Record – 22-7, 13-3 CAA
Top performer – M’Kaela White. While Bryn Recker and others played tremendously all season, White was a dominant presence. The 6-foot-4-inch junior led the team in blocks and ranked second in kills. She’s going to be critical next season.
Best moment – JMU raced out to a 17-3 start and 9-0 mark in CAA play before stumbling a few times down the stretch. It was an impressive start to the season, and the Dukes looked like the clear CAA favorite until the final weeks of the season.
Worst moment – Falling short in the CAA title game to Hofstra. The match went five sets, and the Pride beat the Dukes 15-10 in the final set.
Season summary – Lauren Steinbrecher has built something special in Harrisonburg. JMU volleyball is in a great spot under Steinbrecher, and contending for CAA titles is the norm. A 22-7 record and 13-3 mark in CAA play is a solid season.
