In the starter set, the Hill Dwarf Cleric's character sheet shows a Hit Point maximum of 11. Shouldn't it be 10 from a 1d8 Hit Die and the Constitution bonus of +2?

The cleric is a Hill Dwarf. Page 13 of D&D Basic Rules v0.1 describes the Dwarven Toughness racial trait that Hill Dwarves have, which grants +1 hp each level, including 1st.
