Latrace, Medoruma earn accolades

It hasn't been a great start for either the Pronghorns men's or women's soccer teams but there have been some solid individual performances thorugh the first two weeks of the Canada West season. On Tuesday, Horns Athletics announced its first set of Pronghorn Athletes of the Week.

Sherry Latrace – Women's Soccer

While the Pronghorn women's soccer team dropped its first four games, fourth-year defender Sherry Latrace has been a solid presence in the Horns backline.

After playing as a forward her first three seasons, Latrace has made a seamless transition to the Horns' defensive core that was overhauled over the off-season.

The Brooks, Alta. native did an exceptional job this past weekend turning away Calgary Dino attacks both in Calgary on Saturday and during the 'Horns' home opener on Sunday.

Matt Medoruma – Men's Soccer

Fourth-year midfielder Matt Medoruma has been a constant presence at both ends of the field for the 'Horns thus far this season.

This past weekend, Medoruma was in the middle of virtually all of the 'Horns' attacks versus the Calgary Dinos, with his pace and tenacity causing fits for the Dino defense all weekend.

Saturday, Medoruma registered one shot and set up the 'Horns' lone goal in a 2-1 loss. On Sunday he was credited with four shot attempts in the 'Horns' 1-0 loss.

Both teams are back in action this weekend with the Horns hosting University of Victoria on Saturday and University of the Freser Valley on Sunday at the Community Sports Stadium. The women play at noon and the men at 2 p.m. both days.
