Nationally ranked No. 6 Amherst College defeated visiting Hamilton College 9-0 in a New England Small College Athletic Conference match played in Amherst, Mass., on April 21.
The match was played indoors due to wet conditions. Hamilton's Deborah Barany '11 and Amelia Mattern '12 put up a fight at second flight doubles before the pair fell short of a victory by an 8-5 score.
Amherst (14-1 overall, 6-0 NESCAC) won the top three singles flight matches in straight sets. The last three singles matches were decided by pro sets similar to doubles play.
The Continentals (1-12, 0-5) travel to Connecticut College for another NESCAC match on Saturday, April 25.
