At the plate, the Pirates were led by centerfielder Ryan Ramiz and first baseman Matt Toke. Ramiz set the table for the Pirates at the...

Softball offense erupts to bounce back in Georgetown doubleheader

Saturday was a tale of two stories for Seton Hall softball, who split their doubleheader with the Georgetown Hoyas. In the first game, the usually hard-hitting Pirates offense was the culprit, giving them a 6-1 loss. However, they flipped the switch in a big way in the second game, beating the Hoyas by a score of 10-2. As it has been the entire season, the Pirates offensive production was the key. It was clear that Georgetown pitcher...

SHU baseball’s offense too much for Wagner

On Wednesday, the Seton Hall Pirates defeated the Wagner Seahawks by a final score of 9-2. In what was their final tune up before Big East play, the Pirates pitching staff shut down Wagner’s offense and cruised to a win. Early on, it looked as if Pirates starter Chris Morris could throw a gem. However, his location plagued him, causing his pitch count to run up early. He was pulled in the fifth inning after 96 pitches and two earned...

UConn women’s dominance goes beyond talent

On March 31, the greatest winning streak in sports history ended when Mississippi State defeated UConn’s women’s basketball team in overtime, 66-64.

Raiders relocation brings mixed bag to NFL

On March 27, NFL owners voted to allow the relocation of the Oakland Raiders to Las Vegas, Nev. After years of botched stadium deals and relocation attempts, the move seemed inevitable. The relocation will be league’s third in the last year, after the St. Louis Rams and San Diego Chargers ditched their longtime homes for Los Angeles, Cal. While it may seem cynical to let a franchise move to Sin City, there is a solid argument to be...

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...
