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.

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.

Drexel pressed the defending champs in both the Dad Vail men's and women's varsity heavyweight eight finals, and Temple won a bronze in the men's varsity eight in Gavin White's last Dad Vail as Owls head coach. But the big college races of 2016 on the Schuylkill were taken by the same boats that won them in 2015. Florida Tech repeated in the men's V8, this time grabbing an early lead instead of coming from behind as it did a year ago. Drexel took second, up from third a year ago, while Temple grabbed bronze, the first men's V8 medal for the Owls since 2008.

On the banks of the Schuylkill, by the Drexel Dragons' tent at Saturday's Dad Vail Regatta, there were cheers and shouts of support as a group of racing boats passed by, slicing through the water. There also were cowbells. And ringing the mother of them all was Gerry Gartland. "Go, Drexel! Go, Drexel !" screamed Gartland, who works in quality assurance for the State of New Jersey. Clang! Clang! Clang! went his bell. "The other teams don't like that cowbell," his daughter Emily Gartland, a Drexel senior, said quietly.

Chris Henderson says the members of the Drexel varsity heavyweight eight see their counterparts from Temple "on the water every morning. " The two local boats might see each other at the finish line of the last race of the 78th annual Dad Vail Regatta on Saturday afternoon. Drexel and Temple won their heats during qualifying action on a cool, misty morning Friday on the Schuylkill. "I'm not surprised," said veteran Temple coach Gavin White, whose team posted the fastest time of the morning in 5 minutes, 54.771 seconds.

When John A. Fry arrived at Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster 14 years ago as a candidate for college president, the first thing he saw was a shuttered linoleum manufacturing plant that loomed across the street. "If I get this job, that goes," he thought, wincing at the hulking mass of brick buildings and smokestacks that rose behind the college fitness center. "You couldn't think about a worse way to introduce a campus. " The notion was far from whimsical, considering it came from Fry, who was fresh off his pivotal role at the University of Pennsylvania in revitalizing its West Philadelphia neighborhood.

Nearly 125 years ago, the woman who would become only the second American-born saint left her gilded-age Philadelphia family and poured her $20 million inheritance into a religious order. Over decades, Katharine Drexel's congregation grew to more than 600 sisters, running schools designed to uplift minority populations long before the civil rights era. But the passion of St. Katharine, who died in 1955 and was canonized in 2000, couldn't shield the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament from the declining membership and financial pressures straining most Roman Catholic orders.

Blake said Dennis agreed to stay while the university conducts a national search for his replacement.

Drexel professor André M. Carrington has been a longtime devotee of comic books, science fiction, and everything dorky. His first book, Speculative Blackness: The Future of Race in Science Fiction , is a thoughtful analysis of the genre's attempts to grapple with ethnicity. In it he ranges over delightfully vast tracts of fiction, from the Marvel comics empire to the fantasy world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the representations of black women from the British imperial diaspora.

The sounds of wood slamming against wood, of wheels sliding over a ramp, and of sudden crash landings echoed around the white walls of Drexel University's Pearlstein Gallery on Tuesday. Yet no one seemed alarmed. "They're shredding in there," said Ed Solego, a former pro-skateboarder-turned-skate-shop-owner-and-videographer. For the next eight weeks, the space will be transformed from a traditional art gallery into an interactive, pop-up skate park called Philly Radness, set against a projected backdrop that fluctuates in response to the skaters' movements and to the noises they make as they roll and clatter around the space.
