Cross Country program continues to steer in the right direction

Seton Hall’s men’s and Women’s cross country teams have a lot to hope for, regardless of how results played out at the Big East Championships. On the women’s side, they finished last and had no runner in the top-50 times. Before the meet, Seton Hall had at least multiple top-25 finishers in every event this season. At the beginning of the season, head coach John Moon expected last year’s freshman sensation, Emma Newgarden, to have a...

Baseball will not always reign supreme in the race for wages

Whether it’s hitting fade-away game-winners to win a playoff series or winning back-to-back titles to end a 40-year drought of postseason success, basketball players are steadily gaining notoriety as they come closer to reaping the fruits of labor that baseball players have.

We should get rid of the filibuster in today’s time

One of the biggest issues in America right now is how we deal with social issues, like LGBTQ rights and gun laws. Anyone can type a rant in 280 characters or less. It takes a different type of dedication to call legislators and force them to get a bill passed. I used to be uninformed when it came to politics because the jargon can be off-putting. Here we welcome the filibuster, an antiquated facet of our government that undoubtedly...

Fast start from newcomers boosts outlook for women’s swimming season

The Seton Hall swimming and diving team currently sits at 4-1, with its only loss this season to in-state rival Rutgers.

Two freshmen, Madeline Bachand and Sierra Cripps, have a combined 13 top-three finishes thus far. At the Rutgers Pre-Season Tune-Up, the former finished second in the 500-yard Freestyle with a...

Fair Pay to Play Act potential game changer in college sports

On Monday, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed the “Fair Pay To Play Act”, a bill that would allow college athletes to be paid from endorsement deals. The law was many of years in the works and one of the most polarizing debates in sports. Prospective college athletes will have to wait until 2023 for the bill to go into effect. Not only will the bill play a factor in where the top juniors and sophomores in high school choose to...

Cross country welcomes another freshman sensation

The Seton Hall women’s cross country team was paced by its underclassmen for much of last year, primarily with one freshman who finished first among the Pirates in several meets. Sophomore Emma Newgarden was not expected to lead runners in just her first season. The Staten Island, N.Y. native had endless stamina in the 2018-19 season, as she cruised to first place finishes at the Cappy Anderson Invitational and the NJIT Invitational...
