ALTOONA, PA – The Hilbert College women’s volleyball team traveled to Penn State Altoona on Saturday, October 3 for their third Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) game in a week. Altoona (10-9, 3-0) retains their #1 rank in the AMCC conference with the victory with set scores of: 25-13, 25-8, 25-16. Hilbert drops to 2-9 and 0-3 in AMCC play.

 
Coach Amanda Logue is still optimistic with her team’s continued growth and development this season. “We are still working with our lineup and moving players around to find the right combination and I believe the results will change soon.” 
Freshman Devan Jonathan (Basom, NY/Akron) led the team with 4 kills while her sophomore sister Dale had 3 assists. Junior Erica Page (Angola, NY/Lake Shore) continues to move around the court as the libero and she lead the team with 3 digs in the 3 set match.
The Hawks play next on Tuesday, October 6th when they travel to Buffalo State for a 7 pm game. Then two days later, they travel to Alfred University for another 7 pm. Their last road game this week will be at St. John Fisher College for a tri-match with Fisher and Cazenovia College, a program the team has played once already this year. In this game, Coach Logue will be looking for the growth and improvements to really shine through.
