What an incredible debut for the Iowa women's wrestling team at Carver-Hawkeye Arena! With three dual victories against Presbyterian, Lindenwood, and Sacred Heart, the Hawkeye women showcased their prowess in the program's Carver-Hawkeye debut. The record-breaking attendance of 8,207 fans created a vibrant atmosphere, celebrating each victory with cheers and standing ovations.

Emilie Gonzalez's pin and tech fall, Marlynne Deede's dominant debut with two pins, and Emily Frost's impressive performance at 130 pounds highlighted the team's success. The Hawkeyes displayed clinical precision with 10 wins by fall and 16 by technical superiority, truly making a mark in women's wrestling.

The sense of pride and accomplishment was palpable, exemplified by Felicity Taylor's reflection on the surreal experience of walking out into Carver-Hawkeye Arena as a Hawk. The future of women's wrestling looks bright, with young fans witnessing representation and dreams coming true. Congratulations to the Hawkeye women on a dazzling start to the season! #ForHer #HawkeyePride!
