IOWA CITY – The Iowa women’s soccer team announced today that six players will join the program and continue their education at the University of Iowa next fall. Lindsey Boldt, Kim Lewis, Jamie Maltman, Katie Mulvahill, Ashley Schlueter and Sarah Stephenson will become student-athletes in the Hawkeyes’ class of 2007. The class includes players from four states including Wisconsin (2), Colorado (2), Illinois (1) and Minnesota (1).
“I am very excited about the recruiting class of 2007,” said Iowa Head Coach Carla Baker. “The experience and work ethic that they all bring to the classroom and the field is outstanding. I am really looking forward working with each of these student-athletes.”
Boldt, a goalkeeper from Wauwatosa, WI, recorded ten shutouts and stopped 46 shots, while leading Wauwatosa High School to a state runner-up finish in 2003 with an 18-3-1 record. As a junior, Boldt was a second team all-conference selection after she posted .45 goals against average. During her freshman and sophomore campaigns, she was recognized as an all-conference honorable mention selection.
Lewis, a defender from Colorado Springs, CO, was a first team all-city, all-league Metro 4A and honorable mention all-state selection in 2003. The team MVP and captain was a three-year varsity starter at Cheyenne Mountain HS, where she scored 16 goals and tallied 11 assists as a defender. Lewis also played on the National Champion 3-on-3 team in 2001 and was the team captain of the Pikes Peak Premier Gold club team.
Maltman, a midfielder from Winnetka, IL, was a member of the 2003 Chicago Sun Times all-area first team after leading New Trier HS to the State Championship with a 28-0-2 record. Maltman also has been active on the Illinois ODP team since 1998 and was the team captain in 2003.
Mulvahill, a midfielder/forward from Minneapolis, MN, was named one of Minnesota’s top 20 players by the Star Tribune this year. Over her career at Benild-Saint Margaret’s HS, the four-year starter led the team to a 60-14-9 record, while tallying 73 career points (35 goals, 38 assists). She was an all-state selection as a senior and played in the 2003 Soccer Express Senior Classic All-Star Game in 2003. Mulvahill also led the St. Croix Magnuson club team to a State Championship in 2002.
Schlueter, a midfielder from Aurora, CO, was a first team all-league honoree as a junior and a second team selection as a freshman. She was the team captain of Rangeview HS as a senior and over her career she tallied 25 assists and scored 10 goals. In addition, Schlueter was a member of the U-14, U-16 and U-18 teams that all won the Colorado State Cup.
Stephenson, a midfielder from Middleton, WI, played only for the Capital Elite club team the past three seasons. The team was Wisconsin’s first club team to play year round, competing against Division I competition from around the Midwest. In 2003 and 2004, Stephenson led the team to the Wisconsin State Championship. In 2001 and 2002, she helped lead the team to state runner-up finishes. In her lone year at Middleton HS as a freshman, she scored 22 goals on the season, including six goals in a single game.
“With this class, we now have good depth and I am looking forward to the upperclassmen setting an example for this young class by showing them how to compete and prepare them for the games this fall,” said Baker.
