BURLINGTON, Vt. -- Towson's men's soccer season ended in disappointment yesterday, as the top-seeded Tigers fell to No. 3 Drexel in the America East tournament final.Seeking its first league championship since 1991, when it played in the East Coast Conference, Towson instead was handed a 2-1 loss by an enterprising Dragons squad that got to the title game by knocking off five-time America East kingpin Boston University.Drexel took that game, 2-0 on Friday, then upended the regular-season champion Tigers.

PHILADELPHIA -- The buzz before the start of the women's 10,000 meters at the Penn Relays last night surrounded Joan Samuelson, but Villanova sophomore Carole Zajac gave the crowd a new heroine with a collegiate record of 32 minutes, 22.96 seconds.Zajac is a native of Pittsburgh and won the high school 3,000 here two years ago. The latest in a line of Villanova stars that included Vicki Huber and Sonia O'Sullivan, Zajac is now very much a prospect for the U.S. Olympic team.Samuelson, the 1984 Olympic gold medalist in the marathon, is trying for the Olympic trials in the 10,000 after missing the marathon trials in January with the flu. The 34-year-old will have to try again after running fourth overall in 33:21.
