Cyclones take CyHawk Series


Spurred by 5-0 start to the year, Iowa State took the Cy-Hawk Series, 15-11, in 2014-15.

The schools faced off 13 times over the course of the last season, with each event counting for 2 points, except for football, which counts for 3.

The Cyclones began their run in the Sept. 5, 2014, soccer match on their home turf; they went on to claim victories in football, volleyball, and men’s and women’s cross-country before the Hawks notched their first victory in wrestling.

Iowa went on to win six of the next seven contests, but it was not enough to outscore its in-state rival.

The Iowa women’s basketball team trumped Iowa State, 76-67. The next day,, the Cyclones emerged triumphant, 90-75, in men’s basketball.

In the final game of the 2014-15 sequence, two struggling softball teams squared off with the Hawks trailing, 13-11, in the series. The Cyclones prevailed.

The two schools entered last season tied at 5 series wins. And prior to it, neither had won twice in a row.

Iowa State took its second-consecutive series crown and now holds a 6-5 edge.
