Bradford, PA - The Pitt-Bradford women’s volleyball team took a 3-set AMCC victory (13-25, 16-25, 20-25) over the visiting Hilbert Hawks on October 19, matching the two previous non-conference games played already this season. Bradford maintains their perfect 7-0 AMCC record (19-3 overall) which gives them a firm hold on the top seed heading into play-offs in two weeks. Hilbert sits in 9th place with a 1-5 AMCC record (5-16 overall) hoping to steal a few more victories in their last three matches of the season.

Carole Jones (Bliss, NY/Letchworth) lead the 6-man squad against the Panthers Tuesday night.  The senior had 9 kills off of the 14 assists passed by freshman Shannon Memminger (Amherst, NY/Sweet Home).  
The remaining games on the Hawks volleyball schedule before playoffs begin are all located in western New York which should encourage fans to get out and support your team! October 23rd, the Hawks host Mount Aloysius (1-4, 4-14) before they travel to D’Youville College (0-7, 8-18) on October 27th. The last home game of the season is set for Saturday, October 30th against Penn State Altoona.
The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee is holding a ‘Best Dressed Women’s Volleyball Player’ contest during the October 30th game.  The person who attends the game dressed most appropriately as a women’s volleyball player will be awarded a gift card to Wegman’s. The judges of the contest will be the two seniors being honored that day during Senior Day ceremonies – Amanda Dudek and Carole Jones.
