CHICAGO - Morgan Eskra, a senior shortstop at Beatrice High School in Beatrice, Neb., 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. The Beatrice native will be a freshman at SXU in the fall of 2008 and will compete for playing time during the 2009 softball season likely serving as a utility player on the SXU roster.

Eskra is the daughter of Dave and Lisa Eskra. She is currently coached by Dennis Dodge for the Lady Orange of Beatrice High School. Eskra is looking to pursue a degree in pre-law next year at Saint Xavier University.

"Morgan will add speed and intensity to the program," said Saint Xavier University head softball coach Myra Minuskin. "She can play infield and outfield and is a strong hitter. Morgan will be an exciting player to watch."
