The Iowa State gymnastics squad, coming off the school's second-ever appearance at NCAA Championships a year ago, is ranked No. 11 in GymInfo's 2005 preseason coaches poll. The ranking is the highest preseason mark in school history.
ISU will face stiff competition again this season as nine
of their opponents are also ranked in the top 25, including all four Big 12
Conference foes. Reigning conference champion Nebraska leads the Big 12 with a
No. 8 preseason ranking.
The Cyclones return three gymnasts who
earned All-American recognition in 2005, including first team honorees in
Laura-Kay Powell and Janet Anson, as well as second-team honoree Erin Dethloff.
ISU will also debut five newcomers to a squad that finished with a No. 8 ranking
a year ago.
Iowa State will kick off the 2006 season on Jan. 6 at the
Super Six in Baton Rouge, La. Their first home meet will be held at 7 p.m. on
Friday, Jan. 13, at Hilton Coliseum.
