The 12-team field includes O’Fallon, Effingham St. Anthony, Teutopolis, Rockton Hononegah, Greenville, Chatham Glenwood, and Waterloo from Illinois. Missouri schools are Fort Zumwalt South, Fort Zumwalt East, Desmet, and Jefferson City Helias.

Coach Macias added: “This is the best field we’ve ever had for this tournament. It is very deep and talented and I think there will be battles on all four flights.

"O’Fallon, Chatham Glenwood, Helias, and Desmet are probably the top four teams, but there is not a lot of separation between them and Teutopolis, St. Anthony, and hopefully us. Rockton is new to the tournament and they are strong too, so we will have to see how everyone competes on Saturday.”
