Iowa Announces Blevins Softball Fund

Gayle BlevinsGayle BlevinsIOWA CITY, Iowa - The University of Iowa Foundation has established the “Gayle Blevins Softball Fund” as a way to honor Blevins for her many contributions as a mentor, teacher, leader and friend. 

Blevins, who led Hawkeyes softball beginning in 1988, retired from the university at the end of the 2010 season. Previously, Blevins coached at Indiana from 1980-1987. She retired after 31 years in the coaching ranks with a 1,245-588-5 record. 

Blevins was inducted into the National Fastpitch Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 1999, and still serves as instructor in the NFCA’s National Fastpitch Coaches College. 

The Foundation is asking softball letterwinners, friends and colleagues to make a gift to recognize the important role she played in women’s athletics. The goal is to raise $50,000, the minimum level for endowing an athletic scholarship at Iowa. Gifts of any size are welcome. Click here to download the form.
