Beginning their season last weekend against Bowdoin, the Amherst women’s lacrosse team claimed an 11-6 win over the Polar Bears to open their overall record and conference record at 1-0.

In a matinee game on Saturday, March 5, it was Bowdoin who opened the scoring a mere 34 seconds into the contest. After Amherst’s Claire Cagnassola ’17 controlled the draw, the Polar Bears forced a turnover before Megan O’Connor shot the ball past Amherst goalie Christy Forrest ’16.

The Amherst women’s track and field team impressed in the ECAC championship meet this weekend at the Ocean Breeze Atlantic Complex in Staten Island, New York. The purple and white, despite posting an overall 31st -place finish out of 50 teams, set several personal records after numerous strong individual performances.

The Amherst men’s ice hockey team took on two NESCAC rivals in the semifinal and final round of the NESCAC tournament this weekend. After a win over Middlebury in the semifinals of the NESCAC tournament the purple and white fell to Trinity in the finals, concluding their 2015-16 season.

At the 8:46 mark in the still scoreless first period, John Festa ’19 scored his first collegiate goal to give Amherst the lead. The Panthers had their first power play of the game but were unable to answer as the period ended 1-0.

Every writer with a particular philosophy in mind while writing must maintain an extremely delicate balance between the demands of conveying the aspects of this idea and the demands of the story. “The Right Move,” written by Lara Min ’16, is a great example of one’s position upon this menacing precipice.

The No. 4 Amherst women’s basketball team posted big wins over Eastern Connecticut State University (ECSU), 65-47, and Rowan University, 78-57, to advance to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Division III championship tournament.

Following the release of their four EPs in 2012 and 2013, British four-piece, The 1975 finally released their eponymous full length album in 2013. The album shot up the charts and even was number one in a couple of countries. After a sly endorsement in the form of a tweet from One Direction member Harry Styles, and a Taylor Swift sighting at one of their concerts, The 1975 became overnight successes. Fans quickly fell in love with lead singer Matt Healy and his habit of mumbling the song lyrics.

Last weekend, posters mysteriously appeared around campus. Although not officially affiliated with the movement, the writer of the poster printed the Amherst Uprising logo at the top and began the message with the accusatory question,“Where have you gone Amherst Uprising???” followed by a sarcastic “Congratulations!!!” At first glance, the poster seems to suggest that students bring back the Amherst Uprising movement more publicly, but the poster’s actual language instead diminishes the work participants of Amherst Uprising have put into the movement.
