The Amherst men’s lacrosse team had another successful week, snagging a victory over a higher-ranked Tufts squad on Saturday afternoon. With the win, the Mammoths stand at 7-1 in league action with only two weeks to go until the NESCAC tournament.

The seventh-ranked team in the nation, Amherst has handled the NESCAC with ease so far this season, taking down every opponent apart from No. 4 Wesleyan.

Last Tuesday’s comfortable win over Conn. College was good preparation for the weekend, when Amherst took on the No. 3 team in the nation: Tufts.

It was Little III week in the world of NESCAC lacrosse — both the men’s and women’s teams took on contests against Wesleyan and Williams. On the men’s side, Amherst fell to the Wesleyan Cardinals by just one goal in a heated Wednesday matchup in Middletown, Connecticut.

In the contest between the No. 4 Cardinals and No. 7 Mammoths, neither team took a dominant lead at any point in the 60 minutes.

After a disappointing NESCAC campaign in 2017, the Amherst men’s lacrosse team kicked off this spring season with a dominant 22-7 win over the Colby Mules.

Sophomore Colin Minicus started his season right where he left off last year after being named NESCAC Rookie of the Year.

Against Colby, Minicus led Amherst in scoring with nine points, tallying five goals and four assists.

A home matchup for the Mammoths, Amherst ran onto Pratt Field clad in its all-white uniforms with visible confidence.

This past Saturday, the Amherst men’s lacrosse team routed NESCAC rival Bates in a home matchup on Pratt Field that doubled as the team’s senior day.

It was an impressive weekend for the Doswell sisters and the rest of the Amherst women’s basketball team in the first round of NESCAC tournament last Saturday in LeFrak. The purple and white trampled over Bates in a decisive 82-29 victory in the quarterfinal game, in which Ali Doswell ’17 achieved her 1000th career point and sister Meredith Doswell ’17 put away 22 points to lead the team to the next round.

The Amherst College field hockey team fell short to top-seeded Bowdoin this Saturday, in a difficult NESCAC semifinal matchup at the Polar Bears’ home turf in Brunswick, Maine.

After taking down Williams with an exciting 2-1 overtime win in the first round of the NESCAC tournament last Saturday, the Jeffs were excited and prepared to face the No.1 seed in the tournament.

The Amherst College field hockey team spent the weekend in Maine, where the team matched up first against Colby on Saturday and then against Bates the next day. Ranked No. 14 entering the weekend, the purple and white fell short to the lower-ranked Mules in a frustrating and heartbreaking loss that dropped them to a 3-4 record in NESCAC play.

The next day, the Jeffs were able to bounce back to defeat the Bobcats in a shutout win. Their record now stands at 8-4 overall and 4-4 in the NESCAC.
