A Message from the Coach Welcome to JMU women’s soccer. As the program’s first and only head coach, I am extremely proud of the history, tradition and reputation we have built here. Our players excel in the classroom, on the field and ultimately in the real world. Our schedule is always among the toughest because good players deserve to test their talents against the best. JMU women’s soccer continues to be one of the top programs in Virginia, in the CAA, the Mid-Atlantic region and in the nation… that is always our goal. Nestled in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley, JMU boasts tranquility, safety and a community that is committed to JMU athletics. The university has established itself with national rankings in many academic categories and is always evolving to chase its goal of being the best undergraduate university in the nation. This is a very dynamic time to be associated with JMU women’s soccer. I hope you will join us for an exciting season of soccer. Sincerely yours,
Dave Lombardo Head Soccer Coach

The Essence of JMU Soccer • We tied a top three school, Maryland, 0-0, which showed how much heart we had. - Kelly Abt (‘15) • Watch “Bridesmaids” and popular YouTube videos and you’ll fit in! - Becky Sparks (‘14) • Whenever we go on away trips and someone on the team lives close, the parents will host a dinner. This is so enjoyable because we get to hang out and eat a home-cooked meal. It shows how dedicated everyone, including the parents, is to JMU soccer. It’s always a great time and relaxing. - Dana O’Brien (‘13) • When we were down 3-1 to Hofstra, we all fought hard and tied it 3-3 and won it 4-3 in overtime. To do something like that takes a lot of heart and a lot of spirit. - Katie Hyland (‘15) • Before each game, after the coaches give us a pregame talk, all the girls come together and say a chant that gets us pumped up for the game and reminds us that we are a team and a family. - Ellen Forrest (‘15) • We have a team donkey that the coach gives to the player who has done or said the dumbest thing. The donkey is passed around throughout the season and sometimes the coach is even the donkey recipient. - Stephanie Hamilton (‘15) • We sing and play funny games to get us through the 10-15 minute freezing cold ice baths required in preseason. - Olivia Tomoff (‘14) • We make many hilarious team videos. -- Sam Lofton (‘12)

The Best Non-Soccer Part of JMU • The school spirit. Everyone is so enthusiastic about JMU and truly believes it’s the best school in the world. It’s our own utopian world set apart from the real world. - Shannon Rano (‘15) • The food, people, and the beautiful views around campus. - Amalya Clayton (‘13)
