Martin competed in six games for the Hawkeyes this season. A forward from Lewis Center, Ohio, recorded three assists during her career at Iowa and was named Academic all-Big Ten after her junior season. The senior is now a candidate for the Big Ten’s Outstanding Sportsmanship award, given to one male and one female athlete at the end of the year.

“The Big Ten Sportsmanship award is a neat honor for Amanda,” Head Coach Ron Rainey said. “She has put a ton of hard work in at Iowa, and her attitude and work ethic throughout this season makes her a great honoree for the Hawks!”

DeMoss was the leading scorer for much of the season. A midfielder from St. Charles, Illinois, scored five goals and recorded three assists. Early in the season, DeMoss came off the bench to provide valuable minutes for Iowa.

“Leah had a fantastic freshmen year,” said Rainey. “We are looking forward to her development in the off season so she can take even greater strides this spring and have a tremendous impact as a sophomore.”
