Iowa sophomore Steph Norlander has been named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week for the week ending on Sept. 28.

Norlander led the Hawkeyes in offense over the weekend, combining for 5 goals and 12 shots in wins over No. 17 Indiana and Missouri State.

The Hawkeyes also shot up in this week’s rankings, moving up two spots from No. 9 to No. 7 after defeating the Hoosiers and Bears by a combined score of 11-1. The team is 7-2 on the season.

No. 2 Maryland holds the Big Ten’s top spot, followed by Iowa. No. 9 Penn State, No. 11 Northwestern, No. 15 Michigan, and No. 20 Michigan State also represent the conference. North Carolina is ranked No. 1, followed by Maryland. Virginia, Duke, and Stanford round out the top five.

Norlander and the Hawkeyes will return to action Friday against Ball State. The game is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Grant Field.
