Two members of the 2013 Big Ten Tournament runner-up Iowa field-hockey team will compete in the USA-Canada series this week.

Freshman Stephanie Norlander and senior Karli Johansen will be members of Team Canada, along with former Hawkeye Jessica Barnett. All three players attended Handsworth Secondary in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Norlander and Johansen combined for 27 points (13 goals, 1 assist) in the 2013 campaign.

Norlander, a forward, was named Big Ten Freshman of the Year, and Johansen competed in the National Field Hockey Coaches Association Division I senior game.

Former Hawks Meghan Beamesderfer and Lauren Pfeiffer will play for Team USA.

The four games will take place at the Spooky Nook Sports Facility in Lancaster, Pa., Monday, today, Thursday, and Friday.

Beamesderfer and the Americans bested Team Canada 7-0 on Monday.
