Pirates down but never out in three set win over Xavier

The Seton Hall volleyball team continued its winning ways Friday night, downing Big East rival Xavier three sets to none, on the road, in Cincinnati, Ohio. Despite the convincing final score-line, it did not always seem that the Pirates would continue their recent winning ways. They had to claw their way back from an early deficit, as they trailed early in the first set, 11-6. The Pirates would mount that necessary comeback against...

Pirates offense creates but fails to convert in 1-0 loss

In a game that was truly a defensive chess match, the Seton Hall women’s soccer team was unable to find the back of the net, losing a tough one at home to Villanova on Thursday night, 1-0. The Pirates were hungry for a victory after their most recent Big East contest, on the road against Georgetown, ended in a lopsided 5-0 defeat.

The moment proved to be a special one...

It has been and will continue to be the league’s ultimate problem: the aftermath of concussions and brain injuries.

Nagai settling into role as a leader in 2017

Losing a program-altering golfer like Lloyd Jefferson Go would be a tough blow for any golf team. But, thanks to junior Gen Nagai, Seton Hall is handling it well. The Pirates have only played in two tournaments this 2017-2018 season, but Nagai has already earned a Big East Golfer of the Week Award. His 4-under-par, 71-69-72-212 performance at the Hartford Hawks Invitational on Sept. 18-19 was the sixth best out of 116 individual...
