SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa women’s gymnastics team will travel to Ames to take on Iowa State today part of the Hy-Vee Cy-Hawk series.

The No. 20 GymHawks are hoping to continue their winning streak after emerging victorious in two meets last weekend. They also hope to maintain a high team score after finishing with 196.35 against Denver on Feb. 11 and 195.3 against Wisconsin-Stout on Sunday.

The Hawkeyes enter the meet with less training than usual. Because they are recovering from back to back meets last weekend, the GymHawks trained lightly on Monday and didn’t train Wednesday.

The days off from practice shouldn’t have a negative effect, however, because the team is focusing more on mental preparation, head coach Larissa Libby said.

The meet will begin at 7 p.m. in the Hilton Coliseum.
