    AMES, Iowa -- The University of Iowa women's swimming and diving team won its fourth-straight dual over Iowa State, knocking off the Cyclones, 165-135, in the annual Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Series matchup on Friday night at Beyer Hall Pool.

    The Hawkeyes, who have now won 8-of-10 against the Cyclones, including the last four duals, won 10-of-16 events on the evening. Three Hawkeyes led the way, winning multiple events.

    Iowa opened the meet with a second and third place showing in the 200 medley relay. The team of Audrey Kumm, Karolina Wartalowicz, Abbey Tuchscherer, and Elise Borja took second (1:43.86), while Maddie Bro, Emma Sougstad, Haley Gordon, and Maggie Hofstadter touched out in 1:44.45 to finish third.

    Junior Becky Stoughton dominated the distance events, finishing first in both the 500 and 1,000-free. Stoughton broke the pool record in the 500-free when she finished in 4:50.92, while touching out 10:07.95 to claim the 1,000-free. The 1,000 time marks a new season-best for Stoughton in the event.

    Senior Lindsay Seemann posted a pair of victories in the backstroke events, winning the 100 and 200-back. She won the 100-back in 54.75, while her 200-back time of 1:57.82 is a new pool record. Both times are season-bests and NCAA `B' cut times.

    Tuchscherer notched two victories of her own, winning the 100-fly in 55.43, while touching out in 2:02.20 to claim the 200-fly.

    Sophomore Olivia Kabacinski posted Iowa's final individual victory in the pool, winning the 100-free in 50.45.

    Iowa concluded the meet with a win in the 400 free relay. The quartet of Kabacinski, Emily Hovren, Jennifer Weigand, and Seemann touched out in 3:24.14 to win the relay. The time marks a season-best for the Hawkeyes in the event.

    The Hawkeyes swept both events in the diving well. Redshirt junior Abby Grilli claimed the 3-meter springboard title with a score of 336.97, while fellow redshirt junior Joelle Christy finished second in 321.52. In the 1-meter springboard, Christy took first with a score of 303.60, with Grilli finishing in second (296.40).

    The Hawkeyes return to action Jan. 18 when they host Illinois, Missouri, and Indiana in a quad meet. The meet is set to begin at 11 a.m. (CT) at the Campus Recreation and Wellness Center.
