ELMIRA, NY - The Hilbert College softball team traveled to Elmira College for their last non-conference game of the 2010 season on April 30. The Soaring Eagles took both games from the Hawks (9-0, 5 innings) (8-2) improving to 15-6. Senior Rachel Parker (Hamburg, NY/Hamburg) led the 9-19 Hawks in game two with her double and stolen base, but the Hawks just couldn’t muster enough offense to keep up with the home team.
