Drexel University: 2022-2023 Season Preview

Drexel University Dragons

2022-2023 Season Preview 

  • The Drexel women made a magical run to the Howe Cup final last year, capturing their highest finish in program history and injecting incredible energy into the Drexel athletics community.
  • The Dragon women return almost the entire main core of their finalist roster from last season, including All-Americans Karina Tyma and Alina Bushma, and hopes will be high for a repeat performance this season.
  • All-Americans Matias Knudsen and Haris Qasim will slide into key leadership positions for the men’s squad after former No. 1 Lucas Rousselet graduated last season. Can they keep pace and maintain their Top-8 positioning?

Quote from Coach: CSA’s Women’s Squash has improved tremendously over the last 5 or so years. The talent and depth of competition is fantastic for our sport. We are excited to play against some of these great teams and look forward to some great challenges throughout the year. On the men’s side, we are excited to be bringing back some strong returners as well as two new incoming students who will contribute to top-9 play regularly. We are looking to improve on last year’s challenges”.
