Junior soccer players Alyssa Hulbert and Eric Russell have been named the Hilbert College Co-Student-Athletes of the Month for October, 2010.

Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference opponents were focused on Hulbert (Tonawanda, NY/Kenmore East) during the last 31 days. She scored 4 of the team’s 5 goals since October 1st and earned her first assist of the season. Hulbert’s nine point month was a result of 51 shots (15 on goal). Against Penn State Behrend, the co-captain scored two goals, making it the third game in 2010 where she had two or more scores in one game. The winless month of October was a challenging time for the Hawks, but Hulbert remained on the field the full 720 minutes looking for ways to put one past the keeper or set up a teammate. This marks the third year that Hulbert has been recognized as a Hilbert College SAOM.

Hulbert is a criminal justice major, carries a 3.29 GPA and is a member of the AMCC All-Academic team.

Russell had his best month of soccer in October 2010. The 2-5-1 Hawks were fighting for the last play-off spot and Russell led the charge. He scored 4 goals and had 4 assists earning 12 points. His break-out game was against Mount Aloysius College when he accumulated 5 points (2 goals / 1 assist) in the team’s 4-0 victory. The co-captain’s  53% shots on goal accuracy was impressive and he was the first Hawk to score a goal against Medaille College since the 2005 season. This marks the first time Russell is recognized for his outstanding efforts.

Russell (Hickory, NC/Iroquois) has been an AMCC All-Academic team member carrying a 3.52 GPA as an accounting major.
