Quoting Coach Baker
“It was very exciting to see three student-athletes score their first goal as Hawkeyes. Our win against Creighton was a combined effort and we played as a team. It was great to see everything come together. This will be a hard week for us. We have three special seniors (Britta Vogele, Margit Vogele and Kitty Montgomery) who are training and competing for the last time in Black and Gold. Britta has left a legacy that will be hard for any Iowa goalkeeper to follow. Kitty has had a tough senior year, but her leadership qualities will be missed. It was great to to see Margit be able to play with her sister for a year. Margit battled through a lot of injuries and was able to have a successful senior year. Northern Iowa and Iowa State will provide us with intense competition and we look forward to ending the season with two in-state rivals.”
