The Amherst women’s basketball team improved to a perfect 6-0 record after going undefeated in two tries this week, topping Eastern Connecticut State University (ECSU) in an away matchup on Thursday before turning around and routing Farmingdale State University on Saturday.

The Mammoths went on the road on Thursday evening for the first time this season against the ECSU Warriors and returned with not just another victory, but with a milestone for head coach G.P. Gromacki as well. Gromacki, in his 11th year at the helm, achieved his 300th win at Amherst.

This routine is not daily, but it is familiar: I realize with a good amount of dread that for the last eight hours, I have had no social interaction with live human beings in my schedule. I’ll reach out to friends and try to set something up, but there will be one snag or another and nothing will end up working out (they’re busy, or not on campus, or they really want to focus on this essay, etc.). So I’ll try to work somewhere other than my room, hoping that just being around other people will be enough to soothe my extrovert cravings for companionship.

Continuing its winning ways, the Amherst women’s swimming and diving team knocked off Middlebury in the Mammoths’ first home meet of the season by a score of 167-122. It was an impressive victory for the 12th-ranked Mammoths, who will likely climb a few spots in the national rankings, as the Panthers had entered the meet ranked 15th in the nation.

The “It’s On Us” campaign was initiated in the fall of 2014 by the Obama administration and the White House Council on Women and Girls to increase awareness of and reduce sexual assault on campuses across America. The announcement was followed by celebrity endorsements, social media campaigns on the importance of consent and individual endorsements by universities.

This past weekend, the Amherst men’s squash team continued its undefeated campaign by defeating both Conn. College and Northeastern University in a round robin tournament hosted at the Mammoths’ home Davenport Courts. With the two wins, Amherst’s record now stands at 4-0.

Against the Camels, Amherst won all nine competitive matches as well as the exhibition court contest, sweeping seven of the 10 courts. The first-year class keyed the Mammoths’ victory, with first-years winning their matches in the first and third through sixth spots.

It was a big weekend for the Amherst men’s hockey team, as the Mammoths took on conference rivals Wesleyan and Trinity. Both games went into overtime, and Amherst came away from the weekend with two ties and now boasts a record of 2-1-3 overall and 0-0-3 in the NESCAC.

Amherst College filed an amicus brief on Sept. 7 supporting the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in a lawsuit filed against the university in 2011 by the family of Han Duy Nguyen, a doctoral student who died by suicide in 2009. The family is suing the institution, two professors and an associate dean, claiming that they did not do enough to help Nguyen even though they had known for months that he had ongoing mental health issues.
