Men’s tennis serving up wins

April 25, 2013

In what has been a season of ups and downs, the Continentals emerged from this week more resolute and more confident. The men’s tennis team endured an arduous schedule of five games in eight days. This stretch began with a difficult loss to Amherst,  a team perennially ranked in the top 25 of Division III, on April 13 at the Margaret Bundy Scott Field House. Then, in a serious test of endurance, the Conts faced off against the Wesleyan Cardinals several hours later. Captain Jon Franzell ’13 dominated the opening match, winning in straight sets, and sophomore James Oliver recovered from losing the first set to win his match, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4. First-year Ben Stern took command of his singles match from the very beginning and cruised to an easy victory. The meeting went down to the wire, but Hamilton enjoyed little luck in its doubles matches and the tight matchup ended in favor of Wesleyan, 5-4.

Softball steps up to bat

April 25, 2013

Last Thursday afternoon, the Hamilton women’s softball team added two additional wins to their overall record in a double-header against SUNY Potsdam. They had an impressive 5-0 win over the non-NESCAC competitor in the first game, followed by an 8-5 win later in the day. April 18 was not only significant because it was senior day, but also because these were the first two games of the season that the team was able to play at home due to previous postponements and inclement weather conditions. The wins were all the more meaningful because, as Coach Spicer explained, “It’s been a long time since the seniors have had a senior day and won the game.” Two additional victories against Cazenovia College on April 24 boosted softball’s overall record to 11-18, while their NESCAC record remains at 1-8.

Solidarity in sports

April 18, 2013

The end of a race is supposed to be a joyous time. Almost any athlete you ask will tell you that there is no better feeling than finishing. Whether it is something as short as one length of a pool or as long as a marathon, that feeling of accomplishment is unrivaled in the world of athletics. So when that feeling is taken away and quickly replaced by terror there is nothing worse.
