Pirates Defeat Hoyas in straight sets

The Seton Hall volleyball team got back in the win column tonight with a straight set win over Georgetown, dispatching the Hoyas 25-13, 25-18, 25-19, a much needed rebound after a straight set loss to Creighton Saturday night. Tonight’s win was a true team effort, with no one player dominating the scoring for the Pirates. Steady senior leader Haylee Gasser led the team with nine kills as she usually does, but surprisingly it wasn’t...

Sport prowess runs in Seton Hall recruit’s blood

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team landed a big-time recruit in late September, as McKenna Minter committed to the Pirates.

During his tenure there, Mike was regarded as one of the better safeties in the league, so athletic blood runs in the...

Seton Hall firmly in the mix for Earl Timberlake as his recruitment winds down

From North Carolina to Florida and Louisville, Timberlake has been recruited by some of the country’s top programs. Instead of falling victim to the allure of big-name...

Expectations are high for revamped tennis roster

After losing their No. 1, Anicka Fajnorova, head coach Kevin McGlynn had to reorder his lineup this season. With three new players on the roster combined with three players that will be seniors this upcoming spring, McGlynn...

Men’s soccer thriving at home under Lindberg’s leadership

Owen T. Carroll Field has been friendly to the Seton Hall men’s soccer team since Andreas Lindberg took over in 2018. Under Lindberg’s leadership, the Pirates have consistently defended their home pitch – something that was lacking before Lindberg arrived from LIU Post. From 2016-17 under coach Gerson Echeverry, Seton Hall went 7-7-3 playing in South Orange. With Lindberg calling the shots, that record has flipped in the Pirates’...

College football shockingly predictable at halfway mark

The headline this year in college football is to expect the expected. A sport typically pigeonholed as being...

Mets managerial opening destined to be filled by newcomer

The New York Mets have the best managerial opening in Major League Baseball. The little brother of New York has one of the most formidable teams in all of baseball despite missing out on the playoffs the past three seasons and being the perennial laughingstock of baseball. Even though a first-half record of 40-50 turned into an 86-76 finish and the Mets finished just three games outside of the playoffs, second year manager Mickey...

Pirates snatch crucial three points in home opener

The Seton Hall men’s soccer team defeated DePaul 2-1 on Saturday night in a nail biter decided by Stephen Elias’ 85th minute goal. Elias, the leading goal scorer and captain for the Pirates, notched his fourth of the season when he was the first to react to the second bounce off a corner kick. “Those second balls are the most dangerous balls in soccer,” Elias said. “That’s when the team shut off right there and then. The ball back in...

Swimming and Diving eager to return to championship caliber levels

In the Big East championships last year, respectively, the men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams are aiming to improve their performances after historical seasons. The men, who took the Big East crown in 2018 to become back-to-back conference champions have only eight swimmers on the roster from their championship unit. That’s the same amount of freshman who will race for the first time this year for the Pirates. The surplus of...

Despite grueling summer schedule, Yocco emerges as star for Pirates

Cross country is arguably the least publicized sport at Seton Hall but also among the most difficult because of its grueling schedule. While meets take place with little fanfare, long training runs and the need to stay in top physical condition in addition, to keeping up with homework and classes puts cross country’s difficulty on par with any other Seton Hall sport. For senior cross-country runner Kassi Yocco, this difficulty was...
