Nelson Youth Soccer grad Shianne Michalchuk is quickly getting accustomed to playing at the university level.

The NYS grad scored twice to spark Thompson Rivers University Wolfpack to a 3-1 victory over Columbia Basin College Saturday during an exhibition road trip to Washington State.

The Wolfpack also defeated Clark College 1-0 and Wenatchee College 8-2 during the weekend trip.

Michalchuk is one of two players from Nelson Youth Soccer on the squad. Defender Julia Burkart is also a rookie on the TRU roster. Both players were part of the NYS U18 Selects Provincial B Cup winner team this summer.

Michalchuk and Burkart are joined by U18 teammate Chantal Gammie of Smithers.

TRU completes the exhibition season Saturday in Kamloops with a game against Douglas College Royals at Hillside Field. The Wolfpack open the Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) season September 8 at home against MacEwan Griffins of Edmonton.
