Iowa’s overall team ranking didn’t move. The Hawkeyes are still ranked second, behind Minnesota.

Cafone named West Player of the Year

The National Field Hockey Coaches Association selected Iowa junior Natalie Cafone as its Player of the Year for the West Region Monday.

Cafone led the Black and Gold in goals with 18 and total points with 42. She started all 18 games for the Hawkeyes in 2014.

“We are thrilled for Natalie,” head coach Lisa Cellucci said in a release. “This is an outstanding accomplishment and further exemplifies the skill, competitive attitude, and determination that she brings to the field every day.”

Monday, Cafone was named to the first-team All-Big Ten. Cafone was also named the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year earlier this month.

Women’s tennis signs 3 recruits

The Iowa women’s tennis team signed three new recruits to its roster Tuesday: Zoe Douglas, Kristen Thoms, and Adorabol Huckleby. Two of the new players will début as Hawkeyes in the fall 2015 season.

Douglas, however, will be added to the women’s tennis roster during the spring schedule. She is ranked No. 8 in U18 in England, holds the No. 1 rank in Cambridgeshire, and she has an International Tennis Federation World Ranking of 1,875.

“Zoe is joining the program in January and will add depth to both our singles and doubles lineups,” head coach Katie Dougherty said in a release. “We can’t wait to have her in the Black and Gold.”

Thoms is from La Grange, Illinois. She is a four-star recruit on Tennisrecruiting.net and is ranked No. 76 in the class of 2015.

Huckleby is a four-star recruit as well. She is playing at Wayne State but committed to Iowa last year. She will be a sophomore when she joins the Hawkeyes next fall.
