What’s your background in sports?
Last Thursday, men’s basketball (7-0) routed Fitchburg State 109-41. On Saturday, they defeated Wesleyan 80-65.
In the 133rd annual “Biggest Little Game in America”, Amherst opened up a 17-point halftime lead and never looked back, defeating Williams (5-4, 5-4 in the NESCAC) 14-45. The Ephs and Mammoths played an exciting first quarter in which both offenses were able to move the ball effectively.
Last Saturday, men’s soccer lost to Elizabethtown 1-2 in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Williams opened the scoring in the contest when Andrew Mathew ’20 launched a throw in 30 yards out to the left of Elizabethtown goalie Brian Gately.
No. 5 women’s soccer (17-1-2, 9-0-1 in the NESCAC) advanced past the first and second rounds of the NCAA Div.
From 2009 to 2012, James Wang ’12 was an instrumental part of the men’s basketball team’s success, leading the way as a three-time All-American and the fourth leading scorer in Eph history. Six years later, both the sport and the College still remain influential to his life.
Men’s Ice Hockey
Men’s ice hockey finished 14-11-1 (9-8-1 in the NESCAC) and lost to Trinity in the NESCAC Semifinals, the third trip to the semifinals in the last six seasons. Head Coach Bill Kangas returns after taking a sabbatical last year.

Why the College?
Last Saturday, men’s cross country placed second and women’s cross country placed third at the NCAA New England Regionals at Bowdoin. On a chilly, windy, November morning, the women took on the spectacular 6k NCAA Div.
