HARRISONBURG, Va. -- University of Michigan women's lacrosse head coach Jennifer Ulehla was one of six people inducted into the James Madison University Athletics Hall of Fame on Friday night (Nov. 15).
In eight seasons at the helm of the program (1995-2002), Ulehla led the Dukes to three Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) championships, six NCAA Tournament appearances and the program's lone NCAA Final Four showing, in 2000.
Ulehla produced 13 All-Americans, including five first-team honorees, one National Midfield Player of the Year, one Honda Broderick Award nominee and one Tewaaraton Trophy Award Top 5 finalist. She was named the CAA Coach of the Year in 1995 and 2000.
Ulehla's former player, Jess Marion (1997-2000), who helped lead the Dukes to the national semifinals in 2000, was also inducted into the Hall of Fame alongside Ulehla. Ulehla helped guide Marion to IWLCA National Midfielder of the Year honors as a senior in 2000.
Ulehla and the Wolverines will begin the program's inaugural season on Feb. 22, 2014 at Villanova and will play their home opener on Feb. 28 against Marquette at Oosterbaan Fieldhouse.
