Iowa junior shortstop Megan Blank can add another accolade to her successful career.

The Culver City, Calif., native was named on the Top 50 Watch List for the 2014 USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year.

This marks the first time that she was included on the list and more importantly, it gets the rest of the country’s attention.

“It means that they’re recognizing Iowa softball and that we’re back on the map,” head coach Marla Looper said in a release. “We’ve opened some eyes.”

Blank has been named a first team All-Big Ten selection twice and is a two-time All-District honoree.
She joins a prestigious list with only 19 other juniors mentioned.

Blank comes off a record-breaking season in which she set the record for highest single-season batting average in program history, .437.
