No. 2 Auburn Equestrian Defeats No. 4 Oklahoma State 12-8
Feb. 21, 2010
AUBURN - The No. 2 Auburn equestrian team defeated No. 4 Oklahoma State 12-8 Sunday at the Auburn Equestrian Center. The Tigers improved to 9-2 while the Cowgirls fell to 4-4.
"Being tied at the half was a little bit unnerving," said Auburn head coach Greg Williams. "Our reiners really bailed out the Western end today and that was kind of nice to see. Our Horsemanship has been almost unbeatable, and it was kind of fun to see the reiners step up the way they did today. They were the bright spot today.
"I have to give a lot of credit to Coach (Lindsay) Neubarth and Coach (Lisa) Helfer. The way they've led this team through now, they're in perfect position to keep the momentum all the way through April."
