Painesville, Ohio –  Hilbert College split with Lake Erie College yesterday afternoon in women’s NCAA Division III softball action. The visiting Hawks won the first game 5-4 and lost to the Storm in game two by a score of 7-2. 

In the first game, Hilbert jumped out to a 2-0 lead after two innings and took a 3-1 advantage heading into the bottom of the sixth. After a scoreless seventh in the first extra inning the Hawks registered two runs from Michelle Greco (Southwestern/Jamestown, NY), and held Lake Erie to one. The Hawks ended in a 5-4 extra-inning victory over Lake Erie.     

In game two, Elizabeth Chamberlain came through for the Storm and responded with a 3-for-4 performance, and pitched six innings of four-hit ball to lead the Storm to a 7-2 win over the visiting Hawks.
