As a junior, Slobig overcame consistency problems that plagued her as a sophomore and freshman to emerge as a dependable performer on bars and beam. Her floor routine improved dramatically from first meet to final meet. She ranked 19th in the nation on beam and 20th on bars. She was named to the All-EAGL first team on floor and second on bars and beam.

Slobig capped the George Washington and Rutgers meet with first place career highs on the floor routine with her third 9.9 of the day. She sat out the Temple meet breaking a string of 27 consecutive meets. Returning for her senior year, Slobig had developed into one of WVU's most consistent bars and beam workers. She showed marked improvement each year and was one of the teams top gymnasts and was a potential All-American on bars and beam. She had also set career highs on three events as a junior.
