BUFFALO, NY – The Medaille College men’s volleyball team picked up their fifth win in their last seven matches with a 3-0 (30-8, 30-19, 30-21) win over visiting Hilbert College on Tuesday night. The loss drops the Hawks to 1-7, 0-4 on the season while the Mavericks improve to 6-8, 3-0.

Hilbert’s Luke Whelan (Derby, NY/Lake Shore) tied a match high with eight kills while contributing three digs and a block. Sean Carroll (Henrietta, NY/Rush-Henrietta) dished out 13 assists to go along with three digs and an ace for the Hawks, who have now lost to Mavs for the second time this season.

Hilbert will look to regroup this Saturday when they travel to SUNY New Paltz where they’ll face the host Hawks at 1:00 PM before squaring-off against Polytechnic University at 3:00 PM.
