CHICAGO -- Kate Eckhoff, a senior at Grant Park High School in Grant Park, Ill., has signed a letter of intent to continue her academic and athletic career at Saint Xavier University as a member of the Cougar women's volleyball team.

Eckhoff, who resides in Grant Park, was coached by Rhonda McKinstry at Grant Park H.S, where she was a middle blocker for the Dragons. She will serve as a middle blocker/opposite for the Cougars this fall. Eckhoff plans to pursue a biology degree at Saint Xavier University.

"Kate is a great athlete and has some great club volleyball experience," said SXU head women's volleyball coach Bob Heersema. "She should see some significant time on the court in the fall."
