Iowa women’s soccer out to prove NCAA Tournament run was no fluke

In the spring, Iowa women’s soccer captivated the Hawkeye fanbase with an unexpected and attention-grabbing late-season run. After starting the season 2-8-1, the team reeled off five wins in a row resulting in their first Big Ten conference tournament championship and first win ever in the NCAA Tournament, a 1-0 victory over Campbell.

The Hawkeyes were only a few minutes away from upsetting No. 3 seed UCLA and advancing to the quarterfinals but fell 2-1.

Only four months later, Iowa women’s soccer is back on the field playing regular season matches.  

Women’s soccer is usually played in the fall. Last year their season was moved to the spring due to NCAA precautions. This year, athletics calendars are back to their traditional schedule. 

It’s made for a rapid turnaround. But the Hawkeyes appear to have not missed a beat from their run earlier this year.
