CHICAGO - Molly Sheehan, a senior midfielder and defensemen from Orland Park, Ill., recently signed a letter of intent to continue both her athletic and academic career at Saint Xavier University as a member of the Cougar women's soccer program. Sheehan is currently coached by Michael Kealy at Amos Alonzo Stagg High School in Palos Hills, Ill. She will be a freshman at SXU and compete for playing time on the field starting this fall.

Sheehan is the daughter of James and Mary Beth Sheehan of Orland Park. She is planning to pursue a degree in speech pathology starting next fall at Saint Xavier University. SXU women's soccer coach Jeremy Ekeler is excited about the the addition of the versatile Sheehan.

"Molly is always being raved about as a person and player," said Ekeler. "Molly is an outstanding student, who is proven both at Stagg and her community. She will also make an big impact on the field through her smart and physical play. A four-year player for Coach Kealy's varsity squad, Molly is strong in the midfield and as a defender, due to her ability to win the ball and her smart decisions as a distributor of the ball. She had a lot of options and we're very proud she has chosen to become a Cougar."
