The Hilbert College women’s basketball team fell to Medaille College in the season finale by a score of 63-20. The Hawks finish the season 0-25 overall and 0-19 in AMCC play. Before the game, Hilbert honored the team’s lone senior Kelly Goodwin (Niagara Falls, NY/Niagara Falls).

The Mavericks jumped out to a 12-2 lead over the first 6:20 of the half. The Hawks were never able to break the Mavericks momentum, and Medaille led 40-9 at the half.

The Hawks hit just 3-20 from the field in the first half. Medaille shot 15-32 in the opening stanza.

In the second half, the Hawks were able to control the pace of the game a bit more, and held the Mavericks to 23 points. But Hilbert could only manage 11 points of their own.

Julie Bossard (Arkport, NY/Canisteo-Greenwood) led the Hawks with 10 points.
