BUFFALO, NY – D’Youville College used a 25 point run to slam the door shut on Hilbert College having any hope in knocking off the #9 team in NCAA Division III men's volleyball. In a hard fought match, the Hawks eventually fell in three games (30-11, 30-5, 30-17) to the host Spartans. D’Youville (4-2, 2-0) used a 19 point service run by Andy Belden to secure the second game.

For the visiting Hawks (0-3, 0-3 NECVA), freshman Sean Carroll (Henrietta, NY/Rush-Henrietta) recorded three kills while adding nine assists and five digs. Sophomore teammate Luke Whelan (Derby, NY/Lake Shore) finished the night with two aces and three blocks.

The Hawks hit the hardwood again when they travel to Boston, MA to participate in a tournament held at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The Hawks start play on Friday, February 10th at 5:00 pm.
