The Amherst women’s basketball team celebrated their seniors’ careers this past Sunday against Middlebury. Senior Megan Robertson lit up LeFrak, scoring 14 points, pulling down eight rebounds and blocking six shots. Fellow senior Taylor Smith knocked down the first 3-pointer of the game to help lead the Jeffs to victory.

“I think this was one of the most fun games we’ve had all season; not only because it was senior day, but because we played well and we enjoyed playing basketball,” Smith said.

While men’s basketball continued its winning ways with a mid-week victory over Lasell, pushing Amherst’s winning streak to six straight, the Jeffs were unable to conclude the regular season in the manner in which they had hoped for after falling to Middlebury on the road. With these two games in the books, the Jeffs finished the 2015 regular season with an 18-6 overall record and a 6-4 NESCAC record.

In the early months of the first semester, I wrote an article about drawing the line between tough and soft in the midst of an injury. I concluded that there is no universal equation to determine whether or not someone is acting valorously or foolishly when playing through an injury, and only the injured individual possesses the ability to dictate whether or not he or she should participate in an athletic contest.

The men’s ice hockey team took to the road this weekend, picking up two decisive victories over NESCAC opponents Connecticut College and Tufts.

The first win came on Valentine’s day, as the Jeffs handed the Camels a 4-0 loss.

Chirs Roll ’17 started the scoring early on the day, netting an unassisted goal 14 minutes into the first period. The goal was the sophomore’s first of the season.
