Over the past month, the Amherst women’s swim and dive team competed in three meets. The eighth ranked women won two of the three meets, beating both Union and Connecticut College, falling only to archrival Williams.

The Amherst women’s track and field team enjoyed a successful interterm, kicking off their season with two major meets.
Although the team finished third in the Little Three Championship meet behind NESCAC rivals Williams and Wesleyan, the purple and white saw numerous promising individual performances. Wesleyan hosted the meet on Jan. 14, where Amherst tallied 72 points to Wesleyan’s 94 and Williams’ 169.

After playing only once in December, the Amherst men’s squash team’s schedule ramped up over interterm, with the purple and white taking on eight opponents in a span of less than two weeks. Having experienced both the highest of highs and the lowest of lows, Amherst now owns a disappointing record of 4-5 overall after going only 3-5 over their busy holiday period.

In the team’s first match since its 9-0 rout of Brandeis in the first week of December, the purple and white fell victim to a 9-0 sweep by NESCAC rival Middlebury on Jan. 11.

When it comes to adaptations, staying true to the source material is very difficult. Fortunately, “Sherlock” has always been good at navigating that particular problem, successfully translating Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories and characters in a modern way while adding its own particular twists. However, with Season 4, “Sherlock” seems to have fallen into the problem of spending so much time expanding the show that it leaves behind what made it so entertaining in the first place.

The men’s track and field team enjoyed a successful interterm break, placing second at both the Little III Championship and the Pioneer Invitational Tournament.

The team opened the year at the Little III tournament, which was hosted by Wesleyan on Jan. 14. This is the third year that the meet has been held during the indoor track season, after being held during the outdoor track season prior to 2015.

Little III has a unique scoring system, as a team may only earn points for their first two finishers in each event.

With a full slate of games scheduled for the interterm period, the two-week period in mid-January seemed likely to define the mettle of this year’s edition of Amherst women’s squash. However, following a series of largely uncompetitive matches, in which the purple and white were both on the giving and receiving end of several blowouts, Amherst’s record stands at 5-5 with much still to be learned about the team.

This January, the Amherst men’s ice hockey team caught fire, posting seven impressive wins over both conference and non-conference rivals. Following a rare stretch of losses to NESCAC opponents before the break, the purple and white went on a revenge tour that saw 33 goals for and just 10 goals against.
