This past weekend, the Amherst College women’s cross country team traveled to Middletown, Connecticut to compete in the 2015 NESCAC cross country championship.

The team looked to build upon its third place finish in the race last year. While Amherst could only manage fourth place out of the 11-team field, the team’s performance indicated that the team would be in good hands for the next few years.

The Amherst College field hockey team finished the week with a victory in the first round of the NESCAC tournament, trumping archrival Williams, 2-1, in an exciting overtime win.

Prior to the post-season tournament, the Jeffs clinched four regular season wins in the last two weeks, which helped to gain momentum for the playoffs. These wins include a blowout homecoming victory over Wesleyan.

The Amherst College football team pushed its win streak to 17 games, a program record, after two wins over Wesleyan and Tufts in the last two weeks. The Jeffs beat Little Three rival Wesleyan on homecoming weekend, 27-18, and notched a 32-7 win on the road over Tufts on Halloween.
