MYRTLE BEACH, SC – Mount Aloysius College opened the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) softball portion of their schedule with a 7-5, 9-0 sweep of Hilbert College. Friday’s double-header closes the Hilbert’s week at the Myrtle Beach Snowbird Tournament and sends the Hawks back to Western, NY at 1-9, 0-2.

In the opener, Hilbert’s Kelly Goodwin (Niagara Falls, NY/Niagara Falls) and Rachel Parker (Hamburg, NY/Hamburg) each went three for four with a double and RBI. Teammate Carrie Sisson (Elma, NY/Mt. Mercy) provided two hits and an RBI, but lost the game on the mound.

Game two’s five-inning contest saw the Mounties (8-5, 2-0) score early and often as the Hawks struggled to find ways to cross the plate. Amanda Ratajczak (Cheektowaga, NY/Maryvale) doubled and Goodwin singled, but it wasn’t enough as Sisson suffered her third straight loss.

Hilbert is next scheduled to play a double-header at Elmira College on Monday, March 24th beginning at 3:00 pm.
