They are Chelsea Diamond of Louisville, a Transylvania University junior; Katherine Gardner of Greenville, a University of Louisville senior; Allison Grant of Harrodsburg, a University of Louisville sophomore; Cameryn Jones of Goshen, a University of Kentucky senior, and Dominique Luster of Louisville, a University of Kentucky junior.
