Women’s volleyball (16-9) ended the regular season on a high note, securing a spot in the NESCAC playoffs after beating Bates on Thursday and Colby on Saturday.

The Amherst College women’s volleyball team snapped a four-game losing streak this weekend with a NESCAC win over Williams.

Before facing off with Williams, however, the Firedogs endured two tough away losses against strong opponents: Clark University and Hamilton.

Against the Clark Cougars, Amherst played well in an evenly contested match, but dropped a tight first two sets and ultimately fell 3-1 (17-25, 21-25, 25-12, 20-25). In the third set, the Firedogs showed tenacity and grit to avoid the sweep.
