HAMBURG, N.Y. – Visiting Mount Aloysius College raced Saturday to a three-game sweep (30-22, 30-14, 30-11) of the Hilbert College women’s volleyball team. The loss leaves the Hawks still searching for their first win in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (0-7), and 1-13 overall.   With the win, the Hawks end the season at 6-9-1.


Tied 0-0 at the half, Gawronski’s second-half goal was followed by goals from Shannon Bieniek (Orchard Park, NY/West Seneca West) and Cristina DiSano (Spencerport, NY/Spencerport) to put the game out of reach.


In their first year as a member of the highly competitive Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference, the Hawks finish with a 3-6 mark, good enough for seventh place. Hilbert coach Jamie Ruggiero will lose three seniors who are graduating, but will look forward to the return of 12 players for the 2005 season.
