The Amherst women’s volleyball team (14-9) had a successful homecoming weekend, picking up two wins and one loss during the 26th Annual Volleyball Hall of Fame Tournament at LeFrak Gymnasium.

Although the Mammoths began the tournament by losing 3-2 to Wellesley College, the hosts responded strongly on Saturday, winning against both Coast Guard Academy and Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI).

The Amherst women’s soccer team extended its win streak to four and its unbeaten streak to six with a victory over the Wesleyan Cardinals in the Mammoths’ sole match-up of the week on Saturday.

The win came at a crucial time in the season, as the Mammoths needed to top the Cardinals in order to secure a spot in the upcoming NESCAC tournament. Saturday also marked Amherst’s homecoming and the team’s Senior Day.

Amherst women’s soccer split this past weekend’s games, dropping Saturday’s match against Tufts 2-1 in overtime before bouncing back on Sunday to dominate New England College.

Against the Jumbos, Amherst was first to get on the board with Hannah Guzzi ’18 tallying her eighth goal of the season in the 79th minute of action.

Unfortunately, the Mammoths were unable to maintain the lead and the Jumbos answered with a goal of their own less than five minutes later.

The Amherst women’s soccer team suffered two in-conference loses over the past weekend in tightly contested matches against Williams on Sept. 23 and against Conn. College on Sept. 24.

In unseasonably warm temperatures for the first days of fall, the Mammoths battled through back-to-back matches on Saturday and Sunday after a week of rest from games.

First, Amherst traveled to Williamstown to take on the Ephs. Currently ranked fourth in the nation by the NCAA, Williams was a formidable foe for the Mammoths, and Amherst ultimately lost the match 3-2.

The Amherst women’s soccer team had an action-packed week with three matches in a seven-day span. The Mammoths went 1-2 on the week, dropping their record to 3-2 for the season (1-1 NESCAC).

The Amherst women’s soccer team opened the 2017 season with a bang, tallying a total of 11 goals in only two games. With wins against Mount Holyoke and NESCAC rival Bowdoin, their record stands at 2-0 overall (1-0 NESCAC).

On a humid Thursday night under the lights at Mount Holyoke, the Mammoths completely dominated the Lyons in the 90-minute match. By the time the buzzer sounded to signal the end of the first half, Amherst already led the home team 8-0.

Amherst women’s soccer will return to Hitchcock Field this season as the defending NESCAC champions.

The Mammoths had an impressive 2016 season, finishing with a 17-3-1 record and advancing to the third round of the NCAA Championship before falling to William Smith College.

Several stars emerged for the Amherst women in the course of the team’s run of dominance last season, with four Mammoths named to All-NESCAC teams.
