Last weekend, the men’s track and field team traveled to Trinity to compete at the Trinity College Invitational. The unscored meet gave the Mammoths an opportunity to tuneup for next weekend’s NESCAC Championships, which will be hosted by Bowdoin.

The meet kicked off with Aziz Khan ’18 competing in the preliminary round of the 100-meter dash, where he qualified for the eight-person final with a time of 11.39 seconds. In the final, he matched his preliminary round time to place sixth overall.

The Amherst women’s lacrosse team collected a huge 9-6 victory this past Saturday against archrival Williams College, a crucial win as it secured the Mammoths a spot in the upcoming NESCAC tournament.

However, senior Claire Cagnassola opened the scoring a little less than ten minutes into the half, capitalizing on an assist from Annie Cohen ’19.

The Amherst men’s lacrosse team had a thrilling weekend, besting NESCAC powerhouse Tufts 21-15 on Saturday, April 15 at Pratt Field.

Along the way, first-year Colin Minicus garnered NESCAC player of the week honors on Monday after piling up 17 points in Amherst’s win over Tufts and their prior victory on Tuesday, April 11 against Connecticut College.

The Amherst women’s golf team made a strong showing this weekend, April 15 to 16, on their home course at Hickory Ridge Golf Club. The team finished with a combined score of 628 to place third at the Jack Leaman Invitational.

Last Wednesday, the Mammoths faced off against local rival Smith in a doubleheader. Game One proved to be the closest game that Amherst played in almost a month, with the Mammoths prevailing by the slightest of margins, 2-1. With neither team able to muster a run in the first five innings, the contest quickly turned into a pitchers’ duel between Smith’s Natalie Burchat and Amherst’s duo of Jackie Buechler ’17 and Lorena Ukanwa ’19.

The Amherst women’s lacrosse team snapped a three-game slide with a mid-week win over Connecticut College before dropping a tightly contested match against 20th-ranked Tufts.
