MYRTLE BEACH, FL - Hilbert College freshman pitcher Kate Moyer (Scio, NY/Scio) went six innings with four strikeouts to help the Hawks to a 9-1 win over Russell Sage College Tuesday morning. Later in the day the Hawks lost 1-10 to Hood College in a five inning contest.

In the win against the Gators, Hilbert’s Kelly Goodwin (Niagara Falls, NY/Niagara Falls) went three for four, Kaitlyn Miller (Depew, NY/Depew) was two for four with two RBIs, and Jeanette Testa (Forestville, NY/Forestville) earned a hit while collecting two RBIs for the winners. Hot bats helped the Hawks to five doubles in the game as Hilbert picked up their first win of the 2006 season.

Later in the day against Hood College, the Blazers picked up all of their runs in the second and third innings as four errors were charged to the Hawks defense. Miller’s continued production on offense was a bright spot as the junior outfielder went one for two with a stolen base to help the Hawks cause. Meghan Gollaher (Rochester, NY/Spencerport) was charged with the loss while allowing six hits and four earned runs.

The Hawks (1-4) will continue play in the Myrtle Beach Snowbird Tournament with a 9:30 AM game against Gettysburg College on Wednesday. Hilbert will face NCAA Division II Shepherd University later in the day at 11:30 AM.
