HAMBURG, N.Y. – Freshman Robert Gerhard (Angola, NY/Lake Shore) led the Hilbert College men’s volleyball team with six kills and seven assisted blocks, but it wasn’t enough as the Hawks fell in three straight sets, 30-24, 30-13, 30-22, to D’Youville College.  The loss drops Hilbert to 1-13 overall, and 0-8 in North Eastern Collegiate Volleyball Association (NECVA) play.


In his final home match, senior setter Tom Cone (Rapid City, SD/Lincoln) led the Hawks with 11 assists.  Senior Steve Peet (West Seneca, NY/West Seneca West), also playing in his last home game, added a team-high seven digs.  Sophomore outside hitter Jess Eger (Bradford, PA/Bradford) added four kills and a .667 hitting percentage for Hilbert.


The Hilbert College men’s volleyball team travels to Nazareth College for the NECVA West Play-In match on Tues., March 15.  The start time of the match has yet to be determined.
