Youth brings hope for women’s soccer despite overturn

After a lackluster campaign for the Seton Hall women’s soccer program, changes were finally made. Head coach Rick Stainton parted ways with the Pirates without registering a winning season in his five years of strolling the sidelines in South Orange.
