Huntzinger confidently overcoming challenges

For a freshman to jump from backup to starter within a year is an impressive feat on its own, but to do so while also changing positions is even more applaudable. Jerry Huntzinger saw the field nine times for the Seton Hall baseball team last season and featured heavily as the team’s back-up catcher. He hit .111 in nine at bats and managed just four RBIs in 2018, but those statistics would have never foreseen the efficiency and...

Seton Hall finishes in sixth place at Loyola Intercollegiate

Seton Hall had plenty to deal with weather-wise last week, as imminent snowfall, heavy wind and sleet hit the South Orange area.

Baseball prepares for life away from home

With their home ballpark undergoing renovations, the Pirates will take their show on the road for the duration of the year as they try to build on a 2018 season that nearly...

Inja Butina: A Croatian Dynamo

SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. – Inja Butina is one-of-a-kind, cut from a chequy cloth. She does not strut around or stand out in those monotonous moments between her last and next time on the basketball court. Instead, she seems restless, as if the seconds tick away in her head with a faint echo. Tick, tick, tick. When her sneakers touch the wooden floor, however, Butina becomes Zen; a compelling spectacle of skill and unending desire to...
