Swimming and diving looks ahead to spring challenges

The Seton Hall swimming and diving teams will have a holiday hiatus in December before returning to the pool for the second half of their season in the spring. It is a break from competition for the men’s and women’s teams, but the training will not stop. Each team has been able to move past their historic finishes in March’s Big East Championships to become a hungrier, more determined team. The process has not been easy, but it is one they are committed to. “Last year we had a team that was

Postseason absence doesn’t dampen Pirates’ milestone-filled season

After three months of drama and excitement, the Seton Hall volleyball team finished with a 16-15 overall record and 10-8 in the Big East. The Pirates finished fifth in the conference, meaning that unlike last season, they missed the Big East tournament, which features the top four teams in the conference. However, numbers and the final position in the standings does not tell the story of their season. The Pirates played hard from start to finish, consistently being in the mix for a bid to the

For Kenneweg, another postseason shot awaits

The 2014 season was a historic one for Seton Hall’s volleyball team, as the team earned a spot in the NCAA Tournament for the first time in program history. In 2017, it is still widely remembered and talked about. However, only one member of this season’s team is still at Seton Hall to tell the tale. “It was very overwhelming for me as a freshman, I try to bring whatever I can to this team this year,” senior libero Sarah Kenneweg said. “We are excited to have it be spoken about that 2017 team.

Club rugby, a campus mainstay, experiencing competitive success

Most students come into college without having ever played rugby, or even knowing any details about the sport – besides the fact that it’s similar to football, but with no padding. “It’s continuous, if you get tackled, you have to keep going as if it’s one big play,” senior and three-year club rugby player Connor Cadrin said. The Seton Hall Rugby Football Club is one of the most popular club sports on campus. An official team for over four decades, the club currently consists of around 30 memb

Women’s golf makes history in final fall tournament

The Pirates broke out the brooms in Seekonk, Mass. on Oct. 16, claiming the top three individual spots to ensure a first-place finish at the team’s final fall tournament, the Brown Bear Fall Invitational. The event proved to be one to remember, as never before had Seton Hall claimed all three top spots in a tournament. It was the first time since 2015 that even two Pirates claimed the top two spots. Freshman Mia Kness defeated sophomore Maddie Sager for first place in a playoff after the two i

Swimmers aiming to repeat success under Sapp

Last season was a landmark one for Seton Hall’s swimming and diving teams. On a brisk February weekend in Long Island this past winter, the men’s and women’s teams spent four days shattering school records at the Big East Championship. The women’s swimming and diving team set eight school records across a multitude of events, ultimately placing third overall, the best finish in program history. The men’s swimming and diving team kept up with the women and then some, setting seven school records

Improved offense has led to victories for Men’s Soccer team

The Seton Hall men’s soccer team picked up back-to-back regular season victories for the first time since 2013 after defeating Sacred Heart on Sept. 4 and coming back from a 3-0 deficit to defeat Princeton in double overtime on Sept. 7. On Sept. 10, the Pirates defeated Penn 2-1 for their third straight victory, a streak not achieved since 2011. After winning only four games last season and none in 2015, the Pirates have looked promising, especially in the past few contests. The offense has be

OPINION: National League Third Baseman Pool MLB’s Most Talented Players

This article will not mention most of the MLB’s best players. Mike Trout, Bryce Harper, Clayton Kershaw, Carlos Correa and countless others do not come into the discussion of where the best players in the league all reside. That is because collectively, the most talented pool of players in the MLB live at the hot corner in the National League. The biggest discussion when talking about the All-Star roster for the National League, which ultimately lost 2-1 to the American League on July 11 at Ma

OPINION: If You’re Not First, You’re Last – The Importance of College Basketball Summer Recruitment

That’s the famous quote from from Ricky Bobby in Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, isn’t it? Well, it reigns true to NCAA basketball scouts and coaches who are looking for a program’s next big star. Even though the players being recruited will only be rising seniors or even rising juniors, where they play in the month of July can have big implications on their futures. First off, the main reason why this period is so important to college coaches is because of the NCAA’s strict regul

Clippers Edge Giants 2-1 in Extra Innings Thriller

Freehold, NJ – The Freehold Clippers and Ocean Giants were deadlocked in a 1-1 tie at Michael J. Tighe Park in Freehold from the fourth inning on, and it took a walk-off single from Tyler Wisniewski (Toms River, NJ/ Arcadia University, PA) to become the difference maker in a ten-inning contest on Thursday night The two teams were in a tight battle all game long, and strong pitching from both sides left men on base for each team, preventing several runs from coming across the board.  Both pitchi

