Preview | Iowa State heads to Iowa City this weekend to take on Montana and in-state rival Iowa 🎾 #getexCYtedhttps://t.co/U9fK0Ofv2g


Iowa head coach Sasha Schmid:
"We are staying focused this week and looking forward to two more great opportunities to compete vs Iowa State and Montana."

The undefeated Hawkeyes are looking to carry their strong early season play into this weekend against the rival Cyclones and the Griz, who are making the trek out from Montana. Iowa’s #1 player, Elise van Heuvelen, has been on fire this season.

She was a three-set winner in her Hawkeye debut at UCF and dominated her second match against Creighton, winning in straight sets, 6-0, 6-1. She won her third match against Northern Illinois in straight sets last weekend, 6-2, 6-2.

Iowa State
In addition to being the latest program to add PlaySight SmartCourt technology, the Cyclones are riding a two match win-streak and sit at 2-1 overall this season. They have yet to beat the Hawkeyes, and the two teams haven’t played since 2015.

This match marks the 14th event of the 2016-17 Cy-Hawk series. Iowa leads the series, 14-7.
 
Montana
Head coach David Ascher is excited about the trip to Iowa with his 1-1 team.
 
"Getting those matches on the schedule a year and a half ago was exciting for me. Now it's neat to see the team getting excited about them as well as we build up toward this weekend. They’ve been putting in the work to do well when we get there.
 
"I'm excited for them to experience the matches. It's going to be fun, because these are good teams."
