Senior Day:
  JMU seniors Casey Ancarrow, Kelsey MacDonald, Amanda Mathews, Rebecca McLouth and Nicole Stiles will be recognized prior to the Dukes' April 21 home game against ODU.

Season-High 16 Goals vs. Drexel: 
The 16 goals scored by JMU in its 16-9 win at Drexel on April 14 represented both a season high for the Dukes and a season-high goals allowed for the Dragons.  Drexel leads the CAA and ranks 10th in the NCAA in goals-against average (8.07).

     JMU's previous 2013 season high was 13 goals, on three occasions (13-8 home win over Fairfield on March 2, 13-12 win at Richmond on March 13 and 13-7 win at George Mason on March 27).`
     Drexel had held its previous seven opponents to single-digit scoring for an average of 7.1 per game.  The Dragons had allowed 10 or more goals only twice previously this season (14-10 home win over Villanova on March 6 and 14-8 loss at Maryland, Baltimore County on March 9).

Nearing Double-Digit Wins:  JMU is one win away from its fourth consecutive season with 10 or more victories.  The Dukes have recorded 10-win seasons 16 times in their history and 13 times in the last 18 years.  That includes four times (2007, 10, 11, 12) in current coach Shelley Klaes-Bawcombe's first six seasons with the Dukes.

Finley Honored by CAA:
  Sophomore midfielder Steph Finley (Media, Pa./Sacred Heart) was named CAA Player of the Week for the week ending April 14.

     She led the Dukes to a 9-8 triple-overtime win at Hofstra on April 12, as she scored a team-high four goals and led JMU with three ground balls.  She also had a game-high three caused turnovers.  Her four goals tied her career high.
     Finley played a key role in that comeback win, as the Dukes trailed by three goals late in the second half.  She tallied the team's first two goals in a run of three consecutive goals that tied the game in regulation and forced overtime.
     She scored twice while only taking three shots in a 16-9 victory at Drexel on April 14.  She also had a ground ball and a caused turnover in the match.

  JMU is receiving votes in both the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) and Inside Lacrosse polls this week.

Ancarrow Consistent on Attack:  Redshirt senior attacker Casey Ancarrow has scored at least two goals in 12 of JMU's 14 games.  In her career in a JMU uniform, she has a point in 69 of her 70 games.  That includes a goal in all four games she played as a true freshman in 2009, a goal or an assist in 20 games as a redshirt freshman in 2010, a goal in all 19 games in 2011, and a goal in the first 13 of her 14 games in 2012.  The only game she's without a point` is the April 13, 2012 game vs. William and Mary, in which she suffered a season-ending knee injury early in the first half.
    On April 14 at Drexel, in JMU's 14th game of the season, Ancarrow was held scoreless for the first time this season, but she tied her career high with three assists.

Healy Leads CAA Stats:  Sophomore goalkeeper Schylar Healy leads the CAA in saves (9.29 avg.) and save percentage (.481).  Among NCAA Division I goalies she's seventh in total saves (130), eighth in saves average and eighth in save percentage.
     Casey Ancarrow ranks third in the CAA in goals average (2.64) and fourth in points average (3.43).  She ranks 48th in the NCAA in goals average.

Dukes Top CAA in Shooting & Saves Percentages:  JMU leads CAA teams in shooting percentage (143-290, .493) and save percentage (131-140, .483).  (NOTE: These statistics are not tracked by the NCAA).
     JMU's season record for shooting accuracy is .486 (248-510) by the 2007 team.

Ancarrow Continues to Move Up:  With two goals and three assists last week, Casey Ancarrow now has career totals of 155 goals, 60 assists and 215 points.  She moved from sixth place to tied for fifth place on JMU's points list.  She shares the spot with Julie Martinez ('00).
