April 11, 2012

IOWA CITY, Iowa — The National Strength and Conditioning Association has announced University of Iowa senior Megan Eskew has been awarded the All-American Strength and Conditioning Athlete of the Year award. The award recognizes student-athletes’ dedication to strength training and conditioning.

Eskew started the final 62 matches of her Hawkeye career after returning from an ACL injury suffered prior to her junior season. She returned to the court in 2010 and led the team in total attacks. She recorded a career-high 294 kills in 2011, her senior year, while totaling 10 double-doubles. Eskew was a four-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree and was named to three all-tournament teams in her career, including the 2007 Hawkeye Challenge, where she was named MVP.

The NSCA All-American Athlete of the Year Award program is in its 33rd year. This year, the NSCA awarded 225 collegiate and high school athletes from 90 schools.

Eskew is the third University of Iowa student-athlete to win the award since 2010. Basketball players Kamille Wahlin and Kachine Alexander earned honors in 2010 and 2011, respectively.
