Meet the new team officers
The equestrian team gathered together last week for one of the most important meetings of the year: electing the new exec members. These new officers will lead the team forward into a future full of new opportunities and challenges as we look forward to the 2013-2014 school year. Congratulations to the each of the following:
Danielle is a junior marketing major. This will be her second year on MUET’s exec board, serving as secretary for 2012-2013. She has been riding for eight years and currently competes on the hunt seat team in the novice division. She loves the incredible teammates, coaches and horses that have taught her so much about riding. The equestrian team has been the biggest part of college for her and she is excited to give back as president next year.
Vice President–Allie Drost
Allie is a junior Accounting major and Communications minor. As the incoming Vice President, Allie hopes to give back to the team in any way possible since it has given her so much. She competes over fences and on the flat for the hunt seat team and has been riding for thirteen years. Allie has had a blast serving as the hunt seat team captain this year and can’t wait to be on exec again for her senior year with the team.
Abby is a first year Zoology major and Neuroscience minor from Columbus, Ohio. She has been riding for twelve years and competes both on the flat and over fences for the hunt seat team. This will be Abby’s first year serving on exec and she is thankful for the opportunity to be more involved. She is looking forward to being a part of MUET’s continuing success.
Krysten is a junior Bioengineering major with a focus in Pre-med from Copley, Ohio. She has been a member of the hunt seat team since she was a freshman and has been riding for nine years. She enjoys spending time with the team and its horses as well as taking care of her own horse. Krysten is excited to serve as fundraising chair for MUET in the upcoming school year.
Passing the torch on, current president Tom Schoen feels confident that these ladies will continue to lead the team into success because of their dedication. He feels that because MUET is made up of such exceptional young people, they are bound to do great things.
A second round of elections will take place in February to elect new team captains, secretary, public relations, website, travel, and bookkeeper.
This weekend, the western team will be headed to Ohio University for a double header Sunday. Good luck to all the western riders as they compete in their first horse show of the semester!
