Iowa's Kristin Johnson (2003, Softball)
A two-time NFCA All-American and Academic All-Big Ten selection, Johnson earned the Big Ten Medal of Honor in 2003. Johnson was a four-time All-Big Ten selection, including as a freshman in 2000, when she was the only player in the conference to be named a unanimous first-team All-Big Ten pick. She also collected first-team All-Big Ten plaudits as a senior in 2003 after being named a second-team NFCA All-American. Johnson, who was named Iowa's Golden Glove Winner in all four seasons, led the Hawkeyes to Big Ten Championships in 2001 and 2003. She was a member of the Academic All-Big Ten team in both her sophomore and junior seasons.
