ALTOONA, PA – Fresh off their first AMCC win, the Hilbert College women’s basketball team dropped to Penn State Altoona, 51-38 on January 8. The Hawks (1-11, 1-5) dominated the glass, tallying 51 rebounds for the game, but it wasn’t enough for the win against the Lions (4-8, 2-4).

Down by just six at the half, the Hawks battled to stay in the game, but Altoona went on a 10-0 run to start the second half, leaving Hilbert trailing for the reminder of the game.

Natalie Whitman led the Hawks with 9 points and 12 rebounds, and Jenah Labuski chipped in with 8 points and nine rebounds.

For Altoona, Brittany Kaewell had a game-high 11 points and grabbed seven rebounds. Alidia Strouse recorded a double-double, having 10 points and 11 rebounds, while Moira Corrigan added 11 rebounds for the game.

The Hawks will be back in action on Wednesday, January 11 at 8pm when they travel to D’Youville College.
