Five standout senior student-athletes from Riverdale High School will make their plans for the future official Thursday afternoon at 2:30.

Drew Beale (football), Amanda Brummet (track and field), Liz Oltman (volleyball), Mitchell Sand (track and field) and Logan Sherman (wrestling) will sign with their respective schools during the Rams' college signing day at the high school cafeteria.

Beale and Sand will be staying close to home, with Beale inking with St. Ambrose University to continue his football career and Sand planning to compete at Augustana College.

Oltman, a key member of the Rams' 2012 third-place Class 2A state volleyball squad, will take her skills to Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington. Both Brummet and Sherman are northeast Iowa-bound, with Brummet signing with Coe College in Cedar Rapids and Sherman planning to wrestle at the University of Dubuque.
