To begin 2024, midfielder Claire Hutton has been called up to the Under-20 USWNT as the team prepares for the 2024 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup that will be held in Colombia in September.

Both are signed to Kansas City under NWSL’s Under-18 Entry Mechanism.

Hutton debuted with U17 USWNT for the 2022 Concacaf Championship and scored six goals in the tournament. She was also captain of the USWNT U19 team that took bronze at the 2023 PanAm Games as they faced many countries’ senior national teams in the tournament.
