The Hilbert College softball team dropped a pair of games to the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford on April 13, 2009. Bradford topped Hilbert 7-4 and 18-1. The Hawk’s record falls to 4-19 overall and 0-8 in AMCC play.
In game 1, the affair was tied 4-4 after four innings. The game would stay tied until the six, when Bradford would plate three runs to take a 7-4 advantage. The Hawks could not muster any runs in the top of the seventh, and the Bobcats would take the game.
Rachel Parker (Hamburg, NY/Hamburg) led the Hawks offense, going 3-4 on the game, and recording 3 RBIs.
In game 2, the Hawks could only manage four hits, and could not bring a runner home. Sarah Collins (Milroy, PA/Indian Valley) recorded the lone RBI for the Hawks.
Hilbert is back in action April 14, when they travel to rival Medialle College.
