Seven Auburn Riders Earn All-American Honors

April 6, 2011

The No. 2 Auburn equestrian team had seven of its athletes receive All-American honors for the 2010-11 season.

Junior Maggie McAlary, sophomore Indy Roper and sophomore Lindsay Portela were first-team All-American selections, and senior Ali Loprete, senior Anna Schierholz, junior Grace Socha and freshman Christina Lin earned honorable mention status.

"I am so proud of our All-Americans," said head coach Greg Williams. "Auburn was well represented in the awards, posting some of the largest numbers in the country and even having two girls earning All-American honors in both of their events. All of the girls across the country receiving this honor are very deserving, talented individuals. I think its great to have so many Auburn riders in that elite group."

McAlary, a hunt seat standout, was a first team selection in both equitation over fences and equitation on the flat. Roper, a western stalwart, also received first team honors in both western reining and horsemanship. Portela joins McAlary as a first-team selection in equitation on the flat.

Schierholz and Loprete earned honorable mention All-American status in over fences, and Socha and Lin were honorable mentions in flat competition.

The No. 1 seed hunt seat riders and No. 3 seed western riders begin competition in search of a national title April 14 at the Extraco Events Center in Waco, Texas.
