Tennis ready for major turnover after cut-short season

On a tight-knit squad of eight players, the Seton Hall tennis team will graduate five. Out of all the programs at the school, this is by far the highest turnover rate. Mekeila Erspamer, Minja Gligic, Anniek Jansen, Michal Matson and Melody Taal all had their undergraduate careers ended early by COVID-19. Now, if all choose to leave and not express an extra year of eligibility, the tennis team will look much different next season....

In a perfect world, the Seton Hall women’s and men’s golf teams would be competing at the Big East Championship this weekend and next weekend, respectively. However, as is well known, that plan was derailed due to season cancellations. For both programs, a chance to build upon a successful fall season has been denied. The women, led by Natalie Desjardins, and the men, led by Clay White, each had formidable rosters and looked to excel...

By the numbers: Bryce Aiken, Seton Hall’s new graduate transfer

Harvard graduate transfer Bryce Aiken is returning to New Jersey next season, and he will finally don the blue and white of Seton Hall.

The forgotten basketball recruiting class of 2000

The 2014 Seton Hall men’s basketball recruiting class will never be forgotten. Getting ready for his fifth season as head coach, Kevin Willard made a splash. He was able to muster up a top-20 recruiting class according to 247Sports, which included a 5-star in Isaiah Whitehead. Not too shabby either was another 4-star center by the name of Angel Delgado and a few other medium-rated guys in Khadeen Carrington, Desi Rodriguez, Ishmael...

Senior Spotlight: consistency marks baseball’s quintet

After playing their junior seasons away from home due to the construction of Mike Sheppard, Sr. Stadium at Owen T. Carroll Field, the Seton Hall baseball team’s seniors had the 2020 season vanish into thin air due to COVID-19. The Pirates started the 2020 season with 13 games on the road, going 5-8 over that stretch. Then, on March 11, the first day without in-person classes for Seton Hall students, the field was christened with a...

Adama Sanogo at the forefront of Seton Hall’s recruiting efforts as he nears decision

On Aug. 16, 2013, Top 100 recruit Angel Delgado decided to take his talents from the Patrick School in local Hillside, N.J. to Seton Hall. The end result?

Could Adama Sanogo be the next Top 100 Patrick School big man to follow in Delgado’s footsteps? A four-star recruit, No. 66 player in his class...

Senior Spotlight: softball leaves behind impressive resume

Despite an NCAA Committee ruling on Monday afternoon that spring sport athletes will receive an extra year of eligibility due to a lost season under COVID-19 scares, there is still a rightfully sentimental feeling surrounding senior players who had their swan songs ripped out from under their feet. Graduating college is a monumental step in life. For most athletes, this means the end of a career and an official shift into the working...
