ROCHESTER, NY – The women’s volleyball team competed in a tri-match at St. John Fisher College on Saturday, October 10 and came away with a split going 1-1 for the day. Coach Amanda Logue is pleased with her team’s growth and development this year and the victory over Cazenovia College is an example of the improvement. 

Hilbert played St. John Fisher to start the day off and ended up losing to the Cardinals by set scores of 11-25, 14-25, 13-25. Hitting errors seemed to be the problem against Fisher although Dale Jonathan (Basom, NY/Akron)  lead the Hawks with 9 assists that match. Later in the afternoon, the team bounced back and showed determination with their own 3-set victory over Cazenovia, a team they lost to earlier in the season (3-1). The Caz scores were 25-17, 25-16, and 25-18.  As a team Hilbert had 28 kills and only 10 hitting errors resulting in the win.  Junior Carole Jones (Bliss, NY/Letchworth) lead the hitters with 9 kills, and again, Jonathan had an impressive match with 24 assists.  Another bright stat was freshman Devan Jonathan's (Akron)  7 service aces and freshman Rachel Kwiatkowski's (West Seneca, NY/Orchard Park) 9 digs.
On Tuesday, October 13, the Hawks play host to Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference member – University of Pittsburgh at Bradford. Game time is set for 7pm. Statistics will be posted Tuesday night following this home match.
