On Nov. 14, at 10:30 am, senior Blythe Rients officially signed her contract to play D1 volleyball for the University of Iowa surrounded by family, friends, and members of the SPA community.

“Hello all, I’m so happy you’re able to make it here today to witness this incredible step forward in this young woman’s life,” said US athletics director Dawn Wickstrom.

“This is no doubt a testament to how hard Blythe has worked over the last couple of years, and I’m sad to see her go, but I know she’ll excel at Iowa,” SPA volleyball coach Jim Abbott said.

University of Iowa swag was adorned around the room to signify Blythe’s commitment, and the cake was served after the signing to celebrate the moment.
