AMHERST, MA - The Amherst College women's squash team completed a 4-0 weekend this afternoon with a 6-3 win over Franklin and Marshall in the 2009 Smith/Mt. Holyoke Invitational. The Jeffs extended their winning streak to four games, all this weekend, which also includes victories over Colby, William Smith and Wellesley.

Amherst served as a host for the annual Smith/Mt. Holyoke tournament once again this season, and improved to an amazing 9-2 in home matches this season with the four wins. Against the Diplomats, Amherst top seed Alexandra Dalglish (Fort Washington, PA) dropped her match, before Amherst swept the two through six matches and the number eight match for the win.

Hayley Milbourn (Baltimore, MD), Anna Scheidt (Fort Lee, NJ), Caitlin Demkin (Warren, NJ), Melissa Moulton(Oreland, PA) and Megan Clower (Bryn Mawr, PA) each posted 4-0 individual records during the weekend with 3-0 shutouts this afternoon.

In the Lord Jeffs' six wins against the Diplomats, Amherst did not drop a single game along the way. Amherst will look to carry momentum off of this weekend into next week's NESCAC Tournament at Trinity College. Match-ups for the conference tournament are not yet set.
