The Big Ten All-Tournament team was announced at the conclusion of the championship game between Michigan and Indiana on Sunday afternoon. Lauren Pfeiffer, a freshman midfielder for the Hawkeyes, was among the 11 players selected to the team.
The Mt. Laurel, NJ, native scored a penalty stroke goal in Iowa’s game against Michigan in the first round of the tournament. In the second half of the contest, the Hawkeyes earned a penalty stroke when Michigan goalie Beth Riley used her body to cover up an Iowa shot. Pfeiffer scored her eighth season goal on her first collegiate penalty stroke.
