The Cheff Therapeutic Riding Center in Augusta, Mich. played host to ten stock seat teams from IHSA Zone 6, Region 4 on October 17, and the Albion Britons came away with two more third place team finishes to maintain their third place standing in the region.
Senior Camille Sawicki (Jenison/Jenison) continued the wave of success she built in the first competition of the season when she won in the intermediate division and pointed up into intermediate II, also qualifying her for regionals. Also helping the Britons to their strong finish was open rider Brooke Viele (Midland/H.H. Dow) who finished as the reserve high point rider in the morning show.
Other intermediate division wins came from sophomores Elliot Brinker (Livonia/Adlai E. Stevenson) in intermediate I and Jourdan Tonti (Livonia/Livonia Churchill) in intermediate II.
The alumni division also saw strong performances from Katie Petchell ’13 (Pinckney/Pinckney Community) and Megan McNeil ’15 (Onondaga/Jackson Christian), who each won a section of alumni reining. McNeil was also victorious in alumni horsemanship during the morning show.
Next up for the Briton stock seat team is a double-header hosted by Grand Valley State University on November 21.
