The Amherst men’s lacrosse team experienced another dramatic week of NESCAC play. They began their week with an important win against Connecticut College last Tuesday.

The Camels scored their first and only goal of the starting quarter off of an assisted goal. Quinn Moroney ’16 answered back with monstrous six assists to put the purple and white up 6-1.

The women’s lacrosse team continued its hot streak on Senior Day this past Saturday, April 16. A thrilling 7-6 triumph over Tufts marked the purple and white’s fourth consecutive win.

Hanna Krueger ’17 opened up the scoring with an unassisted goal less than five minutes into the first half. Tufts’ Caroline Ross provided the equalizer soon after. Rachel Passarelli ’16 netted the man-up goal less than a minute after Ross. The game remained tight with Kate Wyeth ’17 notching Amherst’s third and final goal of the half.

The Amherst women’s golf team found redemption this past weekend against rival Williams in the Jack Leaman Invitational at Hickory Ridge Golf Club. Finishing the tournament with a total score of 637, Amherst claimed first place, beating out the Ephs by a solid 18 strokes.

Having finished second behind Williams the weekend before in the Vassar College Invitational, the purple and white made a strong case for themselves as the best team in the NESCAC with this definitive win.

Three weeks away from the show’s grand opening, I talked with the directors and producer of “Into the Woods” which will be performed at Orr Rink, May 4-7. Producer Jayson Paul ’16, director A. Scott Parry, musical director Mark Swanson and orchestra liaison Sam Rosenblum ’16 were eager to discuss what this musical means to them and why they hope to revive the college’s tradition of putting on an annual musical.

Q: What does “Into the Woods” mean to you and what effect do you hope it has on this campus?

There has been plenty of hand-wringing in the senate about whether the college’s student government, Association of Amherst Students, is a worthwhile institution. There has always been hand-wringing, but lately it is astonishingly pervasive; all anyone affiliated with the student government can talk about is how “dysfunctional” it is. The irony of course is that if senators chose to defer these conversations so they could actually do their jobs, they might not need to have them after all. The problem is a large number of senators this year simply did not understand what the job entailed.
