CHICAGO - Katie Houlihan, a senior outfielder at Lincoln-Way North High School in Frankfort, 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. The Frankfort native will be a freshman at SXU in the fall of 2010 and will compete for playing time on the field during the 2011 season.

Houlihan is the daughter of Kevin and Joanne Houlihan of Frankfort. She is currently coached by Aimee Lonigro at Lincoln-Way North High School. Houlihan is looking to pursue a degree in education next year at Saint Xavier University.
