Kansas State English Team Makes it Three in a Row
Oct. 27, 2002
Sophomore Allison Woodworth was crowned High-Point Rider for the second consecutive show Sunday at Fox Creek Stables on the way to Kansas State's third consecutive team win. The Wildcat team total of 40 points set a school record for the most points ever scored in a single show. Freshman Lauren Demmel earned Reserve High-Point honors with her second-place finish in intermediate fences and first-place finish in intermediate flat.
"I am really proud of the way the women rode today," head coach Lindsay Breidenthal said. "They all stayed strong throughout the weekend, which lead to a very successful weekend."
Woodworth picked up her first winning ribbon in open fences and was second later in the day in open flat. Junior Sarah Zurliene earned her second first place in intermediate fences. Sophomore Natalie Bennett and junior Melissa Thompson won their respective classes of novice fences. Junior Brett Beale placed second in novice fences.
Sophomore Anne Brammeier earned a second ribbon in walk/trot. Freshman Summer Hamil and sophomore Natalie Poholsky placed third in novice flat and advanced walk/trot/canter. Junior Stephanie Angalet posted her first win of the year in beginner walk/trot/canter. Junior Kelli Wilson placed first in the second section of novice flat, while junior Janelle Orr earned third. Sophomore Christy Conforti tallied five points for herself by placing second in the second section of advanced walk/trot/canter.
Junior Jessica Gittleman (walk/trot) and sophomore Sarah Waxman (intermediate flat) had performances Friday that enabled them to be the first two English Wildcats to point-up, qualifying them for postseason competition. The first level of postseason competition is regionals, to be eligible must earn 35 points throughout the year. If a rider is in the open division, she only needs to earn 28 points. Points from the previous year carry over, unless a rider is in an open division. The top three competitors at regional competition go on to zone competition. The top two in zone competition qualify for nationals.
