After upsetting Purdue and beating Indiana last weekend, the once-lowly Iowa Hawkeyes stand 14-4 overall, 4-2 in the Big Ten, and in a place the program hasn’t been since 1988.

Third-year coach Bond Shymansky, who grew up in Iowa City, played club volleyball for the Hawkeyes and has two degrees from Iowa, couldn’t be happier after enduring a 2-18 Big Ten finish in 2015.

There is no doubt that the toughest part of this year’s schedule lies ahead, but for now Iowa is enjoying the feeling of having won four Big Ten matches in a row. This weekend the Hawkeyes play at Maryland and Ohio State.
