MELBOURNE, Fla. – Lehigh opened up its spring break trip to Florida with a 6-1 loss to James Madison Monday afternoon.

In doubles play, Dwyer teamed with sophomore Allie Schwartz at first doubles, but the duo fell to Mary Napier and Anna Khoor 8-5, in what was the closest of three doubles matches.
Dwyer bounced back with a 7-5, 6-3 win over Napier at first singles, but James Madison captured straight set victories at the other five flights to seal the victory.
