IOWA CITY – The National Field Hockey Coaches Association announced Tuesday that Iowa Hawkeye seniors Sarah Dawson and Barb Weinberg were both named first team all-American. It is the first time Iowa has had more than one first team member since 1996, when Diane DeMiro and Kristin Holmes were honored.
Dawson, a forward from Berlin, NJ, scored a career-high 34 points off 12 goals and 10 assists. She led the team in all offensive categories and was a first team all-Big Ten selection this year. Dawson had three game-winning goals on the season and served as the pusher on the offensive corner unit.
Weinberg, a goalkeeper from Louisville, KY, earns all-America honors for the second-consecutive season. She was a second team NFHCA all-American last year. Weinberg is a three-time first team all-Big Ten pick and had a .793 save percentage this year.
“We are thrilled to have two first team representatives this year,” Iowa Head Coach Tracey Griesbaum said. “Both Sarah and Barb had excellent senior seasons and, along with classmates Tammy Leister, Margot McMahon and Lauren Stiver, were a big part of our success this year.”
