Seniors Megan Cameron and Kala Negus each were tabbed as one of the 12 top players during the tournament.
Megan Cameron played all 110 minutes of shutout soccer against Creighton in the MVC quarterfinals and played all 92 minutes of the semifinal match against Missouri State. Cameron was credited with the only Panther goal against the Bears in the semifinals, heading a crossing pass from teammate and fellow senior Missy Journot past MVC First Team goalkeeper Jessica Teahan.
Kala Negus played each minute of the shootout win against the Creighton Bluejays in the opening round of the MVC tournament. Negus also saw all 92 minutes of action against Missouri State in the MVC semifinals.
Both Cameron and Negus played a vital role in the UNI defense throughout the regular season and the MVC tournament. UNI posted seven shutouts on the season and earned eight wins, the most since 2003-04 campaign.
