With 10 of last year seniors having graduated, seven of whom were starters, the Amherst men’s soccer team will have many new faces in their lineup this year.

Perhaps most notably, the Mammoths will have to find replacements for their entire back line of Jackson Lehnhart ’17, Cameron Bean ’17, Justin Aoyama ’17 and Rohan Sood ’17, the backbone of a dominant defense.

However, despite dramatic turnover, the squad feels confident that it will continue the program’s winning legacy.

After an outstanding 2016-17 season that saw the Mammoths place ninth overall at the Division III National Championships, Amherst women’s golf is poised for continued success after losing only one senior, returning four of the five golfers that competed in May.

Further helping the Mammoths’ cause is the return of head coach Elizabeth Davis, who in her first season leading the program last year garnered East Region Coach of the Year honors from the WGCA.

Entering head coach Carol Knerr’s 17th season, the Amherst field hockey team is looking forward to a strong upcoming season. Only four members of last year’s squad graduated last spring, which leaves the team with 19 returning players. The team is also expecting six or seven first years to join them on the field this upcoming fall.

The Amherst men’s football team is one of the most successful groups in Division III sports. With six NESCAC titles and seven perfect seasons under their belt, numbers which only the hated Ephs can rival, the team is one of the most successful programs at Amherst.

However, the 2016 season was a somewhat uncharacteristic one for the Mammoths, with the team finishing 4-4 overall. Although it was not a losing season, it was understandably frustrating for a team that had captured the past three NESCAC titles.

Men’s Cross Country
The men’s cross country team started championship season with a second-place finish to rival Williams at the Little III Championships. At the NESCAC Championships, the Mammoths placed second to the Ephs on the challenging course at Colby. Mohamed Hussein ’18 led the team with his fifth-place finish to earn First Team All-NESCAC honors. Sophomore Cosmo Brossy placed eighth in a breakout race, earning Second Team All-NESCAC honors.
