There were certainly expectations for a few players, such as Myles Powell and Michael Nzei, to rise up and perform this season, but the Pirates have seen a...

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.
