IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa midfielder Alina Magruder has been named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week, the league announced Tuesday.
The Mustang, Oklahoma, native played more than 50 minutes in the first two games of her collegiate career, tallying four shots and two goals in helping the Hawkeyes post a pair of wins over Pacific and Omaha and improve to a 2-0 record for a fourth straight season.
The freshman helped extended Iowa’s lead with her first of two goals when she booted the ball past Nebraska Omaha’s goalkeeper Haley Shelton in the 80th minute of the second half on Aug. 23.
The honor is the first of Magruder’s career and she is the first Hawkeye freshman to earn the weekly conference honor since Hannah Clark on Oct. 8, 2012.
The Hawkeyes return to the Iowa Soccer Complex on Friday, hosting South Dakota State. First touch is set for 7 p.m. (CT).
