Equestrians ride to reserve high point award at Western show test test test test

Competing in its first show of the spring semester, Liberty University's Western equestrian team was awarded reserve high point honors on Saturday's first day of the two-day event at Martin Community College in Williamston, N.C., co-hosted by North Carolina State.

The Lady Flames had a few riders qualify for postseason competition and several others capture individual ribbons. Freshman Hannah Cole placed first in Intermediate I Horsemanship on Saturday, when sophomore Megan Brandt was the top finisher in Advanced Horsemanship, junior Brianna Bass won the Intermediate II Horsemanship division, senior Leah Ofalt finished first in Novice Horsemanship, and senior Anya Devan took second in Open Reining. Senior Anna Davidson earned second placed in Intermediate II Horsemanship on Saturday and Sunday, when Bass also placed second in Novice Horsemanship.

Bass (Intermediate Horsemanship) and Ofalt (Novice Horsemanship) qualified for the Feb. 25 Regional Championships at St. Andrews (N.C.) University on Saturday before sophomore Maddie Temple (Intermediate Horsemanship) qualified on Sunday. Junior Erin Mays (Novice Horsemanship) qualified for the postseason during Liberty's last show, Nov. 5 at St. Andrews.   Riders have one more weekend of regular-season shows, Feb. 17-18 at St. Andrews, to qualify for regionals, where the top two riders advance to compete at the Western Semifinals. The top four riders from that event will qualify for the May 3-6 IHSA National Championships in Harrisburg, Pa.
