Coming off a Final Four appearance in the 2021-22 season, the Amherst women’s basketball team opened their season with two wins this past weekend. In their tip-off tournament, the Mammoths put on a clinic, first beating local rival Springfield College 54-50 before besting Rowan College 57-50.
Dani Valdez ’22 ended her collegiate basketball career with a variety of honors and awards. Staff writer Maya Reiner ’25 sat down with Valdez to talk about her career and reflect on what got her to this point.
Despite their season ending against the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater on Thursday, the Mammoths made the most of their first season back from the Covid hiatus and have much to look forward to in the next few years after their miraculous Final Four run.
Nine different members of the women’s swim and dive team achieved All-American honors at nationals over spring break. The Mammoths brought home 13 All-America accolades, four of which were first-team finishes.
Nine track athletes competed at the Division III National Championships during the first weekend of spring break, representing their school across a diverse set of events.
The women’s basketball team took on SUNY Polytechnic Institute and St. John Fisher College in the Rounds of 64 and 32, winning both games in well-fought matches. The Mammoths are off to the Sweet 16 for the first time since their Covid-shortened 2019-20 season.
After their strong finishes in the Summers and Kurtz Cups, Callie DeLalio ’24 and Adam Lichtmacher ’23 represented Amherst in the College Squash Association’s National Individual Tournaments.
