The National Field Hockey Coaches Association honored two members of the Iowa field-hockey team by naming them All-Americans on Monday.

Junior Natalie Cafone was named to the first-team All-American squad for the 2014 season. Cafone led the Hawkeyes, as well as the Big Ten, in regular-season scoring, finishing the year with 18 goals in 18 games.

It was the second-consecutive year Cafone has led the Big Ten in an offensive category — as a sophomore, she finished first in the nation in points per game.

Sophomore Steph Norlander was also recognized, grabbing second-team All-Big Ten honors in just her second season.

Norlander finished the season with 15 goals and 35 points, starting all 18 games for the Hawks.

The two combined for close to three-quarters of Iowa’s offensive output in 2014, an offense that finished near the top of the conference in scoring and scoring average.

Norlander finished with second-team honors for the second-straight season, following up a successful freshman campaign in which the North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, native was named Big Ten Freshman of the Year.

Likewise, 2014 is the second-straight year that Cafone has earned first-team honors for the Black and Gold.

Cafone and Norlander finished first and second in the league in goals per game, averaging 1.00 and 0.83, respectively.
