CHICAGO - Rebekah Ruettiger, a senior shortstop at St. Charles East High School in St. Charles, Ill., has signed a letter of intent to continue both her athletic and academic career at Saint Xavier University as a member of the Cougar softball program. Ruettiger will be a freshman at SXU next fall and will compete for playing time at either shortstop or in the outfield during the 2007 season.

Ruettiger is the daughter of Dominic and Roberta Ruettiger, both of St. Charles. She was coached by Eric Ray during her prep career as a Fighting Saint at St. Charles East High School.

"Rebekah is a versatile, competitive athlete, who brings a solid work ethic and a strong will to win," said Saint Xavier University head softball coach Myra Minuskin. "She is a perfect fit for our program and should make an immediate impact."
