When the Amherst women arrived at the George A. Kendall Squash Center at Trinity on Feb. 7, they were greeted by some of the fiercest competition in college-level squash. The home-team and 10-time reigning NESCAC champions the Bantams dominated the tournament and capped off their performance with a 9-0 championship win over Williams.

The Amherst women’s track and field team traveled to Boston University for Valentine Invitational — their last regular season meet of the winter — last Friday afternoon, where they performed well amongst a talented pool of Division I, II and III schools, as well as independent and semi-professional runners.

In the sprint events, first-year Julia Asin finished in a team-high 140th place in the 200-meter dash, among 237 other women competitors, with a time of 26.83 seconds. Senior Victoria Hensley finished close behind, coming in at 27.43 seconds, placing her in 173rd place.

With two big wins over conference opponents this weekend, the Amherst men’s basketball team solidified their number two seed going into the NESCAC tournament next Saturday. Friday night saw a shootout in LeFrak when Amherst took down a talented 14-9 Middlebury team, 83-70. This key win was followed up by a successful purple and white senior day, when Amherst took on Hamilton in a low-scoring, defensive battle, ultimately defeating the Continentals, 65-53.

The men’s ice hockey team had one of their best weekends of the year, defeating NESCAC rivals Tufts and Connecticut College at Orr Rink on successive days. These victories secured a winning league record of 7-6-3 for the purple and white.

The Amherst women’s basketball team had no trouble getting back on track after its devastating first home loss to NESCAC rival Tufts at the end of last week. This week, the purple and white powered past both Middlebury and Hamilton to finish out the regular season with a nearly perfect 23-1 record overall.

Up in Middlebury, Vermont, the squad was able to get off to an early, sizeable lead with help from junior Ali Doswell, who scored a whopping 16 points in the first 20 minutes.

This Saturday, Feb. 13, selected members of the men’s track and field team competed in Boston University’s Valentine Invitational, a largely Division I competition. The Boston meet was also attended by semi-professional and independent runners, making for large, hugely talented heats and overall race pools.

The Amherst women’s ice hockey team heads into its senior weekend with plenty of momentum after crushing Salem State 10-0 last week and then sweeping Hamilton in two big wins over the weekend.
