CHICAGO – Meghan Falsey, a senior right side/setter at Schaumburg High School in Schaumburg, 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 volleyball program. The Schaumburg native will be a freshman at SXU in the fall of 2012 and compete for playing time on the court starting this August. With the Saxons, she was a two-year starter and team captain, while also earning a spot on the Daily Herald's Northwest All-Area Girls Volleyball Team last fall.
Falsey is the daughter of Julie Falsey of Schaumburg. She was coached by Jeanette Pancratz at Schaumburg High School. The Saxons finished their 2011-12 season with a 19-18 overall record and Falsey was a big reason why with 299 assists, 102 kills, 229 digs, 75 blocks and 20 aces as a senior. She is looking to pursue a nursing major at Saint Xavier University.
"Meghan is going to be able to contribute right away on the right side," said SXU women's volleyball coach Robert Heersema. "She has a strong attack and puts up a solid block as well. We are very excited about her decision to come to Saint Xavier University."
