This summer, millions across the world tuned in to watch powerful women command the soccer field in France during the Women’s World Cup. Some Bronco soccer stars from years past brought those who watched from homes in the United States closer to the action. On Fox Sports, Aly Wagner ’02 joined JP Dellacamera as a lead play-by-play announcer. Working with Wagner were her former Santa Clara teammates, Leslie Osborne ’05 and Danielle Slaton ’02, as fellow game analysts. The three were part of a Fox Sports team that included 15 female broadcasters covering the tournament. This World Cup wasn’t the first time these alumnae were on the world’s stage—or part of a big win. In 2001, they helped lead the Broncos to their first NCAA championship victory. In addition to their spectacular college careers, they all played for the U.S. women’s national team and in the World Cup themselves.
