Nov. 4, 2009
AUBURN - The Auburn equestrian team (4-1) remained in the top spot in the latest Women's Intercollegiate Equestrian National Coaches Poll. The Tigers stayed there after an impressive win against defending Western national champion Texas A&M on Oct. 16.
"We as a staff are very proud of the team earning and keeping the respect of coaches across the country with their number one ranking," said Auburn head coach Greg Williams. "As always, we will quietly work and not focus on being number one until the end of the season when it counts the most."
The Tigers have wins over eighth-ranked Texas Christian, Southern Methodist, Tennessee-Martin and third-ranked Texas A&M.
In the latest poll, Auburn is ranked first (93 points), Georgia second (86), Texas A&M third (71), Oklahoma State fourth (70), South Carolina fifth (67), Baylor sixth (43), Kansas State seventh (42), Texas Christian eighth (28), New Mexico State ninth (23) and Fresno State 10th (20). Also receiving votes was South Dakota State with four and Tennessee-Martin with two.
The collegiate coaches competing under the Varsity Equestrian Championship umbrella initiated the national poll. The poll will be released bi-monthly with the next announcement scheduled for Nov. 17, 2009.
Auburn travels to Bethany, Conn., and Dover, Del., to face Sacred Heart and Delaware State this weekend.
