April 10, 2012
Auburn, Ala. -
The No. 5 Auburn equestrian team is set to compete at the 2012 National Collegiate Equestrian Championships at the Extraco Events Center, April 12-14, in Waco, Texas.
The Tigers are looking to defend their 2011 Overall National Championship and Hunt Seat National Championship.
“This team knows they are a great team and one of the most talented that I have ever seen compete,” Auburn head coach Greg Williams said. “I think now they realize there is no season left after this, so they should hit the intensity level they need. They are an outstanding group, and I don’t think they will let each other down this week.”
The top-seeded Hunt Seat team and the No. 4 seed Western team each received first-round byes and await their opponents for Thursday afternoon’s competition. Hunt Seat will face the winner of eighth-seeded TCU and No. 9 Kansas State, while the Western team will face the winner of fifth-seeded South Carolina and No. 12 Tennessee-Martin.
