The Amherst women’s tennis team traveled to Williams’ Hunt Tennis Courts on Saturday, Sept. 23rd, to battle longstanding archrival and perennial NESCAC power. The Mammoths, coming off a successful start to the season last weekend, seemed prepared to challenge the defending league champions in its first dual meet of the season (and only dual meet of the fall). However, the team fell short to the Ephs, 7-2, in a match that was closer than a casual glance at the scoreline would indicate.
