WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Middlebury College softball team’s season came to an end with three losses at NESCAC West rival Williams this past weekend. The Panthers finished at 21-11, 5-7 in league play.
The Panthers entered the weekend with a chance to qualify for the NESCAC playoffs, but almost certainly needed to sweep the first-place Ephs (29-8, 11-2). Instead, Amherst (23-10, 7-5) became the second NESCAC West team in the four-team league championship tournament.
