UMSL is among nine teams participating in the East Regional and is seeded No. 7 in the field. The other schools include: Indianapolis, Grand Valley State, Ferris State, Ashland, Findlay, California (PA), Southern Indiana and Drury.
The individuals competing are Kasey Frazier (Wheeling Jesuit), Jamie Ellison (Ohio Dominican), Steph Peareth (Concord) and Jamie Tsangeos (Walsh).
