Gustafson and Grobbel Dominate First Level (February 15, 2014)
The Albion College dressage team started the day off with a bang at their one-day competition held at the University of Findlay on February 15.
The two Albion first level riders dominated their class. Team captain Paige Gustafson (Dexter/Dexter) scored her personal best at an IDA competition, finishing in first place with a 71.6%. Fellow teammate and junior Megan Grobbel (Berlin/Armada) followed her in second place with a score of 69.3%.
Other respectable scores earned by Briton riders include Emma Stapley (Rockford/Rockford), who finished with a 66.4% in her upper training level class. New to the dressage team (and current hunt seat team member), sophomore Ann Armstrong (Janesville, WI/George Parker) competed in lower training level and scored a solid 64.8%.
By the end of the day and amongst stiff competition, the Albion A team finished in sixth place and the B team finished in fifth place.
