Field Hockey: van Agt named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week
Sophomore forward Eva van Agt was named Big Ten offensive player of the week, the conference announced Tuesday.
van Agt, who has started every game this season for the Wildcats, led the team with 3 goals in a weekend sweep of Ohio State and Kent State. She scored 2 of her goals against the Flashes on Sunday and also added an assist in the 4-1 victory. van Agt scored on all three of her shot attempts over the two games.
van Agt got her name on the scoresheet in a variety of ways. She converted from a penalty corner on Friday, then displayed some individual ability to score her first goal Sunday before capping her weekend with an acrobatic finish on a pass from junior back Sophia Miller.

After finishing her freshman year third on the team in scoring, she is currently tied for third with 4 goals on the season. The award is the first of van Agt’s career, and the first award an NU player has received this season.
The Cats, who jumped from No. 15 to No. 11 in the NFHCA Coaches rankings this week, will return to action Friday by hosting No. 4 Penn State.
