STEUBENVILLE, OH – Franciscan University hosted Hilbert College women’s volleyball on Saturday, October 24. The Hawks faced a hard hitting team and left the city with a loss to the home team: 17-25, 15-25, 13-25. Hilbert’s conference record drops to 1-6 and 4-16 overall. Franciscan improves to 2-7, and 9-14.

None of the Hawks dominated the offensive kill stat since the 12 “kills” for the team were evenly distributed. Freshman Rachel Kwiatkowski (Orchard Park, NY/West Seneca West) lead the team in assists with 11. Junior Erica Page (Angola, NY/Lake Shore) got in position to get under 10 digs for the day and right behind her with 6 digs was junior Brandi Mack (Gasport, NY/Roy-Hart).
Hilbert returns to the court on Tuesday, October 27 when the meet up again with D’Youville College for the second time this season. The Hawks and the Spartans played each other opening weekend at the D’Youville Tournament. Hilbert looks to shows off the signs of improvement when they face cross town rival on the court again.
