Auburn Equestrian Rides against Kansas State and Oklahoma State
March 11, 2009
AUBURN - The Auburn equestrian team travels this weekend to Manhattan, Kan., to face Kansas State on Friday at 9 a.m. CT and to Stillwater, Okla., to face Oklahoma State on Saturday at 10 a.m. CT.
"We have to take on Kansas State first," said Auburn head coach Greg Williams. "It'll be the first time in Auburn equestrian history to travel there, so we're looking forward to that opportunity."
The Tigers are 6-2 on the season having defeated No. 1 Baylor 11-9 on March 7. The Wildcats are 4-8 on the season with their last win coming against South Dakota State on March 8.
"We'll then travel to Oklahoma State, which we have been to before," said Williams. "I think statistically their Western team is No. 1 in the country. On the Western side, we're going to have to look for great rides out of a lot of riders, but we're going to have to look for continued great rides out of two people, Paige Monfore and Kim Pope, that have led consistently all season."
The Cowgirls are 6-5 on the season with their last loss coming against Texas Christian on March 8.
