UNC women's lacrosse loses to James Madison, ends run at NCAA Final Four

After this season, it’ll be hard for the second-seeded North Carolina women’s lacrosse team to forget James Madison.  The Dukes started and ended the Tar Heels' season in 2018. On Feb. 10, North Carolina's season began with a double overtime loss to the team, a matchup that was as close as it could be. And on Friday — after 20 games played out since then — JMU took down UNC again, this time a 15-12 loss in the NCAA Final Four to move on to the national championship.
