NESCAC

HARTFORD, CT – The Amherst College women’s squash team posted a 1-1 record on day two of the 2011 NESCAC Championships to move to 13-6 on the season. The Lord Jeffs will wrap up their tournament Sunday at 9 a.m. when they take on Hamilton College at tournament host Trinity.

Fourth-seeded Amherst kicked off its weekend with a 6-3 loss to fifth-seeded Bates, a team that the Lord Jeffs defeated by the same score earlier in the season. The Jeffs rebounded by earning an 8-1 win over eighth-seeded Bowdoin, matching the score they posted against the Polar Bears on Jan. 21.

In the day’s first match Amherst got wins in the two, three and four spots, but the rest belonged to Bates. Allie Dalglish ’11 (Fort Washington, PA) and Anne Piper ’13 (Bronxville, NY) earned 3-0 victories at No. 3 and No. 4, respectively, while Chandler Lusardi ’13 (New York, NY) got past her opponent in four games at No. 2.

Amherst had little trouble with Bowdoin, winning matches three through nine by a score of 3-0. Lusardi picked up another 3-1 victory in the No. 2 spot, with the Polar Bears earning their lone point in the No. 1 pairing.
