Nov. 12, 2010

The No. 3 Auburn equestrian team knocked off the first ranked Georgia Bulldogs Friday, winning 13-6 at the Auburn University Horse Center.

"We wanted a great response from the team today following a disappointing weekend before, and they sure did deliver in a huge fashion," said head coach Greg Williams. "This is a great way to head into our midseason break, and get ready for the critical meets and post season in the spring."

Auburn (7-2) won all four events and earned two of the MVPs on the day. Auburn's hunt seat riders remained undefeated, winning 7-3. The western squad picked up a big win, defeating Georgia 6-3.

In equitation over fences, Auburn outscored Georgia 3-2, led by MVP Maggie McAlary. Winners included McAlary, who defeated Kacy Jenkins 90-83, Grace Socha, who defeated Carly Anthony 86-83 and Anna Schierholz, who defeated Isabel Joliceur 80-75.

In western horsemanship, the Tigers defeated the Bulldogs 3-1. Auburn winners included Kristin Hansen over Anna Sasser 70.5-63, Mary Casey over Dana Wilson 72.5-71 and Indy Roper over Michelle Fulcher 69.5-67.5.

In equitation on the flat, the Tigers took four of five points, led by freshman MVP Christina Lin. Winners included Lin over Michelle Morris 81-71, McAlary over Anthony 79.5-77, Lindsay Portela over Katie Hagerty 74-60 and Ali Loprete over Olivia Dorey 72-59.
