Watching Meredith Monk was a dream come true for me. Indeed, her concert had the rare magic of teleporting me from the Buckley Recital Hall to imaginary landscapes: when she performed parts of “Songs from the Hill” (1977), I was watching her at the top of a mountain in New Mexico under the scorching summer sun, where the music was born. And when her voice bounced with the piano keys in “Traveling,” I felt like a kid hopping along a grassy path in a vast open land, bounded only by the snowy range from afar.

Hounded by a raucous, hostile Wesleyan homecoming crowd, the men’s soccer team battled to a 1-1 draw against the Cardinals last weekend.

Spencer Noon ’13 staked the Jeffs (11-0-2, 7-0-2 NESCAC) to a 1-0 lead by scoring just 22 seconds before halftime, but Wesleyan (7-3-3, 5-2-2 NESCAC) leveled the match in the 66th minute to steal a share of the points.

With Saturday’s result in the books, all three Little Ivy teams (Amherst, Williams, Wesleyan) have tied each other this season, marking the first time since 1932 that all three Little Ivy matchups have ended in draws.

Field hockey bounced back from a rocky stretch of conference play to record two wins last week in their push to the postseason.

The 15th-ranked Lord Jeffs used a big second-half run to pull away en route to a 5-1 victory over Smith on Thursday before traveling to Wesleyan on Saturday. In a nail-biter, the team withstood intense offensive pressure before scoring with six minutes left and holding on for a win that left them in sole possession of fifth place in the NESCAC.

Needing a victory to stay in the hunt for the NESCAC Championship, the Lord Jeffs faced a tough challenge at Wesleyan on Saturday, Oct. 20. Two weeks ago, the Amherst team suffered its first loss of the season, a demoralizing 24-3 setback at the hands of Middlebury. Now, the squad knew it would have to win out to catch Williams and Trinity atop the conference standings, and the tough road ahead was to begin in Middletown, Conn.
