The Mammoths first swept aside Wheaton before eking out a hard-fought win over Wesleyan in a Saturday doubleheader. On Sunday, Amherst notched another double-header sweep, this time against Hamilton and Skidmore.

This weekend, the Amherst women’s tennis team played against Wesleyan and Hamilton on Saturday, April 22 and Sunday, April 23. On Saturday, the 12th-ranked Mammoths fell to the sixth-ranked Cardinals 7-2, and on Sunday, the Amherst women celebrated senior day with a sweep of the Continentals. After the weekend, the Mammoths stand at 6-7 on the season and 4-3 in the NESCAC.

The Amherst women’s track and field team traveled to Trinity on Saturday, April 22 to compete in the Trinity College Invitational. Marking the final regular season meet before the postseason, the Mammoths had several first place finishes amongst strong competition.

In the 100-meter dash, Anna Buford ’20 and Katherine Hom ’19 finished back-to-back in 14th and 15th with times of 13.63 seconds and 14.11 seconds, respectively.

In the 200-meter dash, sophomore Rubii Tamen finished 10th with a time of 27.37 seconds.

Last weekend, the men’s track and field team traveled to Trinity to compete at the Trinity College Invitational. The unscored meet gave the Mammoths an opportunity to tuneup for next weekend’s NESCAC Championships, which will be hosted by Bowdoin.

The meet kicked off with Aziz Khan ’18 competing in the preliminary round of the 100-meter dash, where he qualified for the eight-person final with a time of 11.39 seconds. In the final, he matched his preliminary round time to place sixth overall.

The Amherst women’s lacrosse team collected a huge 9-6 victory this past Saturday against archrival Williams College, a crucial win as it secured the Mammoths a spot in the upcoming NESCAC tournament.

Although Amherst was on the attack for majority of the first half, an impressive performance from Williams goalie Margaret Draper kept the Mammoths at bay for large swathes of the game.

However, senior Claire Cagnassola opened the scoring a little less than ten minutes into the half, capitalizing on an assist from Annie Cohen ’19.
