Women’s golf has lofty goals for spring season

The  women’s   golf  team  and coach Natalie Desjardins enter the spring with high expectations. The team is seasoned and experienced, due in large part to the production of its four seniors, Lizzie Win, Maddie Sager, Sammie Staudt and Carolina  Ronchel-Salas. Desjardins came to Seton Hall in 2017 from LIU Brooklyn, arriving in South Orange a year after three of her seniors did. Desjardins’ defection from LIU spurred Ronchel- Salas to...

Kobe Bryant leaves incredible legacies on and off the court

My father can still recall it despite the passage of over 50 years. He was 9-years-old and walking home from school when a woman informed him that President Kennedy had died. My mother still vividly remembers what she was doing when she heard John Lennon was assassinated. Moments like Kennedy and Lennon’s untimely deaths remain indelible in the minds of nearly everyone who was alive at the time. While I listened to my parents’...

Success from beyond the arc fuels Pirates’ winning streak

Aging men in barber shops talk about a time when basketball was played in the paint. Offenses revolved around the center and the two hand set shot and the “skyhook” were king. The three-point shot did not exist yet and taking a long-range shot was unheard of. These old tales seem crazy to young basketball fans in 2020. Three-pointers are a crucial element of the modern game, and players like Steph Curry, Kyle Korver and Ray Allen have...

The season-ending win capped off a rebuilding year for the Pirates, who finished 8-24, including 3-15 in...

Transfers hope to play key roles for women’s basketball in 2019

Changing schools is a momentous decision for any student, as starting at a new school is a rough adjustment for students at any age, be it kindergarten or graduate school. For an NCAA student athlete, the decision to transfer schools comes with the added factor of having to sit out a year, so the perfect fit needs to be found to prevent a second transfer and another dormant season. Four members of Seton Hall women’s basketball made...

Seton Hall loses to Villanova, misses out on postseason

The Seton Hall men’s soccer team lost a heartbreaker tonight 1-0 to the visiting Villanova Wildcats, conceding a set piece goal in the 54th minute to Villanova’s Shane Bradley. The loss spoils what could have been a doubly special senior night. Not only was tonight the last game at Owen T. Carroll field for the program’s eight seniors, but it had a chance to be memorable due to the fact that the Pirates could have clinched a Big East...

Volleyball underclassmen cause for optimism during rebuilding year

The 2019 season for Seton Hall women’s volleyball can generously be described as a rebuilding year.

The Pirates have to win all six remaining conference gamesand hope the conference’s upper half team struggle in order to be one of the four squads to qualify for the Big East tournament. While their...

Pirates fall to Xavier despite stellar performance from McKenzie

The road woes for Seton Hall’s men’s soccer team continued tonight as the Pirates fell to Xavier 2-1.

Versatility of LaClair, Cripps crucial in hot start for men’s, women’s swimming

The men’s swimming and diving team captured back-to-back Big East championships in 2017 and 2018, and while not as successful when compared to the men, the women have finished as high as third in the Big East. So far in 2019, this success has continued. The men’s team currently stands at 4-0 and the women are 4-1. The men’s team soundly thrashed Rider 164-129 on Oct. 5 and beat the Broncs again the following week in New Brunswick....

Pirates Defeat Hoyas in straight sets

The Seton Hall volleyball team got back in the win column tonight with a straight set win over Georgetown, dispatching the Hoyas 25-13, 25-18, 25-19, a much needed rebound after a straight set loss to Creighton Saturday night. Tonight’s win was a true team effort, with no one player dominating the scoring for the Pirates. Steady senior leader Haylee Gasser led the team with nine kills as she usually does, but surprisingly it wasn’t...
