HAMBURG, NY – For the third time in three weeks, Hilbert College and D’Youville College have squared off on the volleyball court. Tonight’s contest results were in D’Youville’s favor (3-0) with set scores of 30-24, 30-24 and 30-14. The Spartans were dominating at the net pushing their overall record to 9-4 and 2-1 in the NECVA West division. 

Junior RJ Sykora (Stow, OH/Stow-Munroe Falls) lead Hilbertwith 5 kills and 12 digs as well as 2 service aces. As a team, Hilbert positioned themselves for 7 blocks, but D’Youville was much more efficient in their hitting (54 kills to Hilbert’s 16) and rally blocking preventing the ball from leaving Hilbert’s side of the floor. The Spartans had 4 players get 9 or more kills (Chris Temple – 10; Jeremy Sajdak – 10; Brent Peters – 9 (Warsaw) and Todd Potter – 9 (Kenmore East). Vincent Amico (Buffalo, NY/Bishop Timon-St. Jude) passed for 12 assists for the Hawks, while JJ Senozetnik (Eden, NY/Eden) ran D’Youville’s offense with 48 assists.
Hilbert travels this Saturday to Stevenson University in MD (weather permitting) for a tri-match against NJCU and Stevenson at 2 and 4 pm. These game times are changed from the original schedule.
