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...

Shadeen Samuels is a force. The forward has evolved from a productive role player in her first two years with the women’s basketball program to a can’t-miss supertsar. As a junior, Shadeen Samuels evolved into one of the most impactful players in the Big East. Sarah Yenesel/Photography Editor After winning four state championships and being named a member of USA Today’s New York first Team All-State, Samuels provided valuable minutes...

‘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...

Seton Hall needs to work on their security

Safety should be a top priority, if not the highest priority for a college campus. With thousands of students in the area every day, the potential for disaster without the correct security is heightened. If we are unaware of who a certain person is coming through the gates at Seton Hall, we do not know the dangers they could bring with them. Kiera Alexander/Asst. Photography Editor Seton Hall emphasizes their security. Just not in the...

Combine performances are overvalued in evaluations

The NFL combine is the most overrated, nitpicked and overemphasized event in all of sports. The idea of scouting a player’s skill set heavily dependent on 40-yard-dashes and shuttle runs is bewildering. Game film speaks for itself on how a player performs, not how many inches their vertical jump is. Year after year, teams fall in love with the “workout warriors” and the players who are the epitome of an elite athlete at the combine....
