The Amherst women’s basketball team took down NESCAC rivals Colby and previously-undefeated Bowdoin in a pair of exciting victories this past Friday and Saturday to remain unbeaten this 2017-18 season.

A rambunctious home crowd in LeFrak Gymnasium Saturday afternoon against the Polar Bears helped make the improvement to 20-0 an especially exciting ordeal.
Amherst was first able to hold off the Mules during a Friday evening matchup to move to 5-0 in NESCAC play.

This week, the Amherst women’s hockey team returned to action and picked up two important wins against NESCAC rival Trinity to push the team’s overall record to 4-2.

In their first contest against the Bantams, the Mammoths used a dominant offensive performance to leave the ice with an impressive 6-2 win. Following a scoreless first period, Trinity was the first team to get on the board, scoring in the sixth minute of the second period during a power play stemming from an Amherst hooking penalty.
