Did You Know?
  JMU is the only program in the CAA to have qualified for the league tournament every season from 2002-10.  (Prior to 2002 every league team participated in the tournament, but qualification has been limited to four or six teams since then.) 

CAA Standings:
 The Dukes finished tied for sixth place with Northeastern but did not qualify for the six-team CAA Tournament due to JMU's regular-season loss to the Huskies.
     William and Mary finished first in the CAA Standings.  As the top seed the Tribe will host the CAA Tournament on Nov. 3, 4 and 6. 
     VCU was second and George Mason, Delaware and Hofstra tied for third to earn the other spots in the CAA Tournament, along with sixth-place Northeastern.
     Only three points separated the number three through eight teams in the final eague standings. 

Julien Wins Gold
Former JMU player Christina "Corky" Julien ('10) and Team Canada won the Pan American Games gold medal on Oct. 27 in Guadalajara, Mexico.
     Canada beat Brazil 4-3 on penalty kicks after regulation and overtime play ended in a 1-1 tie.  Canada's Christine Sinclair scored the tying goal in the 88th minute to force overtime.
    Julien played every minute of regulation and the two overtime periods but was not among the five Canada players in the first and deciding round of PKs.
