CHICAGO -- Laura Gullickson, a middle blocker from McNamara High School in Kankakee, Ill., recently signed a letter of intent to continue her athletic and academic career at Saint Xavier University in Chicago as a member of the Cougar volleyball program. Gullickson, a native of Bourbonnais, Ill., was coached by Lisa Tutt during her prep career at McNamara.

Gullickson plans to pursue a degree in communication at Saint Xavier. She is the daughter of Tom and Sheryl Gullickson, who reside in Bourbonnais. Gullickson also played club volleyball for the Second City Volleyball Club Team under Katie Brasher.

"Laura brings a ton of experience, great ball control and a great head for the game to our program," said Saint Xavier University volleyball coach Bob Heersema. "In addition, she comes from a great volleyball family with both her older sisters being great players."
