CHICAGO - Andriy Diatkovych, a senior midfielder at Lake View High School in Chicago, has signed a letter of intent to continue both his athletics and academic career at Saint Xavier University as a member of the Cougar men's soccer program. The Chicago native is expected to play either in the midfield or at defender next fall at SXU.

Diatkovych is the son of Oleg and Ellen Diatkovych. He plans to pursue a degree in finance while at Saint Xavier University. SXU men's soccer coach Ed Vucinic feels Diatkovych will have little trouble making the transition to collegiate soccer.

"I am very excited about Andriy's decision to become part of our Saint Xavier University family," said Vucinic. "He is a very solid, left-footed player with a tremendous upside, who will compete for playing time in the midfield and on the backline. Andriy has a vast amount of experience playing at a high level against skilled and seasoned competition."
