In case (for some reason) you haven’t been following the world of Div. III women’s basketball, now would probably be a pretty good time to start. After all, with Trinity’s men’s squash team losing to Yale last weekend, the Amherst women’s basketball team may just hold the longest current streak in DIII sports (but don’t quote me on that).

The track and field teams competed in the Tufts Invitational Meet and a non-scoring meet at Wesleyan over winter break.


After three dual meets, the men’s swim team remains undefeated at 6-0 while the women stay strong at 5-1.


Despite losing its first four January matches, the men’s squash team managed to win its final four in impressive fashion.
The Jeffs began interterm action by dropping back-to-back contests to second-ranked Yale and 19th-ranked Bates, and their slide continued the following week against two more tough opponents, No. 14 Middlebury and No. 13 Brown.

The men’s hockey team has skated to an impressive start to the season, compiling a 12-3-1 record (9-1-0 NESCAC) to surge to the top of the conference standings. The Jeffs are currently tied with Bowdoin (8-2-2 NESCAC) in the race for the No. 1 seed, but Amherst holds two games in hand.

Before a 3-0 loss to Utica on Saturday, the Jeffs collected a 12-2-1 record in their first 15 games. The 25 points accumulated in that span marked the program’s highest point total through 15 games since the 1998-99 season.
