CHICAGO -- Holly Kennedy, a senior shortstop on the University High School softball team in Normal, Ill., has signed a letter of intent to continue both her athletic and academic career at Saint Xavier University in Chicago as a member of the Cougar softball program. She is currently coached by Heather Doty at University High.

Kennedy is the daughter of Sean and Tina Kennedy of Bloomington, Ill. She is projected to play at both shortstop and second base at Saint Xavier University and plans to pursue a degree in education. Last season, the SXU softball team finished its 2004 season with a 36-24 overall record and advanced to the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) National Championships in Decatur, Ala.

"Holly is a versatile player, who can contribute in a lot of different ways to our program," said Saint Xavier University head softball coach Myra Minuskin. "She is a student of the game with the abilities to make an immediate impact."
