ST. LOUIS - Westminster women's soccer was selected to finish fourth in the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, based on a poll from the league's head coaches.

The Blue Jays totaled 57 points, following Webster (80), Greenville (67), and Fontbonne (64). 

First-year Head Coach Wendy Sanchez looks to improve upon the team's 7-2 record in conference play last season.

Koonce added 13 goals and seven assists in her 2017 campaign, while Schulte scored six goals and added six assists in her freshman season.
