Eleven riders from the Albion College stock seat team competed as individuals at the IHSA regional championships on February 14 at the MSU Pavilion, and two alumni riders representing Albion joined them as well.
After some very stiff competition, team co-captain Taylor Sandberg (Spring Lake / Spring Lake) was named region champion in the advanced division, and sophomore Jourdan Tonti (Livonia / Livonia Churchill) won region champion in intermediate. Both riders will now move on to compete at the IHSA western semi-finals, which will be held in Moline, Ill. on March 19 and 20.
Albion alum Katie Petchell, '13 also swept her alumni reining division winning region champion. She will travel to compete at a separate IHSA western semi-finals location in Murfreesboro, Tenn. on March 19 and 20.
The results from the semi-finals competitions will determine if any Albion riders will go on to the IHSA national championships.
