The Iowa women’s gymnastics team released its 2014 schedule on Thursday.

This season’s schedule features five home meets, first being the annual Black and Gold Intrasquad on Dec. 8 in Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

The team has a home dual meet against Utah State on Jan. 11 before it takes a road trip to Ball State, Georgia, then comes home for Nebraska in January.

“We have a tough road schedule,” GymHawk head coach Larissa Libby said in a release. “We added Georgia — one of the top SEC teams — to the schedule. We have always said if you want to be the best, you have to compete against the best. We try to face the big-conference teams every year. It allows us to see some different types of judging and competition. We are excited Georgia welcomed us; it is an incredible venue and atmosphere. It will be difficult; our entire schedule is difficult for a young team.”

This year’s GymHawks have an young team with five juniors and seven sophomores.

Iowa will conclude its regular season at Boise State, Iowa State, and the Big Ten Quad Meet in Ann Arbor, Mich. The Quad is a new addition to the schedule and is something Libby looks forward to.

The Big Ten championships are set for for March 21-23 at State College, Pa. The NCAA regional competition will begin April 4.
