Hamburg, N.Y. – Seven different Hilbert College batters recorded two or more hits in the second game of Thursday’s doubleheader, a 11-3 home softball win over Medaille College. The host Hawks dropped game one 4-2.


Game one saw the visiting Mavericks score one run in the first inning, one in the second, and two in the fifth before holding off a late Hilbert rally en route to the important North Eastern Athletic Conference win. Hilbert’s Meghan Gollaher (Spencerport/Rochester, NY) had three of the Hawks six hits while recording two RBIs in a losing effort. The freshman right-hander (9-9) also pitched all seven innings, allowing seven hits and walking three, while suffering the loss on the mound.


The Hawks brought out the hot bats for game two to back a strong pitching performance by Chrissy Hall (Mt. Mercy/Buffalo, NY) to give the sophomore her first win of the season. Freshmen Michelle Greco (Southwestern/Jamestown, NY) and Kaitlyn Miller (Depew/Depew, NY) had three hits each while Gollaher, Jessy Huntz (Pioneer/Arcade, NY), and Katie Ahearn (Lancaster/Lancaster, NY) had a pair of hits apiece to lead the attack.


Playing in their last regular season home game, seniors Marissa Chini (Lackawanna/Hamburg, NY) and Chandra Walsh (Lake Shore/Blasdell, NY) combined for three hits, two runs, and two RBIs to help the Hawks improve to 10-12 on the year.


Hilbert returns to action this weekend when the Hawks travel Saturday to conference rivals Keuka College (2:00 p.m.) and Cazenovia College on Sunday (noon).
