AUBURN - The top-ranked Auburn equestrian team plays against Sacred Heart Saturday at 3 p.m. Central in Bethany, Conn., and Delaware State Sunday at 9 a.m. Central in Dover, Del.

"We are really excited to be traveling up to the northeast to compete," said Auburn head coach Greg Williams. "This will be a first to go head to head with both of these schools at their place. While anytime you travel, it is a big challenge to the riders, but I feel like this group is ready to win as a team. They care more about the team as a whole than themselves as individuals."

Auburn is 4-1 on the season with their last win against defending Western national champion Texas A&M on Oct. 16. The Tigers have wins over eighth-ranked Texas Christian, Southern Methodist, Tennessee-Martin and third-ranked Texas A&M.

Riding for the Tigers against Sacred Heart in Hunt Seat Equitation on the Flat are Chelsea Anheuser, Anna Becker, Katie Breedlove and Lindsay Portela with Rachel Cooper as the alternate. Riding in Hunt Seat Equitation over Fences are Dottie Grubb, Maggie McAlary, Anna Schierholz and Grace Socha with Elise Fraza as the alternate.
