Jeffs Blanked by Top-Ranked Williams

April 12, 2003

AMHERST, MA - The Amherst College men’s tennis team fell to the No. 1 team in the nation, defending national champion Williams College, on the indoor courts at Amherst’s Coolidge Cage on Saturday. The visiting Ephs swept six singles and three doubles matches en route to the 7-0 win.

Amherst dropped to 6-2, while Williams rebounded from Thursday’s 6-1 loss at Middlebury College, which snapped a 53-match NESCAC winning streak for the Ephs. Prior to Thursday’s defeat, Williams’ last loss to a NESCAC opponent came against Amherst on April 23, 1994.

Amherst returns to action Thursday at 3 p.m. against visiting Tufts University.
