Senior column: Don’t dwell on what you missed

Photo courtesy of Alyssa Schirm In high school, I was a part of every club under the sun and somehow always found myself wanting to be involved in more. I’ve spent this past semester beating myself up for not joining more clubs, attending more events and generally just not giving myself the college experience I always wanted. Chalk...

At the beginning of the season, head coach John Moon expected last year’s freshman sensation, Emma Newgarden, to have a...

Myles Powell, Alexis Lewis receive weekly honors

The Seton Hall men’s and women’s have been off to a hot start for the 2019-20 season. Myles Powell is naturally leading the way on the men’s side. On the women’s side, it is not as clear.

Underappreciated McKnight sets the tone for Seton Hall

Seton Hall’s talent has the nation’s attention – the Pirates are ranked 12th in the country and Myles Powell is a preseason All-American. But while he won’t make the highlight reel, Seton Hall would not be where they are without Quincy McKnight at the point.
