AMHERST -- Winners of five in a row and 11 out of their last 12 matches, the Tufts volleyball team's run came to an end on Saturday afternoon against a determined Williams College team in the semi-final round of the NESCAC Tournament hosted by Amherst College. The Ephs (26-7) advanced to the final with a 3-0 victory over the Jumbos, and will play Amherst College for the conference title on Sunday.

Williams earned a 3-0 win over Tufts for the second time of the season, as the Ephs took victories of 30-20, 30-26 and 30-21.
