WILLIAMSTOWN, MA-The Amherst College men's track team raked in a 17th-place finish at Saturday's New England Division III Championships, hosted by eventual landslide winner Williams College. The Jeffs collected nine team points in all.

Sophomore Janak Chandrasoma (Pasadena, CA) placed seventh in the 200 meter dash, and first-year barnstormer Nathaniel Mahlberg (Madison, WI) followed up with a seventh-place finish in the 110 meter hurdles. The relay teams, typically an Amherst strength, paced the squad through the event. The 4x100 meter relay team notched a seventh-place time, and the 4x400 meter relay team came through for a sixth-place mark.

The Jeffs will conclude their regular season on Saturday and Sunday, when they head to Northeastern University for the Open New England Championships.
