Amherst Improves to 17-0; Jeffs to Wrap up Spring Trip Saturday

CLAREMONT, CA – The second-ranked Amherst College men’s tennis team improved to 17-0 on Friday with wins over Pierce College (6-3), Chapman University (8-1) and Concordia University of Irvine (8-1). The Lord Jeffs will wrap up their West Coast trip on Saturday with what should be a great battle against fourth-ranked Claremont.

Amherst went 8-1 in doubles play and posted a 14-4 singles record on Friday, with eight of its singles victories coming in straight sets. Last year’s Lord Jeffs returned from their spring break trip with a 12-7 record, but Amherst has been playing well from top to bottom in 2011.
