The seventh-ranked women’s lacrosse team spent its spring break traveling to New Jersey and Pennsylvania for match-ups against Montclair St. and Haverford. The team fared well on the road, picking up two convincing wins, holding their opponents to a combined six goals.
The first win came on Monday, March 16 over Montclair State as the Jeffs were lifted by seven second half goals en route to the 10-3 victory.
The game was highlighted by a trio of goals from senior captain Meghan Mills. She also led the team with six ground balls.

The Amherst women’s tennis team has come out blazing this season with four consecutive wins during their spring break trip to Southern California. The Jeffs overcame Pomona-Pitzer on the first match of their trip, followed by a tightly contested win over UConn the next day. Coming back after a day off from competition, the women dominated their two most recent matches against Chapman University and Vassar College on the final days of their California tour, crushing each team 8-1.

Current students might know Tony Marx for recently appearing on Humans of New York to advocate for the modern relevance of the public library. But the former Amherst president should be noted for his agenda that has changed the campus makeup and culture. Pushing for a level of diversity unheard of by our peer institutions, he created some of the generous financial aid packages that allow the Admissions Office to operate need-blind. There should be no doubt that the Admissions’ Office commitment to creating a diverse student body has done wonders for this college.

The defending national champion and No. 1 regionally and nationally ranked Amherst men’s tennis team returned to action over spring break, building on the successes of the fall season. As they have done for the last seven years now, the Jeffs traveled west to California for a demanding week that featured 10 matches in just six days. The tremendous depth and size of the team allowed them to play an incredible number of matches while still competing at a very high level.

Though they undoubtedly enjoyed the much warmer climate in Florida, it was hardly just a vacation week for the Amherst women’s softball team. With 12 games in only seven days, the Jeffs hit the ground at a sprint to start off their season. Thanks to strong contributions from multiple players, the team now sports an 8-4 record as they return back to the Northeast.

After their fourth-place finish at the NESCAC championships, the Amherst women’s swim and dive team sent seven swimmers to compete in 14 events in Shenandoah, Texas for the NCAA Division III championships.

The Jeffs beat non-conference opponent Endicott at home Friday, March 13 before traveling to Owen Mills, Maryland to defeat Washington College on March 17. The purple and white closed the week with a decisive 13-7 victory over NESCAC opponent Hamilton on Saturday, March 21 in sunny Florida.
