Quick Take: The only member of the Olympic Team still with college eligibility remaining, Slaton will return to her college team after the Olympics to finish her junior season with the University of Santa Clara Broncos. The left-footed Slaton is one of the USA's best attacking defenders and can consistently work herself free on the flanks. A thundering athlete, she is a scrappy tackler and hard runner who is extremely tough to beat. The youngest member of the Olympic Team, she will prove valuable on the left side of the defense.
