A total of 81 teams and 45 individuals are competing the next three days at six different regional sites for spots in the NCAA Championship. The top five teams from each regional, as well as the top individual not on one of those teams, will advance to the finals, which will be conducted May 24-29 at the Omni LaCosta Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, Calif.
