June 21, 2011

IOWA CITY, Iowa – University of Iowa women’s soccer sophomore Alex Melin was named to this week’s Women’s Premier Soccer League Team of the Week. The recognition comes after last week’s performance in her club team win.

The Verona, Wisc. native found the net once and played a dominant role throughout the midfield in the Madison 56er’s 3-2 win over Eclipse Select. Melin has recorded two goals in two games with the Madison 56ers (2-0-0).

The Hawkeye standout will compete in one more game with her club team before traveling to Europe to play on the U.S. Youth Soccer U19 Select team for two weeks.

During her freshman season at Iowa, Melin started all 20 matches of the season in the midfield. She posted three goals and tallied an assist for 7 points.
