It continues to be a busy summer for current and former members of the Colorado women's soccer team.

On Thursday, it was announced recent CU graduates Emily Bruder and Morgan Stanton will play for the United States team at The World University Games next month in Taipei, Taiwan.

Bruder started 20 games as a senior for the Buffaloes last fall, recording four goals and four assists in her lone season at CU after transferring from North Carolina. Stanton, also a senior last fall, started 22 games and logged a team-high 1,894 minutes played as a defensive midfielder. Stanton earned a Pac-12 Conference Defensive Player of the Week honor in October and was one of the leaders of a club that reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

The World University Games will be held Aug. 19-30.

Additionally Taylor Kornieck, last year's Pac-12 Freshman of the Year, is completed a hectic summer with stints competing for both the U20 and U19 U.S. National Teams. Kornieck accounted for both U.S. goals with a goal and an assist in a 2-0 win for the U20 team against England on July 7. It was Kornieck's first international goal.
