CHICAGO - Danielle Inzinga, a senior midfielder at Marist High School, recently signed a letter of intent to continue both her athletic and academic career at Saint Xavier University as a member of the Cougar women's soccer program. Inzinga is currently coached by Sean Maxwell at Marist and will join the SXU roster in the fall of 2011. The Orland Park native is projected to join the roster as a center midfielder.

Inzinga is the daughter of Joe and Barbara Inzinga of Orland Park, Ill. She plans to study biology next fall at Saint Xavier University with the intent to continue in graduate work in the field of exercise science. Inzinga also plays club soccer for the Windy City Pride based out of Plainfield, Ill. SXU women's soccer coach Jeremy Ekeler likes the physical play and work ethic that Danielle brings to his program.

"Our coaching staff has had Danielle near the top of our 2011 recruiting list for two years and she is one of the most highly decorated players in the area," said Ekeler. "Going into her senior year, she has already received all-conference, all-sectional and Chicago Red Stars/Southtown Star Player of the Week recognition as well as a member of the U.S. Club Soccer National Champion U17 Super Group. Because of her blend of vision, physical play and work rate, she was on a lot of college radars. Her decision to ultimately stay close to home means our program has added an impact player with strong roots to our SXU community. A strong student, dominant player and great teammate, Danielle is a perfect fit at SXU."
