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...

Pirates strike early but fall in promising season opener

The Seton Hall women’s soccer team was defeated by Loyola University Maryland, 2-1, after Loyola found the back of the net in the first extra time period. Seton Hall had not played an extra time game in all last year, which shows the hopeful improvement under coach Ciara Crinion.

However, many believe that it is time to give up on tradition for the sake of improving the league’s overall quality of play. One of the...

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. The Pirates ended the 2018 season at 2-12-4, including 0-9-0 in conference play, and their goal differential of -24 is a large reason why. Both the offense and the defense struggled...
