SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Three members of the Iowa softball team played well enough to earn a spot on the Bama Bash All-Tournament team from the Bama Bash softball tournament this past weekend.

Johnnie Dowling, the leadoff hitter for the Hawkeyes, landed a spot on the All-Tournament Team by posting a .438 average. The senior raked 7 hits and scored 5 runs along with 3 stolen bases and an RBI. Dowling also had three multi-hit games.

Chelsea Lyon also garnered All-Tournament honors thanks to her performances in the pitching circle. The senior went 2-0 this past weekend, pushing her overall record to 5-1. Lyon posted a 1.62 ERA in 13 innings of work, limiting her opponents to a .188 batting average.

The third Hawkeye to earn a spot on the All-Tournament Team was Kayla Massey. The junior tallied a .462 batting average that included a home run and five RBIs. Massey posted .692 slugging percentage and scored 1 run herself along with two complete-game pitching performances against No. 1 Alabama.

Iowa’s record sits at 10-5 after three season-opening tournaments. The Hawkeyes finished second this past weekend, despite dropping two games to Alabama, the defending national champions.
