Lacasse Named Top-20 College Player to Watch

Sept. 22, 2011

IOWA CITY, Iowa. — University of Iowa freshman Cloe Lacasse was named one of the Big Ten Conference’s Top 20 College Players to Watch by Thursday. The Hawkeye newcomer is one of only two freshmen in the conference to make the top-20 cut.

Lacasse leads Iowa’s offensive efforts in its best start in program history at 8-0-1. The Sudbury, Ontario, native has scored 10 goals and tallied three assists. Lacasse has played a role in over a third of Iowa’s goals this season (31). In addition to the top-20 accolade, Lascasse was also recognized by the league office as the Freshman Athlete of the Week in back-to-back weeks (Sept. 5, 12).

The freshman is already leaving an impact on the Iowa program, rapidly climbing the season goals and season points lists. Lacasse has 10 goals and 23 points through nine games, trailing the number one spot in each category by five goals and 13 points, respectively.

Lacasse and the Hawkeyes return to action Friday night, taking on the Indiana Hoosiers. Kickoff in Bloomington is set for 4:00 p.m. (CT). Fans can watch a free webcast of Friday’s match by clicking HERE
