CHICAGO -- Eileen Carls, a senior at Andrew High School in Tinley 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.

Carls, who also resides in Tinley Park, was coached by Kerri Goncher at Andrew H.S, where she was a middle blocker for the Thunderbolts. She will serve as a middle blocker/outside hitter for the Cougars this fall. Carls plans to pursue a degree in education at Saint Xavier University. She is the daughter of Larry and Maureen Carls of Tinley Park.

"Eileen has a ton of club (volleyball) experience and is a versatile player, both at middle blocker and as an outside hitter," said SXU head women's volleyball coach Bob Heersema. "We look forward to having Eileen battle for playing time next season."
