Two Nelson Youth Soccer graduates are showcasing their talents as members of the University of Lethbridge varsity women's squad.

Defender Erica Augsten and keeper Hanna Quinn have been a key part of the Pronghorns team as the Southern Alberta University competes on the women's university circuit.

Augsten was selected the Pronghorns player of the game while Quinn backstopped the Pronghorns to the victory, finishing the game with seven saves to register her first Canada West win.
