GO WILDCATS

Wildwood, Mo. The Kansas State equestrian team performed well at the IHSA Hunter Seat show in St. Louis this weekend bringing home six first place finishes and numerous girls earning points toward qualifying for regional competition.

 

Allie Archer led the Wildcats with two first place finishes, while Jenni Wright, Christine Fosnacht, Christina Costello, and Katie Mellon picked up wins as well. Archer was named High Point Rider for her performance at Saturday’s show.  

 

Celia Gaches made her debut for the 2008-09 season as she brought home a third place finish in Novice Equitation on the Flat, while Wendy Wert made her last appearance at an IHSA show during her collegiate career and finished second in Novice Equitation over Fences.

 

“We had a very good weekend,” said Ashley Foster, Hunter Seat head coach. “A lot of our riders got the opportunity to get more experience in the show ring. Allie Archer was named the high point rider of Saturday’s competition and she really had a standout weekend. I am very proud of how much she has improved lately. Wendy Wert also rode very well on Saturday and put in a fabulous over fences round in her final IHSA show of her collegiate career. Many of our riders also earned good points which will put them closer to qualifying for regional competition.”

 

Kansas State’s next varsity competition will be at home on November 21 as Oklahoma State comes to Fox Creek Farm.  The show is set to begin at 11 a.m.
