CHICAGO - Amy Kennedy, a senior catcher at Pontiac High School in Pontiac, 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. She will be a freshman at SXU in the fall of 2007 and will compete for playing time at catcher during the 2008 season.
