AMES, Iowa – The Iowa State gymnastics team (4-8 overall, 1-1 Big 12) took down Iowa (1-9) on Senior Night in Hilton Coliseum by a score of 195.925-192.775 on Friday. It was the Cyclones’ second-highest score of the season.

With the win, six Cyclone seniors, Henrietta Green, Milan Ivory, Hailey Johnson, Megan McDonald, Camille Santerre-Gervais and Michelle Shealy, made certain that it would be a Cyclone state again this year. Iowa State clinched the Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Series trophy with the gymnast’s victory. The two points earned by the gymnastics team pushes Iowa State’s lead to 13-10 with only softball left to be played.

Uneven Parallel Bars
This rotation was Senior Night as it should be, with Cyclone seniors coming up with big scores, including two career-highs. Santerre-Gervais tied a school and personal record with a 9.950, and is just the fourth gymnast in school history to hit that mark on bars. McDonald also hit a career-high in Iowa State’s second rotation with a 9.875. Green (9.850) and Caitlin Brown (9.825) were the other Cyclones to go over the 9.8 mark. Iowa State had a season-best team score of 49.275 on bars.

Floor Exercise
Green and fellow senior Ivory shined on floor as Iowa State sealed the deal to close the meet out. Green put up a personal-best 9.900 on what was the final performance in Hilton Coliseum of her career. Ivory also helped close the meet in style, tying a career-high with a score of 9.875. Brown (9.850) and Johnson (9.750) also provided a boost as the Cyclones tied a season-high team floor score 49.150.

Balance Beam
Shealy, an All-American led the way on beam in her Hilton Coliseum swan song, scoring a 9.825 in the anchor position. Ivory and Brown followed Shealy with scores of 9.800. The Cyclones put up a team score of 48.825 in their third rotation.

Brown and Ivory led the way in the Cyclones’ first rotation, as each put up a 9.775. A steady effort all the way around was the story for Iowa State on vault, as they improved on their season average on the apparatus with a team score of 48.675.
