Drexel R-IV’s second quarter featured artist is senior Layne Irvin. “I wanted to make a realistic, photograph-like, black and white drawing,” Irvin said. “I have been primarily working on drawing people this year. I really tried to capture the expression and realism of Brian Wilson,” he added.

The Drexel Bobcats hosted three teams last week. They began the week with a huge 71-20 victory over Hume on Tuesday. Head Coach Dennis Bolton commented, “It was good to be able to get back on the floor after such a long lay off. The boys did a good job of finishing on the offensive end and also limiting Hume to only one shot.”
