FORT PIERCE, FL – Norwich University (5-3) picked up a pair of wins over the Hilbert College softball team on Friday winning 7-0 and 10-2 in Fort Pierce, Florida. The doubleheader defeat drops the Hawks to 0-8 on the season.

Hilbert’s Meghan Gollaher (Rochester, NY/Spencerport) was charged with both losses after allowing 21 hits on the afternoon. The righty issued just four walks and picked up two strikeouts, both in the first game.

Gollaher went two for three from the plate in game one with Sarah Collins (Lewiston, PA/Indian Valley), and Kelly Goodwin (Niagara Falls, NY/Niagara Falls) also adding hits.

In the second contest, Hilbert’s Rachel Parker (Hamburg, NY/Hamburg) provided two hits and a stolen base. Kaitlyn Rudenski (North East, PA/North East) collected a hit and a stolen base, and Goodwin singled and scored a run.

Hilbert’s originally scheduled doubleheader at Nazareth College on March 20th is postponed. The Hawks will next prepare for their Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) opener on Saturday, March 24th.
