CHICAGO - Brittany Hannigan, a senior shortstop at Stagg High School in Palos Hills, 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 shortstop during the 2008 season.

Hannigan is the daughter of Dennis and Renee Hannigan of Palos Hills. She is currently coached by Missy Mason at Stagg High School. Hannigan is looking to pursue a degree in biology next year at Saint Xavier University.

"Brittany is a phenomenal defensive shortstop," said Saint Xavier University head softball coach Myra Minuskin. "She has awesome range, a great arm, and above average speed. Brittany definitely has the ability to play for us as a freshman."
