Quincy McKnight, Jared Rhoden and Sandro Mamukelashvili became...

Abby Wingo and her traveling fan group

There are few things more wholesome than the excite- ment of parents watching and cheering on their kids from the sidelines. The atmosphere of youth sports games is dictated by father-coaches yelling and stereotypical soccer moms devoting their time to be the team mascot. Unfortunately, as the kids grow older and they begin to filter out by who has the potential to play in college and who does not, these age- old tropes retire from...

Softball’s 2019 shortcomings are driving force to 2020 motivation

Seton Hall softball’s 2019 shortcomings are driving force to 2020 motivation. Almost every student has felt the heartbreak of finishing a course with an 89 or missing out on an A by a tenth of a percentage point. That same heartbreak was multiplied tenfold for the Seton Hall softball team last year when they missed out on a place in the Big East tournament by .003. For the exiting seniors, it was a sour note to end their college...

Offseason is scouting season for Lindberg and men’s soccer coaching staff

A college coach’s job is never over even if their respective sport is in the offseason. “It was a few nights in Athens with just my wife only for vacation,” coach Andreas Lindberg said recalling his holiday season festivities. Strictly vacation trips are hard to come by for coach Lindberg and his staff as they are always on the road scouting players and attending conferences. He had only just gotten back to campus a few days ago after...

Lifelong friendships are a myth, mostly

Reflecting on the people you surrounded yourself with throughout your childhood can be an eye-opening experience. Photo via Wikimedia Commons Naturally, the kids I grew up with in my hometown were my close friends, and my neighbor was my best friend because we always walked home together after school. We saw each other for soccer practices or to hang out, and I would have sworn to you that those were going to be my friends for life....

Seton Hall survives late Xavier surge for fifth consecutive win

Seton Hall toppled Xavier by a final score of 83-71 to extend its winning streak to five in Cincinnati on Wednesday night. With the win, Seton Hall not only snapped Xavier’s 13-game home winning streak, but the Pirates remain perfect in Big East play and improve to 3-0 in conference play for only the fourth time in program history and the first time since the 2017-18 season. An initially slow start to the night quickly turned...

Seton Hall survives Prairie View A&M to close out non-conference play

The opening atmosphere Sunday afternoon at the Prudential Center was lackadaisical at best, but by the end of Seton Hall’s come-from-behind 75-55 victory over Prairie View, every person in Pirate blue was on their feet applauding the efforts of their team. After pulling off what was made out to be an impossible victory over No. 7 Maryland on Thursday night, the Pirates looked devoid of energy and urgency to open the first half the...

Seton Hall suffers epic collapse in Battle 4 Atlantis loss to Oregon

A star-studded performance from Myles Powell was simply not enough for Seton Hall to take down No. 11 Oregon in the Battle 4 Atlantis on Thanksgiving eve. After playing well for most of the night, Seton Hall’s offense disappeared and the Pirates allowed Oregon to end the game on a 20-6 run that resulted in a 19-point comeback and 71-69 win for the Ducks. Up 54-37 following a barrage of threes from Powell, it looked like Seton Hall had...

McKenzie caps off senior year with BIG EAST honors

It was an electric Friday night match-up against Army West Point in New York that got the ball rolling for the Englishman’s collegiate soccer career at Seton Hall a year ago in August. “One memory that does stick out in my mind would be my first ever competitive game with Seton Hall,” senior forward Carlton McKenzie said. McKenzie recalls the Army fans’ section’s usual rowdiness and the stands being closer to the players than he was...

Early-season stats look promising for women’s basketball team

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team is off to a hot start this year, holding Virginia Commonwealth University to just 33 points and narrowly losing by two points to Princeton at Walsh Gymnasium. Comparatively, and given that there is a small sample size to pull from at this point in the season, the Pirates are yet to reach the statistical levels they achieved last year. However, their current marks are nearly hitting the same...
