SHU softball freshman shining in young season

For most freshman athletes, expectations are usually low. However, Seton Hall catcher Darby Pandolfo has not been just any freshman thus far, as she has been raising the bar with her veteran-like numbers. The Massapequa, N.Y. native began her collegiate career with a bang through the team’s first three games this season. Pandolfo went 8-12 with four doubles, a triple, a home run and seven RBIs, leading the Pirates to three straight...

Pitching struggles pester Pirates in early season contests

The starting rotation was supposed to be the backbone of the Seton Hall baseball team heading into this season. However, after 18 games, the top of the Pirates’ staff has been arguably their biggest disappointment thus far. Last spring, SHU rode its stellar pitching staff to a 38-20 record and third place finish in the Big East. They were led by two dominant starting pitchers in Shane McCarthy, now a junior, and Cullen Dana, now a...

Club Golf team gaining momentum at Seton Hall

Although Seton Hall has both men’s and women’s NCAA Division I golf teams, the school is now introducing a new club golf team this spring. Two years ago as a sophomore, Brendan Davis attempted to start a club team, but with minimal success. The team did not garner much, if any, interest from students, leaving Davis to play on his own. He has since competed in multiple National Collegiate Club Golf Association events. “I’ve played in...

Bozzella reflects on seniors, future of WBB

Last Sunday was the Pirates’ Senior Day, as they played their last home game of the season in a loss against Villanova. Before the game, Seton Hall honored its graduating seniors with a ceremony. Those honored included Tara Inman, Kat Egan and...

Why sticking to sports is nonsense

In an era where sports and politics are becoming increasingly intertwined, many have called out sports writers and broadcasters for expressing their opinions of the current state of American politics, telling them to “stick to sports.” However, the idea that anyone in the sports media should strictly “stick to sports” is wrong. Even if one believes the two subject matters should be discussed separately, the age of sticking to sports...

Pirates struggling to share and take care of the ball

The last two seasons, the Seton Hall men’s basketball team has made its mark on the Big East as a force to be reckoned with, defined by the team’s overwhelming physicality and relentlessness on defense. However, as the midpoint of the Big East schedule approaches, the Pirates are struggling to recapture their mojo from the previous season and sit at just 3-5 in conference play. Leading into play against Xavier on Feb. 1, this year’s...
