The Owls' women won three events on the day, helping their team to break Drexel's six-year streak as overall points champion while garnering women's points honors. The Dragons captured the men's points title.
The Owls advanced 12 boats -- seven men's and five women's -- into Saturday's finals while the Dragons qualified for eight (four and four). Drexel is seeking its eighth consecutive overall points title but should be pushed by Temple.
The Owls' senior from Havertown has parents who were rowers at Villanova, and two older brothers who preceded him in the sport at St. Joseph's Prep. Now he is seeking to help lead Temple to a repeat victory in the heavyweight eight at the Jefferson Dad Vail Regatta.
