FORT PIERCE, FL – Rutgers University-Camden outscored the Hilbert College softball team 11-0 in game one before cruising to a 12-0 victory in game two on Thursday. The 2006 defending National Champions pinned consecutive losses on Hawks pitcher Meghan Gollaher (Rochester, NY/Spencerport) en route to their eighth and ninth wins of the 2007 season.

Hilbert’s Laura Stranc (West Seneca, NY/West Seneca West) went two for two from the plate in the first game, but it wasn’t enough to rally the Hawks (0-5). Gollaher recorded four strikeouts and allowed just one walk, but gave up nine hits and all 11 runs in the five-inning contest.

In the nightcap, Stranc, Gollaher, and Rachel Parker (Hamburg, NY/Hamburg) garnished the Hawks only hits. Gollaher allowed 13 hits in the loss and whiffed just one Scarlet Raptor (9-7) batter while allowing two walks in the five-inning shortened game.

On the day, the Hawks defense surrendered 12 errors while watching their record fall to 0-6 on the young season. Hilbert will regroup for a scheduled doubleheader against Norwich University (3-3) on Friday.
