Head Coach Bert Rogers on Tseumah:
"Omo is a fantastic talent in the high jump and is built for this event. Omo is 6-feet-tall and has great jumping ability. At Huntley High School, Omo won the Illinois state title and has jumped 5-foot-8 many times. With the proper training and approach work, it's my belief that Omo will contribute greatly, not only at the BIG EAST level, but at the national level as well. Omo has the raw talent to become an All-American and I feel that she's going to surprise a lot of people in the next few years. Her goal is to jump 6 feet and I have no reason to believe that Omo won't accomplish that and much more at MU."
