Former Seton Hall great has number retired by Jackals

Isaac Pavlik wore the number 7 with the New Jersey Jackals, which was retired by the independent baseball franchise last Thursday. He is now only one of five players to have his number retired by the organization, including Hall of Fame member Yogi Berra.

Crinion emphasizes empowerment to women’s soccer

Change means a new approach, and as the new head coach for the women’s soccer team, Ciara Crinion understands that her ideas may not be the same as former coach Rick Stainton’s. Each coach has a different belief of how to conduct his or her program, and that is why Crinion is fully aware of her culture shock to the team. “Two coaches are not the same, so we bring in with different ideas a different kind of mentality and we are looking...

2019 playoff race proves MLB made right call adding second wild card

Throughout the years, Major League Baseball’s playoff system has undergone numerous tweaks.

The single-tier playoff format survived expansion in 1961-62 and remained intact until 1969, when the championship series between east and west division champions in...

New recruiting class filled with lethal scorers for women’s basketball

Contributing to the budding talent will be the 2019 recruiting class to replace the departing seniors. This year’s recruiting class under Head Coach Tony Bozzella features multiple lethal scorers from their respective high schools. The group is...

Thompson launches clothing line ‘Aspire’

Baseball is a game of chess. Each pitch in every at-bat is a different way to attack the opposing team. Despite it taking a lot of physical skill to be a prominent player in the sport, the mental game is what widens the gap of the competition. As a pitcher, Noah Thompson always has to be innovative when facing a hitter. The junior is already intimidating enough when on the mound, and when using the correct sequence of pitches, he can...

Kness credits team for individual success

It is easy to get lost in transition. Change is difficult and being able to cope with a new environment in a swift manner is an impressive accomplishment. However, progressing into that new period, and continually breaking down the boundaries is what separates the good from the great – and Mia Kness is great. Before her two individual titles and becoming the second golfer in program history to do so, and before even coming to Seton...

Women of WrestleMania steal the Show of Shows

For the first time in history, WrestleMania featured women as the main event in WWE’s most marquee stage of the year. It was ironic though, as “The Man” captured the titles on the line and ended the 35th edition of the pay-per-view event in front of a capacity crowd at MetLife Stadium. Although Becky Lynch pinned Ronda Rousey to defeat her and Charlotte Flair in a winner-take-all Triple Threat match for the Raw and Smackdown Women’s...

‘Savage Season’ shows off performance and personality of softball’s outfield

Head coach Paige Smith recognizes the outgoing personalities of her outfield. Although she says she feels like a “grandma” when listening to the jokes of her outfielders, she enjoys how they act as a goofy team outside the softball field. On the field, however, they know how to get in the zone. This year, for the outfielders, the 2019 campaign has been dubbed “Savage Season.” The predecessor of this year’s motto was “Everything is...
