Molina endures road less traveled to become SHU baseball linchpin

Seton Hall senior shortstop Al Molina does not hesitate when diving for a line drive through the gap. He has experienced lows before. A standout for Red Bank Catholic High School, Molina was handed what seemed on the surface like two golden tickets during his senior season of high school in 2014. As it turned out, those tickets were fool’s gold. Molina had to choose between going pro after getting drafted in the 29th-round by the...

Softball’s Janae Barracato an unstoppable freshman force

Janae Barracato may just be a freshman, but she carries herself with the unwavering demeanor of a senior. No situation has slowed down the infielder-turned-center-fielder from Hempstead, N.Y., whether it be a new position, long-distance travel or the heightened level of pitching in the Big East. In just the first 30 days of her inaugural collegiate season, Barracato traveled to San Antonio and Huntsville, Texas, Greensboro, N.C., in...

Q&A with former SHU baseball player and current Director of Baseball Operations, Zack Weigel

Zack Weigel arrived at Seton Hall in the fall of 2012. By his own admission, offers from Division I schools to play college baseball were not flying through his doors like the pop flies he would eventually catch at Owen T. Carroll Field. Seton Hall was the school that gave Weigel, from Oak Park, Ill., a chance. Weigel delivered with two All-Big East Second Team selections, as he played an integral part in a four-year stretch in which...

After World Cup catastrophe, a new day for U.S. soccer is here

The development of soccer in the United States did not just run through a minor pothole last October when the U.S. men’s national team did not qualify for the World Cup, it veered off the side of the road. Repairing such damage is impossible, because the program cannot get back what it will lose by not being in the World Cup this summer; the impact is impossible to measure. Certainly, young national team players like Christian Pulisic...

Mamukelashvili eager to impact in the tournament

The Seton Hall men’s basketball season has been largely about the team’s four seniors, but those seniors have had a job beyond winning this season: tutoring the next generation. Sandro Mamukelashvili is part of the class that came to Seton Hall this fall, thought of as part of the answer to fill the void that the seniors will leave behind. Whether one, two or more games remain for the players that have 0, 14, 20 and 31 on their...

The Big East, built on basketball, is as strong as ever

When Dave Gavitt, the Big East Conference founding commissioner, died in September 2011, the conference he had constructed so masterfully was perceived to poetically be saying goodbye with him. With the departure of three pioneer members of the conference in Syracuse, Connecticut, and Pittsburgh, no longer would Orange, Huskies or Panthers run rampant through the streets of New York City in the middle of every March. The truth is the...
