The Iowa women’s gymnastics team will compete in its last regular-season meet in Cedar City, Utah, on Saturday against host Southern Utah and Utah State. Competition is set to begin at 3 p.m. in Centrum Arena.

The No. 17 Hawkeyes are coming off of a 195.95-193.425 win over Northern Illinois on March 5. The victory maintained the Hawkeyes’ undefeated home record and awarded them their second-highest team score of the season — falling only below the GymHawks’ season-best score of 196.35 against Denver on Feb. 11.

Iowa senior Rebecca Simbhudas, who has won six-straight all-around titles, is currently ranked No. 8 in the all-around competition. Junior Jessa Hansen is also in the top 20, ranked at No. 19.

Southern Utah is 8-5 on the season after winning its last home tri-meet on March 7 with a score of 195.475. The Thunderbirds’ season-high team score is 195.75.

Utah State is 2-12 on the year, having picked up its first conference win against Cal State-Fullerton on March 5. The Aggies’ highest team score of the season is 194.550.
