CHICAGO - Morgan West, a senior outside hitter/middle blocker at Elkhart Central High School in Elkhart, Ind., has signed a letter of intent to continue both her athletic and academic career at Saint Xavier University as a member of the Cougar volleyball program. West was coached by Vince Strefling during her prep career at Elkhart Central High School.

West is the daughter of Jim and Carol West of Elkhart. She is looking to pursue a degree in marketing/management next year at Saint Xavier University.

"I believe Morgan is an untapped resource," said Saint Xavier University volleyball coach Robert Heersema. "She has great jumping ability and is very athletic. Morgan is definitely a diamond in the rough and I look forward to seeing her grow as a player over the next four years."
