ALTOONA, PA – Meghan Gollaher (Rochester, NY/Spencerport) pitched a seven-inning shutout on Saturday to lift the Hilbert College softball team to a 1-0 win at Penn State Altoona. Gollaher went the distance and allowed just five hits to help the Hawks to their first win in the Kerry Levett era. Penn State Altoona regrouped for an 11-0 win in the five-inning nightcap.

In game one, Hilbert’s first three batters reached base with Kelly Goodwin (Niagara Falls, NY/Niagara Falls) driving home leadoff hitter Tiffany Morris (Buffalo, NY/Performing Arts) for the only run needed. Gollaher faced 26 batters recording one strikeout and allowing no walks in the win.

In the second game, the Lady Lions (3-11, 2-2) regrouped to score twice in the first-inning, seven in the second, and two more in the third to reach a commanding lead. Penn State Altoona’s Emily Cummins allowed just one hit while picking up a strikeout and surrendering no walks to earn the win. Gollaher suffered the loss for the Hawks who picked up a hit their lone hit from Laura Stranc (West Seneca, NY/West Seneca West).

The Hawk (1-11, 1-3) will return to action on Monday, April 2nd for a 3:00 pm doubleheader at Nazareth College.
