Young, a senior at Superior High School and the daughter of Greg and Jill Young, was also a finalist for WGHCA’s Ms. Hockey 2018.
Young, who scored 39 points this season for the Spartans with 24 goals and 15 assists, will attend UW-Eau Claire in the fall and play hockey for the Blugolds.
Pearson, a senior at Northwestern High School, is the daughter of Jeff and Kim Pearson. She had 14 goals and seven assists this season for the six-school Hayward Co-op girls hockey team.
Pearson will attend Concordia University Wisconsin this fall and play hockey for the Falcons.
