From the 2006-2007 season to the 2011-2012 season Hilke was the Head Coach for the Division 4-Black team. While coaching the D34Black team he compiled a 90-27-8 record.

With Hilke at the helm, the D4-Gold Lions rolled to another solid regular season during the 2017-2018 campaign, posting a 14-3-0 record. After winning the Great Plains Regional Championship, the Lions were poised to run the table at the 2018 NCRHA National Championship Tournament. Three solid wins in pool play against Arizona State, Michigan State, and Farmingdale State College would give the Lions the #1 overall seed going into bracket play. The Lions would then go on to defeat Slippery Rock (quarterfinals) and Bethel (semifinals). Lindenwood would play #2 ranked Farmingdale in the finals and defeat the Rams 4-2. This would be the 14th overall national championship for the D4-Gold Lions in the last 15 years.
