After beating Mount Holyoke 15-5 on Wednesday, April 15, the women’s lacrosse team could not muster the win on Saturday in Medford. The 12th-ranked Tufts team edged the Jeffs 11-10 in overtime. The loss drops Amherst to 4-5 in conference play, while the Jumbos improve to 6-3.

“OT games are always hard ones to lose, but that’s the story of the NESCAC this year,” said tri-captain Meghan Mill ’15. “We’ve had several one-goal games, which is a testament to the tight competition in the conference.”

After a tough mid-week loss to Connecticut College on Tuesday, April 7, the Amherst women’s lacrosse team rallied for a heart-stopping senior day win against Colby. The team now stands at 8-4 overall on the season and 4-4 in the NESCAC conference. Just three games remain in the regular season, including two key conference match-ups against Tufts and Trinity.

Junior Rachel Passarelli netted the game-winner with one second remaining in the second overtime period to bring the game to its final score of 9-8.

After a week of rest, Amherst women’s lacrosse came up short on Saturday against No. 4 Middlebury on March 28. The loss moves Amherst to 1-3 in the conference. The Panthers took the lead early, putting Amherst down 3-0 at 13:44. A probing attack paid off at 12:19 when Rachel Pasaraelli ’16 put one away, cutting the deficit to 3-1, where it would remain until halftime.

After their fourth-place finish at the NESCAC championships, the Amherst women’s swim and dive team sent seven swimmers to compete in 14 events in Shenandoah, Texas for the NCAA Division III championships.

Men’s swim and dive were runners-up in the 2015 NESCAC championships Feb. 20-22. The team had five first-place finishes and set one pool record and two school records to finish the meet with 1,579 points. Fifteen swimmers will be competing in NCAA regionals next weekend.

One year after their 2014 second-place finish at NESCACs, the Amherst women’s swim team fought hard over three days to take fourth at this year’s conference championships.

Amherst men’s and women’s swim and dive both traveled to Williams on Jan. 10. Unfortunately, neither team could pull out a win. The losses drop the men to 4-1 and the women to 3-2 on their seasons.

The men suffered a hard 156-78 loss against their archrivals. Amherst’s lone diver Asher Lichtig ’16 won the 1-meter with a score of 312.67 and earned second place in the 3-meter with a 285.00. Senior captain Connor Sholtis finished first and second for the Jeffs in the 100-yard and 200-yard freestyles respectively.
