The women’s lacrosse team beat Wesleyan last Wednesday before falling to Middlebury on Saturday. Their overall record is 7-3 (4-3 NESCAC) after a dominant win against Conn. College last night.

On Friday, the softball team was dealt its first loss of the season after falling 9-7 in the second game of a doubleheader against Keene State. Last Wednesday, however, the Jeffs earned two shutouts against Westfield State and are now 22-1 on the season — the best start in program history.

Finding a job in this market is hard. Being a recent graduate with little to no real work experience makes finding a decent job even harder. My post-Amherst plans have been to join the workforce to start paying off my loans and to save for graduate school, which I start this coming fall semester. Since 2012Es have not yet been given our degrees because the Amherst College Board of Trustees only approves degrees at the end of each spring semester, I have been presenting my official transcript to potential employers as proof that I have earned my bachelor’s degree.

Though all three games were decided by two runs or fewer, including an extra-inning affair Saturday night, the Jeffs managed three critical victories over archrival Williams and improved to 6-0 in NESCAC play.
