Equestrian Rides In Two Shows Over The Weekend

GENESEO, N.Y. - SUNY Geneseo senior Kate Huppe and sophomore Gillian Berardi each rode to first-place finishes as point riders on Saturday as the Knights took third in their final home show of the season. On Sunday, sophomore Liz Louie grabbed a blue ribbon at St. Lawrence to pace the Knights. 

Huppe rode to first in the Pre-Novice Flat, while Berardi snagged first in the Introductory flight, both as point riders. Sophomore Katy Munn placed second in Open Fences and Open Flat while senior McKenzie Angus rode to second in Limit Fences and Limit Flat. Senior Jordan Testa nabbed a third place finish in Intermediate Fences and Intermediate Flat while junior Cheyenne Otto nabbed a fourth-place finish (Intermediate Fences) and first-year Samantha Shepard finished fifth in Limit Flat. The Knights tied St. Lawrence for third place out of eight teams in their final home show of the season.

On Sunday, Louie led Geneseo with her first-place finish while junior Felicia Ponikau finished third in Novice Flat. The Knights took fifth in the show, capping their second weekend of competition.
