Led by two goals from senior attacker and tournament Outstanding Player Mary Kate Lomady (Abington), 11th-ranked James Madison (15-3) won its second straight Colonial Athletic Association championship with an 8-6 victory over top-seeded Towson (11-7) at Johnny Unitas Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The second-seeded Dukes, who earned their eighth CAA championship, claimed the CAA’s automatic berth into the NCAA Tournament. JMU earned the No. 8 seed and will host Princeton Saturday (May 14) at 1 p.m. in the first round of the 16-team NCAA Tournament at the JMU Lacrosse Complex.
Lomady scored four goals with two assists in the Dukes’ two games.
“I was really surprised,” said Lomady. “This award belongs to my teammates. I am nothing without them. I feel we are more in sync now than we have been all year and we are peaking at the right time.”
Annie Brophy (Archbishop Carroll) added a goal and an assist for JMU. Goalie Alex Menghetti (Penncrest) earned the win in the nets.
For Towson, Kelly Custer (Sun Valley) had a goal and four draw controls.
