This Saturday, the Amherst women’s cross country team traveled to Lehigh University to compete against the largest pool of competition they’ve faced yet. The purple and white managed to beat out 30 other teams to place an impressive 12th at the Paul Short Invitational, which featured east coast schools from all divisions.

Amherst returned to the Paul Short Invitational for the first time since the 2014 season, where they cruised to a stellar fourth place out of 40 teams.

The Amherst men’s lacrosse team suffered a hard fought loss to Middlebury this past weekend in Vermont. They trailed by as many as seven points during the game, but clawed back in the final minutes to come within three goals of the Panthers.

Middlebury kicked off the scoring with three quick goals in the first quarter. Senior Kane Haffey interrupted this initial run on an assist from first-year attacker Evan Wolf. At the end of the first quarter, Amherst trailed 4-1.
