Baltimore, Md. - The Loyola College men's soccer team has received commitments from two recruits for the 2008 season. The program adds Mark Jaskolski and Adam Kirilichin to a squad that posted 19 wins and advanced to the second round of the NCAA College Cup in 2007.
"We believe that both Mark and Adam have very good character and will fit very well into the attitude of our team," said Head Coach Mark Mettrick. "Mark comes from a very good playing environment with Casa Mia Bays and is a very hard working and versatile player that can play in the midfield or up front. Adam is another hard worker and a talented goalkeeper who will add to the strength of our goalkeeping squad"
Jaskolski is a Maryland native who attends Northwest High School. He played five years of Maryland State ODP soccer, where he was a two-time regional champion. Jaskolski played alongside current Greyhound, Mike Deasel for his club team, the Baltimore Casa Mia Bays, and won a national club championship together. Jaskolski was an all-state, all-county and all-area player his senior season.
Kirilichin comes from Connecticut, where he captained his high school squad last season. A goalkeeper, Kirilichin garnered all state and all-conference honors and plays for the South Central Premier Academy League Team in Connecticut.
"We're excited to have Adam as a Greyhound," says Loyola goalkeeper coach Kyle Swarts. "He's got great size and quick feet. His competitive spirit and strong leadership skills will result in a bright future at Loyola."
