The Amherst women’s soccer team upped its win streak to five as it captured two more victories over the weekend. After jumping to the No. 18 spot in the NCAA Coach’s Poll following last week’s undefeated weekend, the Jeffs rolled into the weekend ready to continue their success. In the first of the doubleheader, Amherst (7-1-0, 4-1-0) defeated Tufts (6-1-0, 3-1-0) who had entered Saturday’s contest as the top-ranked team in the NESCAC.

With two games this past weekend, Amherst men’s soccer remained unbeaten on the season and extended their NESCAC unbeaten streak to 26 games. The weekend consisted of a 1-1 draw at Tufts on Saturday and a 1-0 victory over Bates on Sunday. Seven games into the season, the Jeffs stand at 5-0-2 overall and 4-0-2 in the NESCAC.

The Jumbos struck first against the Jeffs on Saturday, marking the first time in three weeks that the Jeffs trailed against an opponent.

This past Saturday, the Amherst men’s cross country team traveled to Williams to compete in the Purple Valley Classic. Thanks to Mohamed Hussein ’18 and his fifth place overall finish, the Jeffs took fourth place in the 21-team event.

The Amherst field hockey team continued its impressive run, defeating two NESCAC foes this past weekend.

The Jeffs earned their first win on Saturday, Sept. 27 on the road against Tufts. It was the fourth-ranked Jumbos’ first loss of the year as well as the first time they had surrendered a goal all season.

Tufts scored first as Dominique Zarella rattled a shot off the back of the cage unassisted less than three minutes into play.

Amherst would answer before the half ended, however, as Annie Turnbull ’16 found Madeline Tank ’15 to bring the score to one apiece.

In the wake of the Donald Sterling scandal last spring, the NBA and the public have become much more sensitive to racism in sports culture. The question is: have we gone too far?

As if the appraisals of Derek Jeter’s legacy hadn’t already reached a fever pitch, the Yankees’ shortstop ended his last game at Yankee stadium with a walk-off single, providing everyone with a new reason to discuss how good he really was. Jeter suffered the misfortune of playing in an era when the popular film Moneyball popularized sabermetrics. Pre-sabermetrics, players were generally judged on whether they hit round career numbers, (3,000 hits or 500 home runs) and anecdotally.

The men’s golf team finished seventh this past weekend in the NESCAC Qualifier held at Hamilton. Middlebury won the weekend with a total score of 599, followed by Hamilton, Trinity and Williams. These four teams advanced to play for the NESCAC championship this weekend.
