Kelly Goodwin Andol 

Ranked among the college’s all-time leaders in 19 different statistical categories spread between two different sports, Kelly Goodwin Andol was Hilbert College’s very first athlete to be honored by the NCAA as a Division III national statistical leader.  She shined onhandler
the soccer field and softball diamonds and chipped in on the hardwood thus collecting ten varsity letters stretching between 2005 to 2009.

Goodwin Andol was a very steady and healthy softball player.  Her 134 games played not only set the program’s record, but she also started all 134 games as well. She holds the record for the highest number of runs scored – 86, and hits tallied – 143- in four years. She was named the softball team’s Newcomer of the Year in 2006 and shared Most Valuable Player honors her senior season in 2009. The Niagara Falls, NY native is also ranked in the softball program’s Top 3 players in seven other statistical categories.

Saving her best for last, Goodwin closed her final collegiate season without a blemish in the strike-out column.  She became Hilbert’s first NCAA Toughest to Strike-out National Leader having completed the season with a .302 batting average off 106 at-bats with 32 hits, four walks and no strike-outs.

On the pitch, Goodwin played most of her soccer career in goal and still holds the program’s record for most ties (5).  She becomes the soccer programs second Hall of Fame selection for a goalie and is still ranked in the top three in four other statistical categories.

Besides her competitive and enthusiastic spirit wearing the royal and white, Goodwin was a serious student.  She was a 4X AMCC Academic All-Conference selection and after graduating with a psychology degree from Hilbert, Goodwin continued her studies at St. Bonaventure.   There she earned an MSED in Counselor Education.  She is currently a mental health and substance abuse counselor at Catholic Charities.

Glen Ufland

Not a single day went by where Glen Ufland wasn’t involved in a practice or training session during his four years at Hilbert.  Ufland earned 13 varsity letters by the time he graduated in May 2007.  His true passion was baseball and basketball, but when called upon for help, he found that he enjoyed walking the links with the golf team and covering the course with the cross country team.

Ufland was a key contributor on the first men’s basketball team at Hilbert that qualified for the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate handler2
Conference post season tournament.  His efforts from the wing led the Hawks to back-to-back appearances just two seasons after Hilbert joined the very competitive AMCC league.

The southpaw is still ranked #2 in the Hawks’ All Time list in three point field goals attempted and made.  He ranks #4 in games played and rounds out the top 10 list in free throw percentage, 3-point field goal percentage and assists.

At the conclusion of his senior campaign, Ufland was selected as a  3rd Team AMCC All-Conference player after averaging 15 points per game while knocking down 39% of his shots from the floor and 81% at the foul line in 30 minutes of action.

The South Buffalo native took the mound for four baseball seasons and holds the program’s record for most appearances at 47.  He is ranked #2 in complete games and innings pitched, 4th in most wins and 6th in most strike-outs.

Ufland carried his bags around campus and helped the Hawks through the fall season.  He was a member of the golf program for three seasons and found a free minute to help the cross country program for two seasons.

Ufland took home some hardware each year at the annual athletics awards dinner every spring.  He was selected his team’s Most Valuable Player twice with baseball and once with the golf.  He earned two Most Improved Player honors, once in baseball and once in basketball and accepted the Coaches Award twice in the golf program.

After graduating in May 2007 with a criminal justice degree, Ufland entered the work force right away as a Boarder Patrol Agent out on the west coast and is currently an Immigration Service Officer In Albany, NY.
