The Mammoths got off to a strong start, downing two ranked opponents before falling to both eighth-ranked Washington University in St. Louis and 14th-ranked Case Western Reserve University. Amherst, however, was not without success, as the team would see itself victorious over 13th-ranked Kenyon College and 15th-ranked Carnegie Mellon University. Jason Fung ’21 was undefeated on the third court over the whole trip, helping the Mammoths to a 4-2 record to begin their spring season.
