Chris Hoak from the baseball team and Adam Weaver from the men’s volleyball team have been named as the Hilbert College’s Co-Student-Athletes of the Month for March, 2012. 

Hoak (Hamburg, NY/St. Francis) started fifteen games as the Hawks short stop during the first month of the season. He led the team with 19 RBIs and tied for the top honor with 20 hits (out of his 52 appearances at the plate) (.385). Hoak covered 31 bases, earning a perfect 3 for 3 in stolen bases, on his way to scoring 11 runs for Hilbert during their 4-12 start. He was the only player to hit for a cycle, with team-leading four doubles, two triples and the only home run by March 31. Hoak also spent 5.2 innings on the mound for the Hawks. His most productive game at the plate was against Mount Aloysius when he went 2 for 3, sent one hit over the fence in centerfield and earned 5 RBIs in the team’s 11-4 victory. 

Hoak is a Business Administration major.

Weaver (Stow, OH/Archbishop Hoban) almost doubled his kills per set from one month earlier in the season, after playing in all 44 sets for the Hawks in March. The outside hitter averaged 4.09 kills per set securing 180 kills (.290) in the 13 matches played. Weaver outdistanced his team mates by 90 kills at the net. The Hawks finished the month going 3-10 with wins over Wells, Lancaster Bible and Bard College. The sophomore’s most impressive hitting was against Wells College when he finished with 15 kills (.500%). Against Lancaster Bible and The Sages, Weaver earned 28 and 27 kills, respectively, hitting .469 or higher in both matches.  Twice during the month, Weaver was honored as the United Volleyball Conference Player of the Week (March 5) and, for the second time this season, as the AMCC Player of the Week (March 26).

Weaver currently carries a 3.83 cumulative grade point average majoring in Criminal Justice.
