Iowa-Iowa State on the gridiron is next in the Hy-Vee Cy-Hawk Series.
August 24, 2006
The Hy-Vee Cy-Hawk Series - the annual battle for intercollegiate athletics braggin' rights in the state of Iowa involving teams from the University of Iowa and Iowa State University and presented by Hy-Vee - turns three years old in 2006-07. And, fittingly, the Series is tied with one win for the Hawkeyes - the inaugural 2004-05 athletics year - and one win for the Cyclones, 2005-06.
"It's been spirited, entertaining competition. We look forward to competing hard and bringing the prize - the Hy-Vee Cy-Hawk Series trophy - back to Iowa City next June," said Gary Barta, the UI's director of athletics.
The 2006-07 Series includes 10 events including a volleyball match in Iowa City's award-winning Carver-Hawkeye Arena on Aug. 26. It concludes with a game between the two schools softball teams in Iowa City on April 3.
Iowa State claimed an early 2-0 lead with a 3-2 victory over Iowa in volleyball Aug. 26. That was the first of six events to be staged in Iowa City.
Iowa rebounded with its own win on the road, a 1-0 victory in soccer in overtime. Iowa City native Kelsie Full netted her first career game-winning goal during extra time to secure two points for the Hawkeyes.
Iowa outscored ISU 13-8 in the first year of the Series. Iowa State returned the favor in 2005-06 by outscoring the Hawkeyes 13-6.
