The Hilbert College women’s basketball team will enter their 2003-04 season with high hopes of returning to the North Eastern Athletic Conference Tournament in March. With three returning seniors, six sophomores and six newcomers, the Hawks look to improve on their 2002-03 record of 9-12.

Second-year head coach Andrea Agnello said the team “may look young on paper but this group has gained a lot of experience over the past year.”

Hilbert College, located in suburban Hamburg, N.Y., south of Buffalo, is a private four-year college founded in 1957 in the Catholic Franciscan tradition. With nearly 1,100 students, Hilbert is a dynamic Western New York college that offers career-focused majors, including one of the top criminal justice programs in the region, and more than 50 minors and concentrations. The college’s engaging, student-centered campus community offers numerous leadership, internship, and service learning opportunities from which students launch successful careers while making positive changes in their communities. The Hilbert Blueprint promotes a well-rounded student experience over four years – starting with the Foundations Seminar in the freshman year, followed by Sophomore Service, Junior Symposium, and culminating with the Senior Capstone. Hilbert has expanded its academic offerings with the college’s first graduate programs and new Accelerated Degree Programs geared to adult learners.
