PITTSBURGH, PA – The Hilbert College softball team dropped two AMCC league games at La Roche College April 7. The Hawks lost 11-3 in the early contest before losing 13-8 in the night cap. Allison Hall led the visitors with two RBIs for the day and one double bagger in game two. Rachel Collier went three for five (.600) scoring two runs as the Hawks dropped  to 1-7 in league play. 

Hilbert put runs on the board first after Katie Pettis’ single sent Natalie Whitman home during the Hawks second trip on offense. Kateland Ball’s base hit single scored  Collier to end Hibert’s push in the top of the second inning. La Roche responded with single runs in both the bottom of the second and third innings prior to their five-run fourth inning tear.    The RedHawks’ McLay homered in the bottom of the sixth driving in two runs to stretch the lead to eight runs. Devan Jonathan tossed a complete game through 5.2 innings and gave up 14 hits.

Elissa Hall went two for three in the second stanza and scored two runs through the seven inning contest. Each team scored runs in five of the innings, but the Hawks surrendered three runs in four-straight defensive trips to the field.   Jill Martucci, Allison Hall, Emili Ripley, Halsey Baker, Whitman and Jonathan each earned an RBI but as a team, the Hawks left 12 runners on base dropping the second game by five runs.

The softball team has a busy week coming up. They play host to Pitt-Bradford on the 11th, Wells on the 12th before the weekend AMCC game against Franciscan.
