I withdrew from the AAS Presidential Race after receiving information which I did not solicit and which I did not attempt to use. If I were a good politician, I would tell you that I resigned so that I could cooperate fully with the Judiciary Council investigation — but I am not a particularly good politician. I resigned from the race because I am frustrated with the tone of our discourse and disappointed in the character of our governance.

The 11th-ranked women’s lacrosse team dominated Tufts on last Saturday’s Senior Day, besting the Jumbos 12-4.
The Jeffs were 5-for-6 in the first half, holding a 5-0 lead at the break. Krista Zsitvay ’14 started things off with a free-position goal at the 28:14 mark.

Marta Randall ’13 followed up with another free-position conversion just over a minute later. Zsitvay scored again at the 17:06 off an assist from junior Hillary Densen.

After a doubleheader victory over local rival Western New England Univ. last Wednesday, the women’s softball team completed a weekend sweep of Hamilton to remain undefeated in NESCAC West (6-0). The Jeffs are now 27-1 with just two weeks left in regular season play.

What seemed impossible a mere few months ago is now days away from fruition: an NBA regular season, albeit a condensed version, is nearing completion as the month of April winds down. Despite suffering through a lockout that nearly wiped away the NBA for a year, fans have been treated to perhaps one of the most enthralling regular seasons in recent history. A plethora of subplots have emerged and faded over the course of the past few months, and this trend shows no sign of abating as the grind of the season comes to a close in anticipation of the playoffs.


After a successful fall campaign, the women’s golf team began their spring season with an impressive win at the 8th Annual Vassar Invitational this past weekend. The two-day tournament, held at the Dutchess Golf and Country Club in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., featured 11 teams, including NESCAC rivals Williams and Middlebury.

The men’s and women’s track and field teams continued to build up towards their upcoming championship meets last weekend, traveling across town to participate in the Univ. of Mass Spring Meet.

The competition featured several Division I teams, including the host UMass contingent. Despite the stiff Division I competition coupled with a bevy of other strong squads, the Jeffs held their own.

While the women finished 11th out of 15 teams with 21 points, it was a solid effort highlighted by the outstanding performances of Naomi Bates ’14 and Keri Lambert ’13.

Mired in a nightmarish slump, the men’s lacrosse team suffered a brutal setback against Tufts last weekend, losing 15-5 to the No. 5 Jumbos at Bello Field on Saturday. Back on the field three days later, the Jeffs then endured a gut-wrenching 5-4 defeat against Conn. College on Tuesday. The losses dropped Amherst’s record to 8-5 (4-4 NESCAC), marking another disappointment in an underachieving season.
