this weekend's Dad Vail Regatta. Propp was about to compete on an ergometer, an indoor rowing machine, with former Eagles receiver Fred Barnett, former Sixers star World B. Free, and what turned out to be a ringer - Franklin, the Sixers mascot.

AIDAN KERRIGAN enjoys the best of both worlds almost year-round. In autumn, the 5-11, 220-pound linebacker blasted ballcarriers for La Salle High. Springtime, however, it's all about lacrosse, and offense. "There's a balance to it," Kerrigan said after the Explorers clobbered Archbishop Carroll, 19-5, on Monday. "In the fall, I get to hit people. In the spring, I get to score goals. "I like scoring goals," the Maple Glen resident continued. "It's really fun. It's kind of cool to do two different things, because each season has something different.

A group of vocal anti-drilling activists Thursday night briefly disrupted a Drexel University symposium on exporting liquefied natural gas, giving the city a flavor of the opposition that LNG might arouse. "I'm sorry, I'm going to have to interrupt you and ask you to sit down," City Councilman David Oh said to one of the activists. Drexel security personnel escorted about seven of the protesters out after they persisted. Oh organized the event, attended by about 100 people, to explore the feasibility of locating a facility in the city to liquefy Marcellus Shale natural gas for export.
