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.

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.

OAKMONT, Pa. - Chris Crawford was disappointed with his ball-striking at the U.S. Open. Any mistakes he made at Oakmont Country Club were not forgiven. But the fact that the amateur from Bensalem and Drexel shot a pair of 6-over-par 76s to miss the 36-hole cut in his first national championship did not take away from the sheer excitement of being here. "It was just spectacular," Crawford, one of 11 amateurs in the field, said Saturday after finishing his second round shortly before 9 a.m. "From Day 1, I had an awesome time all week being here.

OAKMONT, Pa. - It figured to be an exciting day Tuesday for Billy Henaghan at Oakmont Country Club. Not only was he going to serve as caddie for Drexel star Chris Crawford in a practice round for the U.S. Open, but one of the players in the group would be Jason Day, the No. 1 player in the world. However, excitement turned to concern at the par-3 sixth hole. When Henaghan walked around the edge of a steep greenside bunker to prepare to rake it for his player, he lost his balance and fell into the sand.

OAKMONT, Pa. - According to no less of an authority than Roy McAvoy of "Tin Cup" fame, the best thing about the U.S. Open is that it's the most democratic golf tournament in the solar system. According to Chris Crawford, that would not be wrong. "I'm living proof of that," the 22-year-old Bensalem native said Monday afternoon at Oakmont Country Club, where he will soon play in the game's second major of the season. "I don't think there's a better example probably than me. " According to the USGA, 9,827 nonexempt players tried to qualify for this championship.

A YOUNG mother gives up her newborn baby boy for adoption only months before her own high school graduation. The mother is 17. Nearly 50 years later, the mother, Victoria Huggins Peurifoy, tells the story in a letter to a son she saw only once. In a poem based off a family photograph, which includes a little girl, Carol Richardson McCullough writes of the sister she never met. The toddler died before McCullough was born. These are samples of the stories and poems collected in two new books, Anthology 2 and Portraits Through Time.

Mermaids, Picasso paintings, and the classic white shirt were just some of what inspired designers' collections this year at Drexel University's annual fashion show. Twenty senior and graduate students showcased five- to seven-piece groupings Saturday at the Urban Outfitters corporate headquarters at the Navy Yard. The presentation was fast-paced, dramatic, and replete with pieces fashioned from designer-made prints. Big winners included graduate student Ornella Santoni, who won the Carole Hochman Award for Creativity for a seductive collection of intimate apparel - bathing suits, panties, and strapless bras - that boasted strong graphic elements.

Home of the Phillies will become home of the Dragons on Saturday. For the first time in about two decades, Drexel University will hold a universitywide commencement ceremony, and its venue will be Citizens Bank Park. It's also a first for the park; the Phillies home field has never been used for a university graduation before. Instead of seeing Ryan Howard hit a home run, graduates and their families will get advice from commencement speaker Donna Shalala, former U.S. secretary of health and human services.

Looking back on Monday's 36 holes of qualifying to win a berth in the U.S. Open, Chris Crawford figured that he would have gladly taken a putt on the final green to have an opportunity to get to Oakmont next week. Crawford, who recently completed his golf eligibility at Drexel, indeed had that chance on his 36th hole, an uphill 40-foot putt with very little break. And the ball fell into the bottom of the cup, giving the Bensalem native a 73 for a 138 total and the sixth and final U.S. Open spot from Canoe Brook Golf Club in Summit, N.J. The U.S. Open is June 16-19 at Oakmont Country Club.

The setting was serious. A Drexel University dean and a colleague were brainstorming in 2010 on how to raise money for needy undergraduates. "How about if I do stand-up?" offered the dean, Gloria Ferraro Donnelly. The colleague laughed. The then-68-year-old dean of Drexel's College of Nursing and Health Professions as the next Rosie O'Donnell? Really? "Wait a minute, I'm serious," Donnelly insisted. "I believe that a lot of people will pay big money to see a dean make a fool of themselves.
