Chargers Net Slayton as Women’s Head Coach

Slayton has a proven history both on and off the court.  She played for West Jones High School before moving on to compete for Jones Junior College.  Slayton went on to earn a full scholarship to play at Fordham University in The Bronx, NY.  

The importance of balancing athletics and education was not lost on Slayton.  While attending Fordham University, Slayton earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology with a minor in Theology.  She went on to earn her Master’s Degree in Physical Education and Sports Kinesiology.

With 19 years experience as an educator, Slayton is no stranger to the classroom or the court.  She has over 15 years of coaching experience in basketball as well as bowling and track.

“I am looking forward to working with this group of young ladies,” Slayton says.  “It feels good to be back home.  I had such great experiences and mentors that helped shape me and I hope that I can give the same to these young women.”

Southeastern Baptist Athletics is looking forward to the coming season with Coach Slayton.  For more information on Ms. Slayton and Lady Chargers basketball, go to
