HARRISONBURG, Va. -- James Madison softball senior catcher Kierstin Roadcap is no longer on the Dukes' roster.

In a statement emailed to WHSV Tuesday, a JMU athletics spokesperson said "Kierstin Roadcap has been removed from the JMU softball roster due to a violation of team rules." The university did not specify as to what the exact violation was.

In a statement posted to her Facebook page, Roadcap said "After three extremely successful years in college, I fell short in the classroom. Finishing SCHOOL strong is way more important than a game at any level will ever be."

Roadcap has been a mainstay in JMU's lineup over the last three years. She has 153 career starts to her name to go along with a .278 batting average and 19 home runs. Roadcap is a local product from Turner Ashby High School.
