The Y(2175) resonance was first observed in an initial state radiation process by the BaBar Collaboration. It was later confirmed by the BES, Belle, and BESIII collaborations. A conventional strangeonium meson interpretation of the Y(2175) is disfavoured due to the resonance's relatively narrow width and unexpected decay patterns. As such, it may be an outside-the-quark-model hadron, e.g., a hybrid, tetraquark, and/or meson molecule. We use Gaussian sum-rules---a variant of QCD sum-rules well-suited to studying multi-resonance models---to investigate possible strangeonium hybrid content of the Y(2175).
