This past weekend, the Amherst men’s squash team continued its undefeated campaign by defeating both Conn. College and Northeastern University in a round robin tournament hosted at the Mammoths’ home Davenport Courts. With the two wins, Amherst’s record now stands at 4-0.

Against the Camels, Amherst won all nine competitive matches as well as the exhibition court contest, sweeping seven of the 10 courts. The first-year class keyed the Mammoths’ victory, with first-years winning their matches in the first and third through sixth spots.

It was a big weekend for the Amherst men’s hockey team, as the Mammoths took on conference rivals Wesleyan and Trinity. Both games went into overtime, and Amherst came away from the weekend with two ties and now boasts a record of 2-1-3 overall and 0-0-3 in the NESCAC.

Despite graduating more than half its starting lineup last year, the Amherst men’s basketball team has come out strong in their first few games of the 2017-18 season. Per tradition, the Mammoths began their season by hosting the Ken Wright Invitational Tournament, which featured three teams in addition to Amherst — Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts (MCLA), Sarah Lawrence College and Western New England University.

The Amherst men’s hockey team has had a solid start to the 2017-18 season. After four games, the Mammoths boast an overall record of 2-1-1 and are feeling confident heading into two big NESCAC matchups this weekend.
“We’ve looked pretty good so far,” senior captain Patrick Mooney said. “We need to work on our consistency a little, but we definitely have the pieces to make some noise this year.”

At the Division III National Cross Country Championships, the Amherst men’s cross country team placed fourth overall, the highest-ever finish in program history at the season-concluding meet. The Mammoths scored 251 points, just 18 points ahead of fifth-place Washington University in St. Louis. Prior to travelling to Elsah, Ill. for nationals, the Mammoths were ranked eighth in the nation and were not favorites for a podium finish. Furthermore, the team’s highest place finish before was ninth in 2014.

The past two weeks have seen the Amherst women’s basketball team open what appears to be another incredibly promising season with four dominating wins. After winning last year’s NESCAC and DIII National Championship, going undefeated in the process, the Mammoths continued their winning ways with victories over Lyndon State College, Springfield College, Little Three rival Wesleyan and Emmanuel College.

Over the first weekend of Thanksgiving break the Amherst men’s squash team returned to the court, opening the season with two wins. On Friday, Nov. 17, Amherst bested NESCAC rival Tufts, before overwhelming Boston University the following day. Both matches took place at home at the Davenport Courts.
