Wyatt signs to play at IU East

Wabash High School senior Mariah Wyatt will continue her volleyball career at Indiana University East.

Wyatt signed a letter of intent to play at the school during a brief ceremony at WHS on Monday, Jan. 18.

“I had (IUE coach Kim McConaha) as a coach for a club in Fort Wayne,” Wyatt said. “I just like the way she coached.”
McConaha said it was because of her play on the club team that she recruited Wyatt.

“I hope she brings what she did when we met her,” the coach said. “She’s quiet but she gets the job done. She just wants to do her best for everybody.

“She’s excited. She has to learn. She wants to be challenged. She’s not scared. She’s going to bring the intangibles to the team of being herself. That’s why we recruited her.

“She’s played other sports, which is great. But getting her in the gym with just volleyball, I think she’s going to grow exponentially. It’s going to be fun to watch.”

Wyatt plans to study life science at IUE.
