TOWSON, Md. - Towson wrapped up its conference schedule Sunday morning, falling 7-0 to a tough James Madison team that entered the match 9-5 overall this season.

The Tigers (11-12, 2-4 CAA) could not gain any momentum from the Dukes, who won all three doubles matches and all six singles matches en route to the victory.

Towson Head Coach Doug Neagle juggled his singles lineup with sophomore standout Nani Lizana sidelined with a stomach virus after competing in doubles play.

Freshman Cailey Easdale entered the singles lineup as a result, and despite falling 6-1 and 6-4 to Ruxandra Andriescu, Easdale played her opponent tough. At 7-4 in singles play this season, Easdale is one of six Tigers with winning records in singles this season. 

Lizana and junior Andrea Samlin lost to Katherine Bulling and Michelle Nguyen in doubles play by a slim 8-7 margin, in a match that was won on an 8-6 breaker.

The Tigers will host Loyola Tuesday in the team's regular season finale at 3:30 p.m. before heading off to the Colonial Athletic Association Championships Apr. 19-22.
