CHICAGO -- Megen Friscia, a senior third baseman on the 2004 Class AA state champion Lockport Township High School softball team, 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. She is currently coached by Marissa Chovanec at Lockport Township.

Friscia is the daughter of Mike and Mickey Friscia of Lockport, Ill. She plans to pursue a degree in education while at Saint Xavier University. 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.

"Megen is a phenomenal ballplayer on a state championship team," said Saint Xavier University head softball coach Myra Minuskin. "She will make an immediate contribution to our softball program. We are quite fortunate that she chose SXU."
