HAMBURG, NYThe Athletics Department at Hilbert College will welcome back the men’s soccer, women’s soccer and women’s volleyball teams who return early to campus in preparation for their fall pre-season training sessions. All three squads must attend a 4 pm mandatory compliance meeting Sunday, August 21 in order to be eligible for their first day of practice.
