Concord, Charleston, West Liberty and Bluefield State will represent the WVIAC in the Atlantic Region as will Ohio Valley’s Sean Burke and Davis & Elkins’ Alasdair Forsythe.

The Mountain Lions are the No. 2 seed in the region and were the automatic qualifier from the WVIAC. The Golden Eagles of Charleston earned the No. 6 slot while West Liberty (No .7) and Bluefield State (No. 8) were right behind in the 10-team regional.
