Manhattan, Kan. - The Kansas State english equestrian team finished out the weekend with a flawless record after they secured High Point Team honors with 39 points at the third and final hunt show of the weekend.

Woodworth placed first in Open Over Fences B and Open Flat B, while Wright won Intermediate Fences and Intermediate Flat B. In addition, the team accumulated eight other first place finishes, bringing the weekend’s total number of first place finishers to 29.

“We had a really great weekend,” assistant coach Meghan Cunningham said. “We were able to correct a lot of things that we had been working on all week and we were able to build a substantial lead toward the Regional Championship. I’m really excited about the fact that we haven’t lost yet and we just need to continue winning. The riders did a great job today.”
This concludes the fall season for the english team. The Wildcats will return to action at the Southern Illinois Hunt Show on the weekend of February 19-20.
