    IOWA CITY, IA - - Senior Meghan Beamesderfer of the University of Iowa field hockey team has been named a second team all-American by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA).

    "Meg has had an amazing career," said Head Coach Tracey Griesbaum. "She has been a major contributor for four years. She has been a part of three Big Ten Tournament championships, three NCAA appearances, including the Final Four last year, and has started every game of her career. It is nice to have her receive national all-American honors for the second time in her career. Meg is an outstanding athlete who has earned this honor. She is an outstanding representative of Iowa Field Hockey."

    Beamesderfer, a native of Lititz, PA, started every game of her Hawkeye career. She is now a two-time all-American, a four-time regional all-American and a three-time all-Big Ten honoree. In 2006, she was named Big Ten Freshman of the Year. This season, she led the team in goals (10) and defensive saves (four) and was named Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year.

    Fifteen Hawkeyes have received all-American honors under Griesbaum.
