HAMBURG, NY – Keuka College made a clean sweep of their three matches this season against Hilbert College in women’s volleyball. The Storm’s Devan Curtis and Paige Golden each finished with 8 kills but it was Brittany Smyder who led the visitors in hitting percentage (0.353) to take a 3-0 victory September 26. Hilbert drops to 2-7 with the non-conference loss to Keuka who is on a roll this season winning their 7th game in 10 starts.

Hilbert played a competitive first and third set, losing both by the score of 25-22. But in their second and most important set to play, the Hawks came out flat and surrendered an 8 point lead which they never recovered from (25-14).

Freshman Jordan Botsford finished with 7 kills, one more than sophomore Chelsea Reischuck. Sweet Home’s Shannon Memminger earned three aces and 19 assists.

The Hawks next match is against cross town, and AMCC rival Medaille College in North Buffalo. Game time is scheduled for 7pm September 28 in the Sullivan Center.
