Cross country season ends in success for men and women

The IC4A Coaches Race on Nov. 17 was the last event for the cross country program on the season, as the women’s side placed four competitors in the top-10, while the men placed two in the top-20.

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. The Pirates ended the 2018 season at 2-12-4, including 0-9-0 in conference play, and their goal differential of -24 is a large reason why. Both the offense and the defense struggled...

Women’s basketball success potentially higher than poll ranking

Undersized and overlooked: cross country poised to make noise in the Big East Championship

Despite being one of 30 Div. I programs to have a cross-country program and not track and field, the revitalized Seton Hall men’s and women’s cross country teams look to finish with the highest scores in school history. “This year, we’ll probably finish with the highest score ever for women’s cross country in Seton Hall history,” head coach John Moon boasted. “They’ve been just that good.” The landscape of the women’s team, who...
