Women’s Soccer (7–8–4), led by a dynamic sophomore class, finished the regular season tied for first place in the Landmark Con­ference before reaching the semifinals of the conference tournament. The overall record reflected one of the toughest schedules in the region.

Men’s Soccer (11–5–5) won the Landmark’s regular season title for the second straight year and captured the ECAC Metro Tournament Championship. The team had one of the best defenses in the country—the Rangers ranked sixth in the NCAA in team goals against average.

Cross Country made great strides under first-year Head Coach Bob Koppenol. Steve Monte­leone C’12 and Zack Mower C’13 became the first two Runnin’ Ranger men to place in the Land­mark’s Top 30. Ashley Walker C’10 took a Top 25 place at the conference championships for the fourth time in her career.

Field Hockey (12–8) had one of the highest scoring teams in Drew history and reached the Landmark Conference semifinals. Seniors Nicole DiBattista and Eliza­beth Law helped provide the season’s highlight, a golden goal in a 3–2 home upset of 15th-place Stevens.
