Cyclones Fired Up For Intrasquad Scrimmage
AMES, Iowa – The Iowa State gymnastics team will host its intrasquad scrimmage on Tuesday in Hilton Coliseum at 6:30 p.m. CT. The event will be free to the public and will be a great first chance for fans to watch the 2014 squad in action.
Head coach Jay Ronayne said the intrasquad serves as a reward for his team’s hard work in practice. To be able to get back to competing in Hilton Coliseum in front of fans is what gets his Cyclones fired up.
“Just seeing the excitement in practice tells the whole story,” Ronayne said. “They finally get a chance to get into their element and show off a little bit. It’s the reason they do this stuff. They don’t come in the gym four hours every day and work extremely hard just to work out. It’s to do it in front of fans and show how awesome they are. They’re excited for it.”
The intrasquad will have a competitive format, in which the gymnasts will be split into two teams, Cardinal and Gold, and will compete against each other.
