HAMBURG, NY – Brockport State, undefeated in the State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC), earned a 3-0 sweep of Hilbert College on Thursday in women’s NCAA division III volleyball action. The win boasts the Golden Eagles to 14-11 on the year while the Hawks fall to 8-10.

Hitting just -.033 for the match, the Hawks struggled to capitalize on offense while registering just eight kills on the day. The Golden Eagles cruised to a 30-13 win in the first game before reserves were called upon to take game two 30-24, and game three 30-25.

Melissa Kick (Blasdell, NY/Mt. Mercy) paced the host Hawks with seven assists and eight digs. Laura Stranc (West Seneca, NY/West Seneca West) added two kills, nine digs and one of the Hawks three aces.

A road trip to conference foe Mount Aloysius College awaits Hilbert on Saturday. Start time is scheduled for 11:00 am with a non league contest against Valley Forge College to follow at 1:00 pm.