OPINION: USMNT Must Continue To Fight In Gold Cup Play

Heading into the quarterfinals of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, how should the U.S. Men’s National Team feel about its performance? Not nearly as satisfied as it should be. Head Coach Bruce Arena’s roster moves have been unorthodox for casual soccer fans, with many wondering where the star players were in group play. The answer to that question? They weren’t even dressed. Arena used the most of his six roster moves allowed before the knockout stage of the Gold Cup, adding big names such as Clint Dem

Matrix Bring the Heat to Down Superstars

North Brunswick, NJ – On a hot and humid Tuesday evening at North Brunswick Community Park in North Brunswick, the New Brunswick Matrix kept the heat up, piling on 19 hits in a 16-0 victory over the North River Superstars in eight innings. With the win the Matrix improved on their league-leading record, which now stands at 22-5. Three pitchers were also able to combine for the shutout of the Superstars (7-19), who were only able to muster three hits. The Matrix had nine players record a hit, wi

OPINION: Baby Bombers Give Yankees Newfound Hope

The New York Yankees have commonly seen young ballplayers rise through the ranks and start their illustrious careers take off in pinstripes. Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, and Mariano Rivera all wore a Yankee uniform past their 40th birthdays. With the old core of the Yankees nearly a full year removed, there isn’t so much of a rebuild coming as a rebrand. Who is next big star in the Bronx? Nearly halfway through the 2017 season, and there just might be an answer – it’s the young guns. Several

Offense Carries Clippers to Doubleheader Sweep of Angels

Parsippany, NJ – The Freehold Clippers brought their “A games” to Jannarone Park in Parsippany on Sunday displaying solid pitching and fielding plus a steady offense, and it proved to be a winning formula in both games against the New Jersey Angels, 3-2 and 8-1. It marks the fourth and fifth consecutive victories for the Clippers (15-6), who needed a late rally in the seventh inning of Game One to come from behind and grab a one-run win. They saw all aspects of their game clicking in the Game Tw

Big Fourth Inning Rally Carries Monarchs Past Angels 14-9

Holmdel, NJ – An eight-run fourth inning rally with two outs became a catalyst for the Monmouth Monarchs to defeat the New Jersey Angels 14-9 on Thursday in a seven-inning contest played at Saint John Vianney High School in Holmdel. After the Angels put across eight runs in the first two innings, the Monarchs trailed by as many as eight runs, and were down 8-3 in the bottom of the fourth inning with two outs after a double play was turned. From that point ten consecutive Monarchs batters reache

Clippers Throw Combined Shutouts in Sweep of Clemente

Freehold, NJ – Three pitchers combined for 14 innings of shutout baseball on Thursday at Michael J. Tighe Park in Freehold as the Freehold Clippers shut out Clemente Baseball Club in two seven-inning games, winning Game One 6-0 and Game Two 2-0. Offense continued to come sparingly during the doubleheader, as it did on Tuesday when Clemente swept Freehold. Freehold (7-5) used outstanding efforts on the mound from starting pitchers Dan Murphy (South Amboy, NJ / Rutgers University-Newark) and Matt

Chris Morris becomes third Seton Hall pitcher taken in MLB Draft

Seton Hall pitcher Chris Morris was selected by the Texas Rangers in the 18th round of the MLB’s First-Year Player Draft on Wednesday in Secaucus, N.J., becoming the third Pirate off the board. The Matawan, N.J. native was taken 554th overall, just ten picks after fellow Seton Hall pitcher Shane McCarthy, who was also an 18th round selection, drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals. On Tuesday, Seton Hall’s Zach Schellenger was drafted in the sixth round (191st overall) by the Boston Red Sox. For M

Clippers Rally to Split Doubleheader with Matrix

North Brunswick, NJ – Six unanswered runs by the Freehold Clippers in the second game of a doubleheader with the New Brunswick Matrix allowed them to split Sunday’s contests, falling in Game One 5-4 but winning Game Two 8-4 at North Brunswick Community Park in North Brunswick. The level of competition between the two illustrated why both squads have started their respective seasons strong. The Matrix responded each time the Clippers scored in Game One, and brought home the final run to secure t

OPINION: High School MLB Prospects Should Swing Early And Go Pro

Playing professional baseball is a dream that many young men have, but only few achieve. Even less of those men go on to play in the MLB. Many say that if the talent is there and a player is ready, to go pro as soon as possible, and that’s for several reasons. Financial stability, no chance of injury in college, and a more often direct path to the majors helps the raw, but talent high schooler find his way into the MLB Draft and hopefully one day in the MLB. Others believe that a college degre
