Dynamic doubles duo Jordan Brewer ’14 and Gabby Devlin ’14 seem to have lost little momentum over the summer.
After capturing the Div. III National double’s title last spring (and going undefeated throughout the fall and spring), the tandem started their fall campaign with the Stony Brook Women’s Tennis Classic’s flight ‘A’ doubles championship.

In a Div. I tournament no less, Brewer and Devlin went 4-0 over the weekend to add another piece of hardware to their already-impressive trophy case.


After capturing the NCAA crown last spring, the men’s tennis team enters the spring season as the No. 1-ranked team in the country, and after an undefeated fall, the Jeffs look ready to defend their title.

The Jeffs began last season by winning their first 17 matches, before falling to the Claremont-Mudd-Scripps team while on their spring break trip. Determined to rebound, the Jeffs closed their season with 12 straight wins, including upending the then top-ranked Middlebury Panthers to close out regular season play.

After one of the best seasons in program history, the men’s lacrosse has begun its 2012 season with two hard-fought wins over Colby and Bates. Last year, the Jeffs won 13 games straight en route to their best-ever 15 wins and also went 8-1 in NESCAC play. Led by senior captain Evan Redwood at attack, the Jeffs will look to build upon their national quarterfinal appearance in their first-ever NCAA tournament last year.

Although they’ve already played 22 regular season games, traveled to Las Vegas and back, won by 70 points in a single game and had two players eclipse the 1000-point barrier, the women’s basketball season is far from over.

And, even though they haven’t lost a game since Jan. 11, 2011 (41 games) or at home since Jan. 31, 2009 (58 games), this team’s success will be measured by what starts now. With two home games remaining before the NESCAC and NCAA tournaments, the Jeffs are about to see what they are really made of.

After sneaking by Colby last weekend to keep their perfect season alive, the women’s basketball team returned to their more dominant ways with two more double-digits NESCAC wins this week, beating Williams, 80-58, and Trinity, 66-44.

Despite a rowdy Williams’ student section and early full-court press from the Ephs last Wednesday, Amherst took the lead early on after a Shannon Finucane ’12 triple that put them up 7-6 just three minutes in.

In case (for some reason) you haven’t been following the world of Div. III women’s basketball, now would probably be a pretty good time to start. After all, with Trinity’s men’s squash team losing to Yale last weekend, the Amherst women’s basketball team may just hold the longest current streak in DIII sports (but don’t quote me on that).

The top-ranked women’s basketball team continued its dominant start with two more double-digit victories this week, rolling over Keene State, 88-33, and earning a hard-fought win over Emmanuel, 84-60. The wins pushed the Jeffs impressive home court win streak to 54 and consecutive victories to 30.

Senior Lem Atanga McCormick led the Jeffs against Keene State with 14 points and seven rebounds, while first-year Megan Robertson picked up her first collegiate double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds.
