Record – 6-12, 2-4 CAA

Top performer – Lindsay Gippe. The senior led the team in points with 18 despite being a defender.

Best moment – Beating Richmond 4-3. This win capped off a four-game stretch when JMU was 2-2 with its two losses coming in relatively competitive showings against ranked teams.

Worst moment – Falling 8-1 to Delaware in the CAA Tournament. JMU opened the season ranked 17th nationally, but the Dukes struggled all season and couldn’t overcome an injury to Miranda Rigg. It was a rocky year that ended with an embarrassing loss.

Season summary – This was the first season since 2004 that the Dukes won fewer than nine games. It was a disappointing year for Christy Morgan and company.
