Since 1988, Williams had emerged victorious at the annual Little Three Championship, a tri-meet between Amherst, Williams and Wesleyan. The Mammoths made history on Saturday when they defeated the Ephs by a score of 25-36 to break their archrivals’ 29-year winning streak.

Williams hosted the meet on their home course at Mt. Greylock High School, but due to construction, the course was different from years past.

However, it was the same course the harriers traversed at the Purple Valley Invitational in September.

Last week, the Amherst College men’s soccer team played three tough matches, with two of the three battles going into overtime. Recording two wins and one loss, the Mammoths are now 4-2-2 in NESCAC play and sit comfortably fourth in the league standings.

This past weekend, the Mammoths traveled to Maine for a doubleheader against Colby and Bates. Amherst suffered only their second loss of the season on Saturday, as the Mules managed to pull out a 2-1 overtime victory.

Continuing the momentum from their strong showing at the New England Regional Championship, Amherst men’s tennis had a great weekend at the MIT Invitational led by Zach Bessette ’19 and the doubles pair of Jayson Fung ’20 and Ethan Hillis ’21.

In the singles competition, Amherst represented three of the top fifteen seeds, with No. 5 seed Bessette, No. 11 Kevin Ma ’21 and No. 15 Sean Wei ’21. All three advanced to at least the round of 16, where they were joined by fellow Mammoth Nathan Kaplan ’20.

The Amherst College women’s volleyball team snapped a four-game losing streak this weekend with a NESCAC win over Williams.

Before facing off with Williams, however, the Firedogs endured two tough away losses against strong opponents: Clark University and Hamilton.

Against the Clark Cougars, Amherst played well in an evenly contested match, but dropped a tight first two sets and ultimately fell 3-1 (17-25, 21-25, 25-12, 20-25). In the third set, the Firedogs showed tenacity and grit to avoid the sweep.

Gibbs has spent his life pushing boundaries. He entered Amherst in 1959 as one of the only African Americans in his class. Then, Gibbs opted to pursue a career in international business, an unusual choice at the time for both an Amherst graduate and an African American. With this background, one might expect to hear a story of conflict and controversy. However, that is not Gibbs’ story. Instead, he attributes his success to hard work and quiet dedication, while his overwhelming gratitude and generosity is evident through a new scholarship he co-sponsors, the Asa J.

Empathy for others and a resolve to affect positive change define Anne Armstrong-Coben’s multifaceted career as a pediatrician. A political science major while at Amherst, Armstrong-Coben brought skills and traits that she picked up in her undergraduate career into medical school and beyond.

Margaret Stohl has had, to put it lightly, a varied career. She has been a high-profile creator of video games, young adult novels, and most recently, comic books. Armed with determination, Stohl creates fictional worlds with real spirit and enthusiasm. In the past few years, she has also embraced community outreach, most notably in helping to create YALLFest and YALLWest, the two largest youth and teen literature festivals in the county.
