The Iowa field-hockey team dropped one spot in the most recent rankings released Tuesday. The drop to No. 19 comes on the heels of a five-game winning streak for the Hawkeyes.

Iowa’s (10-5, 2-2) most recent victories came against Ohio State on Oct. 18 and against Miami on Sunday. The Hawkeyes won both games by a score of 3-1.

Rounding out the rankings for the Big Ten are Penn State (11-3, 4-0) at No. 6 and Northwestern (12-4, 3-1) at 13.

The Big Ten announced Tuesday that Jessy Silfer has been named Freshman of the Week. Silfer helped the Hawkeye defense hold Ohio State and Miami to a combined 15 shots over the two games. The native of Cazenovia, N.Y., has started all 15 contests this season.
