Nine equestrian team members place in Omaha

Wednesday, January 27, 2010
Team finishes third and moves three members on to regionals.
Despite struggling on the first day of the event, the LCCC equestrian team finished third at the University of Nebraska-Omaha show on Jan. 23-24. This show was rescheduled from the late October blizzard. The team faced hardships of having the show so quickly after Christmas break, allowing only a week and a half to practice.
Due to losing a few team members, which affects overall team points, the hunt seat team is currently in fifth place in the region. The riders who qualified for the hunt seat regional are: Paige Gentry, Cole Tully and Christina Worrell.

The Golden Eagles will compete in Frederick, Colo., on Feb. 13-14 at the University of Colorado.

LCCC’s equestrian team results:
  • Krystal Baker placed second and fourth in Novice Flat
  • Paige Gentry placed fifth and seventh in Intermediate Fences, third and sixth in Intermediate Flat
  • Emily Hamilton placed third in Novices Fences, first and sixth in Novice Flat
  • Elizabeth Harris placed third and sixth in Advanced Walk, Trot, Canter
