At the age of 12, Beamesderfer first picked up field hockey because her mother was a coach. As she grew, so did her love for the sport. Beamesderfer started every game of her career as an Iowa Hawkeye, and helped lead the team to three straight Big Ten Tournament championships and NCAA Tournament appearances from 2006 to 2008. With a little inspiration from John Lennon and the exact same hairstyle each and every game, Beamesderfer is ready to take on any and all opponents that come her way.
