Iowa set to take on No. 17 Illinois


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa women’s gymnastics team hits the road to Champaign, Ill., to take on No. 17 Illinois today.

On Jan. 24, the GymHawks hosted No. 9 Nebraska in Carver-Hawkeye. Iowa posted its second-highest team score this season (193.250) in front of a season-high home crowd of 1,641 fans. The Hawks were able to accomplish this without their usual lineup because of a plethora of injuries.

Freshman Mollie Drenth was the only all-around competitor for Iowa, and she posted a score of 38.325. The Hawks posted a season-best score on vault (48.500).

This will be the team’s second conference matchup of the season. Illinois (3-1, 0-1) lost to No. 14 Minnesota in its Big Ten opener on Jan. 25, 196.225-195.350. Despite an injury-plagued season, the Hawkeyes have vastly improved their team score from the start of the season to now.

The meet is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. in Huff Hall. The dual will appear on the Big Ten Network as a tape-delay at 9 a.m. Saturday.
