Swimming and diving looks ahead to spring challenges

The Seton Hall swimming and diving teams will have a holiday hiatus in December before returning to the pool for the second half of their season in the spring. It is a break from competition for the men’s and women’s teams, but the training will not stop. Each team has been able to move past their historic finishes in March’s Big East Championships to become a hungrier, more determined team. The process has not been easy, but it is...

Postseason absence doesn’t dampen Pirates’ milestone-filled season

After three months of drama and excitement, the Seton Hall volleyball team finished with a 16-15 overall record and 10-8 in the Big East. The Pirates finished fifth in the conference, meaning that unlike last season, they missed the Big East tournament, which features the top four teams in the conference. However, numbers and the final position in the standings does not tell the story of their season. The Pirates played hard from...

For Kenneweg, another postseason shot awaits

The 2014 season was a historic one for Seton Hall’s volleyball team, as the team earned a spot in the NCAA Tournament for the first time in program history. In 2017, it is still widely remembered and talked about. However, only one member of this season’s team is still at Seton Hall to tell the tale. “It was very overwhelming for me as a freshman, I try to bring whatever I can to this team this year,” senior libero Sarah Kenneweg...

Club rugby, a campus mainstay, experiencing competitive success

Most students come into college without having ever played rugby, or even knowing any details about the sport – besides the fact that it’s similar to football, but with no padding. “It’s continuous, if you get tackled, you have to keep going as if it’s one big play,” senior and three-year club rugby player Connor Cadrin said. The Seton Hall Rugby Football Club is one of the most popular club sports on campus. An official team for over...

Jemele Hill situation puts ESPN in tough position

When athletes, or media personalities, enter politics into the equation, it’s often a toxic mix. Take the case of Colin Kaepernick. His decision to kneel during the National Anthem was derived from his personal beliefs regarding politics in the United States. Now he is seeing repercussions from that as no NFL teams will pick him up. Now, ESPN reporter Jemele Hill is in hot water for going on a political Twitter rant. A co-anchor of...

NBA needs to do more to protect its players

Patrick Beverley of the Houston Rockets was fined $25,000 after having an altercation with a fan when the Rockets lost at Oklahoma City in Game 3 of the First Round of the NBA Playoffs on April 21. This may be something that seems pretty run-of-the-mill, and could have been something that more or less blew over in the eyes of the media after the investigation regarding Beverley’s altercation following the game. However, when Beverley...

SHU softball dons gold laces for pediatric cancer

While Seton Hall softball was able to pick up a dramatic walk-off victory over Hofstra University on April 11 at Mike Sheppard, Sr. Field, there was a much bigger cause that each team was playing for than the names on their uniforms. The game was also supporting the Go4theGoal Foundation with Lace Up 4 Pediatric Cancer. Both teams donned gold laces on their cleats during the game, and programs with Go4theGoal’s mission were also...
