Callahan Signs National Letter of Intent with Crusaders

Thursday, January 23, 2003

Valparaiso University head softball coach Jerry Stieger has announced the signing of Taylor Callahan for the 2004 season.

The Grayson, Ga. native signed a National Letter of Intent to play for the Crusaders during the early signing period.

A product of Greater Atlanta Christian School, Callahan concluded her high school career with a .329 batting average and a .972 fielding percentage.

She was a four-year varsity starter for the Spartans and led the team to three state finals appearances. The Spartans finished as the state runner-up during Callahan's sophomore and senior seasons.

Callahan was a First Team All-Georgia selection and holds school records for doubles and homeruns in a season along with career round-trippers.

?Taylor is a tremendous all-around athlete who has the versatility to play a variety of positions for us," Stieger said. ?She will make a considerable difference on both the offensive and defensive sides of the field."
