MU…ET multiple states and disciplines in one weekend
Ten hawks western and hunt seat headed to the booming metropolis of Martin, TN to compete in an NCEA scrimmage against The University of TN, Martin this past Friday. The hunt seat team brought along senior Chelsea Campbell, junior Jackie Yeager, and three freshmen, Abagail Postle, Megan Ward, and Caroline Hurst. The western group was made up of seniors Leah Moore and Jamie List, junior Katie Reed, and sophomores Dana Rossman and Megan Perry.
The hunt seat team started off with a bang winning the over fences portion of the show with points being won by Jackie, Chelsea, and Megan. The horsemanship riders completed their patterns well with Megan Perry gaining the point for Miami. Next we moved onto the equitation on the flat pattern with the point being won by Abbie Postle on “Big Tony”. The reining riders didn’t hold back and again Megan Perry was able to secure the point for Miami.
