BRADFORD, PA – With only two blemishes on their record, the Hilbert women’s volleyball team continues to shine on the court. After victories over Mount Aloysius and La Roche College, Hilbert improved to 10-2 overall and 2-0 in AMCC league standings. 
The Hawks took Mount Aloysius in four sets (17-25, 25-14, 25-22, 26-24) to open the AMCC cross-over matches played at Pitt-Bradford.  Jordan Botsford led the Hawks with 12 kills and seven digs as Hilbert fought back from behind in the last two sets to win the match.
Allegra Johnson earned 11 kills, three blocks and seven digs in Hilbert’s three set sweep of La Roche (25-15, 25-22, 29-27).
The Hawks return to the Hafner Rec Center to host Buffalo State College September 25. The volleyball game completes the triple header scheduled that day at Hilbert: soccer on the varsity field at 2pm/4pm against Medaille then 7pm in gym against cross-town Buffalo State.
