Cape Girardeau, Mo. (February 6, 2002) - The Otahkian Gymnastics team will face some of its toughest competition this season as they play host to the 18th ranked Hawkeyes of the University of Iowa this Saturday at 7 p.m. in Houck Field House.

The Otahks have split their last five events wining one, then dropping one. If the trend holds true, the Otahks should be victorious this weekend as the 18th ranked Hawkeyes of the University of Iowa come to Houck to take on Southeast in a dual. Southeast lost its last dual to the Flames of Illinois-Chicago, but sophomore Ashley Godwin won her seventh individual championship of the season as she shared the bars title. Senior Stephanie Furman made her return to the mats as she placed second on the beam and third on the vault in her first meet of the season. Junior Amy Cole finished second in the All-Around to her teammate Godwin. Southeast leads the series with Iowa 16-6, but lost last year in Iowa City 192.80-187.325.

The Hawks are 2-2 overall on the season and are ranked 18th in the country. They have faced the likes of No. 6 Nebraska, No. 9 Iowa State, No. 10 Michigan State, and Southern Utah, with wins against Michigan State and So. Utah. Their team-high this season came against So. Utah with a score of 195.100. They are led by sophomore Alexis Maday who has the top individual scores in all four events and the All-Around for the Hawks. She had a 9.900 on the Vault against Iowa State and a 39.450 in the All-Around against So. Utah. The team's best event is the floor exercise as they have scored a 49.125 on the event against So. Utah.

Southeast next travels to Texas Woman's University February 17 at 2 p.m. to compete in a triangle with Air Force and Texas Woman's.
