The Amherst College men’s golf team placed fifth out of 17 teams competing in the Hampton Inn Collegiate Invitational held at the Allendale Country Club located in North Dartmouth, Massachusetts on April 10 and 11.

Rhode Island College came in first place with a score of 641 while Endicott College and Salem State University finished tied for second with scores of 650. Babson College came in fourth with a two-day combined score of 659, while Amherst finished with a score of 662 to round out the top five finishers.

One-half of the Flight of the Conchords duo who brought you “Business Time” and “Foux de Fa Fa,” and the genius behind award-winning “Boy,” are back with “What We Do in the Shadows”— a feature-length film that in my opinion trumps any of the Flight of the Conchords’ most famous videos. It’s not just a documentary, not just a vampire movie — it’s a vampire mockumentary. Jermaine Clement (of Flight of the Conchords) and Taika Waititi (“Boy”) have created something funny and subversive, and they take themselves just seriously enough to do the trick.

Maybe I’m just a bitter person who hates any kind of romantic film, or maybe I’m just tired of the fact that the romantic movie genre has basically turned into perpetual adaptations of Nicholas Sparks novels. “The Longest Ride” is the newest in the plethora of Sparks films. What makes this film different from the others? Practically nothing. In all honesty, it really is just a different cast and a slightly tweaked familiar plotline.

The 2015 Spring Arts Festival, Amherst College’s biggest arts festival yet, is currently holding a mix of musical and visual performances; art exhibits and workshops and conversations with artists. Spanning over 10 days with an event or two every day, the festival has so far hosted a few music showcases and celebrations, a film screening and an artist workshop with Jonathon Keats ’94. Still to come: an arts party at the Powerhouse, a glee club concert, an arts faculty performance and a reveal of the Jonathon Keats exhibit at The Mead, paired with a lecture by Keats himself.

After cruising past Trinity on Tuesday 8-1, the Amherst women’s tennis team encountered their first real challenge of the season this past Saturday. The Jeffs faced No. 10-ranked Bowdoin in a nail-biting back-and-forth battle. Ultimately, the women in purple and white prevailed, defeating Bowdoin 5-4.

The Amherst women’s track team had a busy weekend, splitting their time between a trip down to Connecticut College on Friday and up the road to UMass on Saturday. The team came away with some successful results that qualify them for championship races later this season.

After a tough mid-week loss to Connecticut College on Tuesday, April 7, the Amherst women’s lacrosse team rallied for a heart-stopping senior day win against Colby. The team now stands at 8-4 overall on the season and 4-4 in the NESCAC conference. Just three games remain in the regular season, including two key conference match-ups against Tufts and Trinity.

Junior Rachel Passarelli netted the game-winner with one second remaining in the second overtime period to bring the game to its final score of 9-8.
