The Amherst women’s tennis team traveled to Williamstown, Mass. on Saturday, April 15 to face off against the Ephs of Williams College.

In a tough match against their archrival, the 12th-ranked Mammoths fell to No. 4 Williams, 8-1.

Amherst’s sole victory came from Camille Smukler ’20/Kelsey Chen ’19 on the first doubles court.

The No. 1 doubles pair for the Mammoths is an impressive 6-3 on the season and has won their last five matches. The duo downed Hannah Atkinson/Chloe Henderson, 8-5.

The Amherst men’s track and field team had a busy and successful weekend, as several mid-distance and distance runners competed at the Silfen Invitational hosted by Connecticut College on Friday, April 14. The next day, Saturday, April 15, the majority of the team competed across town at the UMass Minuteman Invitational.

Sophomores Kristian Sogaard and Vernon Espinoza kicked off the action this weekend for the Mammoths by placing second and third in the 800-meter run. The duo finished the two-lap race in 1:54, demonstrating their speed as the NESCAC Championships approach.

After dropping their series against Middlebury two games to one on April 7-8, Amherst baseball rebounded in a big way with a 4-1 week that featured a three-game sweep of archrival Williams.

With these results, the team’s record now stands at 10-10 (4-2 NESCAC).

The Amherst men’s tennis team continued its season-long dominance, posting a perfect record against four opponents to stretch the team’s win streak to five games.

Coming off a win over Division I foe Bryant, the Mammoths’ strong play carried over to both matches of last Friday’s doubleheader. Given that both matches were away, Coach Todd Doebler elected to send his stronger team to Cambridge, Mass., to take on the 22nd-ranked Massachusetts Institute of Technology, while Amherst’s second squad faced off against NESCAC foe Connecticut College later in the evening.

Facing some tough opponents both in and out of conference, the Amherst baseball team went 1-4 this past week to bring their overall record to 6-9.
