HAMBURG, NY – The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford came to town and played a volleyball match at Hilbert College on Tuesday, October 13th. The home team played a very competitive first game but just couldn’t put the game away when they had chances. Bradford took the match from the Hawks with set scores of 25-23, 25-14, 25-14 to improve to 12-4 and 4-2 in Alleghany Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) standings. With the loss, Hilbert drops to 3-13 and 0-4 in AMCC play.

Hilbert was led offensively by junior Erica Page (Angola, NY/Lake Shore) with 7 kills off her 29 attempts. Sophomore Dale Jonathan (Basom, NY/Akron) {photo to the left} had another nice game setting; she earned 15 of the 21 assists for the team during the 3 games. And defensively, Page led the team again with 10 digs, but she had help from several other team mates, freshman Rachel Kwiatkowski (West Seneca, NY/Orchard Park) had 8 digs, and junior Brandi Mack (Gasport, NY/RoyHart) had 6 along with Carole Jones (Bliss, NY/Letchworth). Team Hilbert had more attempts than Bradford (103-94) but most of their attacks were returned aggressively for side-outs or scores for Bradford in games two and three.
Bradford was led by Brittany Kellogg who had 14 kills, 11 digs and 3 service aces.
This weekend the Hawks host another conference opponent La Roche College at 11am. Buffalo State College is joining the two AMCC schools for the day setting up a tri-match. Buffalo State and La Roche will play at 1pm and to finish the day off, Hilbert hosts Buffalo State at 3pm.
