After beating Mount Holyoke 15-5 on Wednesday, April 15, the women’s lacrosse team could not muster the win on Saturday in Medford. The 12th-ranked Tufts team edged the Jeffs 11-10 in overtime. The loss drops Amherst to 4-5 in conference play, while the Jumbos improve to 6-3.

“OT games are always hard ones to lose, but that’s the story of the NESCAC this year,” said tri-captain Meghan Mill ’15. “We’ve had several one-goal games, which is a testament to the tight competition in the conference.”

The Amherst men’s golf team competed at the Trinity College invitational this past weekend Saturday, April 18 and 19. The Jeffs placed third among the four teams at the tournament.

Host Trinity’s “A” squad took first place with a combined score of 621 with their “B” team coming in second place with a 641 two-day total. Amherst followed closely behind in third with a 655 score, and Wesleyan finished in last with a 685 total.

With beautiful spring weather in New England, it was the ideal weekend for some tennis. The women’s tennis had two matches under the sun as the team faced off against archrival and No. 1-ranked Williams on Saturday and No. 17-ranked Wesleyan on Sunday. The Jeffs went 1-1 this weekend, losing to Williams but bouncing back the next day to defeat Wesleyan.

The Amherst men’s lacrosse team improved to 13-1 on the season after a forceful 12-6 win over No. 3 Tufts University on Saturday, April 18. The victory at Pratt Field secured the Jeffs’ leading position in the NESCAC before their upcoming final game of the season against Trinity on Wednesday, April 22.
