Neutral territory favors the Pirates

After playing only four of its 10 matches in front of a home crowd, Seton Hall’s women’s volleyball team dropped two games under .500 after a loss to Princeton University on Tuesday night.

Head coach Allison Yaeger’s squad had to kick off the season with three straight three-match series: one in New York, one back home in South Orange and one in...

Family Affair: Sheppard gets 400th win on legendary father’s 82nd birthday

It was only fitting that senior pitcher Matt Leon was on the bump as Seton Hall recorded the final out of its Big East opener on April 13. The former walk-on helped secure the 4-3 victory that was worth more than just the Pirates’ 13th win of the season – it was coach Rob Sheppard’s 400th of his career. “It was exciting, I mean he’s put in a lot of time for us, so it’s exciting to get that for him,” Leon said. “He gave me a shot to...

Walkden leaves behind legendary legacy at Seton Hall

Sun soaked the 300-plus fans that lined the bleachers and leftfield fence at Mike Sheppard Sr. Field on April 22. Blue and white balloons hung from bleacher corners, posters hung from fences and a mural of the four softball seniors: Alannah Basile, Sara Foster, Alyssa Prukop and Alexis Walkden, rested behind home plate. Perhaps revitalized by the scene, Seton Hall did not come out like a team that had just dropped both ends of a...
