BRADFORD, PA – The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford earned a 3-0 win over the visiting Hilbert College women’s volleyball team on Wednesday to improve to 6-8 overall and 2-3 in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC). The loss drops the Hawks to 4-14 and 0-4 in conference play.

Destyn Brown (Ithaca, NY/Ithaca) paced the Hawks with eight kills and three serving aces. Laura Stranc (West Seneca, NY/West Seneca West) dished out 10 assists and recorded 12 digs in a losing effort.

“Everything is starting to come together for this young team,” stated Hilbert coach Tim Clauss. “Our chemistry is developing and our defense is transferring to stronger offense.”
