St. Andrews Western Team wins first competitions of the season

Laurinburg, N.C. - The St. Andrews University Western Team stands in first place in the region after winning the first two shows of the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA).

St. Andrews holds a nine point lead over North Carolina State University with Virginia Tech in third. North Carolina A&T and Western Carolina University round out the top five.

“The first show is all about figuring out where we are, identifying the strong competitors, and seeing how everyone is riding," said Western Coach Carla Wennberg. "I was so pleased that everyone rallied on the second day in everything; precision, correctness, just more of everything which showed in their riding. It is great to see everyone out here having fun and enjoying being a part of the team.”

In Saturday's competition, St. Andrews earned 36 points to finish just one point ahead of N.C. State.

First place finishes were contributed by Erin Hudson in Intermediate II Horsemanship B, Michelle Hustad in Open Horsemanship B, Katie Mosca in Intermediate II Horsemanship B, and Erin Powell in Novice Horsemanship.
