Last Friday, Sept. 29, Lehigh hosted the Paul Short Classic brown division 6k race. Amherst claimed fourth place out of the 20 schools in the Division II/III league. The meet is one of the largest in the nation, with 14 races and over 6,000 athletes coming from both college and high school.

The course was a challenging one for the runners, with grass throughout and a hilly terrain.

The Amherst men’s golf team embraced the stakes this weekend at the NESCAC Fall Qualifier hosted by Trinity College. They managed to clinch the last qualifying spot for the Spring NESCAC Championships, in which only the top four teams compete for the conference championship and the potential for a shot at a national championship later in the year.

Last week, the Amherst volleyball team split a pair of road conference matches against Conn. College and Wesleyan before besting Stevens Institute of Technology in an out-of-conference affair. They have a current record of 11-4.

The Mammoths entered last Friday’s tilt with the Camels boasting a six-game win streak, but the hosts quickly halted any momentum Amherst carried into the match, winning the first set 25-20.
