PAINESVILLE, OH – The Hilbert College offense registered just seven kills on the night and fell to conference foe Lake Erie College in three-straight games Tuesday. The host Storm took game one 30-15 before picking up wins of 30-20, and 30-18 to close out the victory. Suffering their fifth straight loss, the Hawks drop to 8-13 overall and 0-6 in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC).

Hilbert’s Erica Page (Angola, NY/Lake Shore) and Destyn Brown (Ithaca, NY) combined for 64 offensive hits, but landed just three kills between the two of them. Morgan Oag-Walker (Jamestown, NY/Cassadaga Valley) recorded a team-high 17 digs with Page finishing with two aces and 13 digs in defeat.

The Lake Erie (9-18) win improves the Storm to 4-3 in league play, solidifying fifth place in the AMCC standings. Penn State Altoona (17-5, 6-0) comes to the Hafner Recreation Center on Saturday as the Hawks will look to upset the first place Lions. Start time is scheduled for 1:00 pm.
