Allender developing into consistent presence

The Allender family is not unaccustomed to the game of softball, especially playing it in a blue and white uniform at the collegiate level. Baylee Allender was raised by a former Creighton Bluejay in her mother, Teir and watched her older sister Kelsey follow suit as she went on to play for Creighton between 2013 and ‘16. Playing softball in Omaha, Nebraska seemed almost inevitable for Baylee as well, but the sophomore infielder chose...

It is easy to get lost in transition. Change is difficult and being able to cope with a new environment in a swift manner is an impressive accomplishment. However, progressing into that new period, and continually breaking down the boundaries is what separates the good from the great – and Mia Kness is great. Before her two individual titles and becoming the second golfer in program history to do so, and before even coming to Seton...

The duo arrived together in 2015-16 on a team which went 8-13 the previous year. Fajnorova slid into a singles role immediately, whereas Kangwa saw action in only three matches, but each player has...

Freshman infielder Clyde spurred by big shoes to fill

Seton Hall’s baseball team knew that it would have to adjust in both location and in replacing the talent that they lost en route to a runner-up finish in the Big East. Reliable hitters like breakout infielder Rob Dadona, catcher Mike Alescio, rightfielder Ryan Ramiz and shortstop Al Molina all had batting averages above .300.

‘Savage Season’ shows off performance and personality of softball’s outfield

Head coach Paige Smith recognizes the outgoing personalities of her outfield. Although she says she feels like a “grandma” when listening to the jokes of her outfielders, she enjoys how they act as a goofy team outside the softball field. On the field, however, they know how to get in the zone. This year, for the outfielders, the 2019 campaign has been dubbed “Savage Season.” The predecessor of this year’s motto was “Everything is...

McKnight to take on prominent role in first NCAA Tournament appearance

Two years ago, Quincy McKnight made the decision to venture out of his home state for the first time in his basketball career. Leaving a school where he was the undisputed star of the team to take a step up in competition was a risk, but a necessary one for McKnight to get a chance at opportunities like the one he will have when Seton Hall takes the floor on Thursday night. The 2018-19 season has been one of firsts for McKnight. After...
