The Bears (11-7), which advanced to the quarterfinals of 2022 MCLA National Championships presented by New Balance before running into St. Thomas, swept all 10 of the first-place votes to launch 25 points clear of the field.
"We are super excited to be voted No. 1 preseason and to have it be a unanimous vote of our conference is an incredible honor," said Missouri State coach Donnie Curran. "We have set some big goals for our program for this upcoming season and we are excited to show what we can do on the field."
