A quick hats off (or on, in the above pic) to the three players on the Olympic Team who still have college eligibility remaining. It's tough coming into your first world championship at the senior level with all the pressure and expectations of each game, but the USA's New Kids have certainly contributed to the team's success so far. Tobin Heath has come off the bench to add a spark in three of the four games while Amy Rodriguez has earned a starting role and terrorized defenses with her speed, work rate and bulldog strength. Then against Canada in the quarterfinal, Lauren Cheney -- who was added to the team after Abby Wambach's injury -- got her first minutes of the Olympics, coming off the bench at the end of overtime and to do some great work on the defensive end in addition to holding the ball to help salt away the clock, and she even almost scored twice. There is still much work to do at the Olympics, as well as in their young international careers, but bravo for their positive contribution so far.
