The Iowa women’s gymnastics team will travel to Ames to take on Iowa State in the annual Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Series today. The meet is set to begin at 6:30 p.m.

Last season, Iowa beat the Cyclones, 196.375-194.575. The Hawkeyes hosted the event and completed an undefeated season at home, with a season-high of 2,303 in attendance. The GymHawks competed without senior Kaitlynn Urano, who suffered a leg injury the week before.

Then-sophomore Sydney Hoerr placed second in the vault and floor en route to earning the all-around title with a career-best mark of 39.400. Alie Glover, then a freshman, placed third in the all-around (38.975).

Iowa State — now 3-8, 1-1 — lost to No. 12 Minnesota, 197.250-193.725, in its most recent outing, March 1. The Cyclones received career-best performances from Michelle Shealy and Caitlin Brown on beam and vault, respectively.
