ERIE, PA – With the weather still impacting the playability of softball diamonds in April, the Hilbert College softball team traveled to Penn State Behrend April 11 for a home AMCC double header. In the early game, the Hawks roared back from an 11-1 second inning deficit only to fall short 16-10. After losing a key player to injury, the Hawks were shut-out in the late 5-inning game 9-0.
