GymHawks fall to third ranked Michigan


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa women’s gymnastics team fell on the road again, this time losing to third-ranked Michigan, 196.675-195.200, on Feb. 2 in Ann Arbor.  

After a week of practice working on small details, head coach Larissa Libby was not pleased with her squad’s attention to the little things.

“We didn't pay enough attention to details on the first two events, and that hurt us on the back half of the meet,” Libby said in a release. “I thought the team did a phenomenal job on the beam and floor, even though their scores did not reflect it.”

The meet was another strong outing for the GymHawks, but the Wolverines proved to be too much down the stretch. Freshman Alie Glover finished third in the all-around competition with a 38.975, and the team performed well on the beams once again, scoring a 48.575.

The team continued to perform well on the bars and floor. The GymHawks scored a 48.900 on the bars, and a season-high 49.000 on the floor. Senior Emma Stevenson tied for second place on the floor with a score of 9.875.

On Friday, the GymHawks return to Carver-Hawkeye Arena for a meet against Illinois-Chicago and Michigan State at 7 p.m.
