Freshman forward Caitlin McCurdy was named Co-Offensive Player of the Week with Michigan State’s Inge Kaars Sijpestijn today. It is McCurdy’s second-consecutive weekly Big Ten honor.
McCurdy picked up the accolade for her game-winning overtime goal in Iowa’s 2-1 win over Indiana last weekend. The No. 11 Hawkeyes handed the eighth-ranked Hoosiers their second loss of the season and snapped their ten-game winning streak. The win improved Iowa’s conference record to 3-2 and gave Indiana their first Big Ten loss.
The Mountain Top, PA, native leads the Hawkeye offense with ten goals, three game-winning goals, 26 points and 59 shots. She is tied with senior Debbie Birrell with six assists. McCurdy has scored at least one point in nine of Iowa’s 15 games this season.
