CHICAGO – Denise Anderson, a senior outfielder at Ralston Valley High School in Arvada, Colo., recently 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 Arvada, Colo., native will be a freshman at SXU next fall and compete for playing time on the field during the 2013 campaign.
Anderson is the daughter of Jimmy and Theresa Anderson of Arvada, Colo. She is currently coached by Wendy Davies at Ralston Valley High School. Anderson is looking to pursue a degree in nursing next year at Saint Xavier University.
"Denise is a speedy outfielder with good instincts," said Saint Xavier University softball coach Myra Minuskin. "She can bunt for a hit as well as hit for power. Denise fits perfectly into our design to be fast and athletic."
