Choate and Pankratz Lead Albion to Win at Home
After a slow start to the morning, solid rides from senior Olivia Choate (Fenwick/Gratton Academy) and sophomore Hannah Pankratz (Bad Axe/Bad Axe), as well as the rest of the Briton stock seat team, helped Albion secure a win in the second half of their double-header at home.
Choate earned a win that qualified her for the IHSA regional show in the advanced division, as did Pankratz, who will head for Regionals in the intermediate division. In addition, at the end of the day, first year riders Liz Rosner (West Bloomfield/Homeschool) and Chantal Chuba (Grosse Pointe Park/Grosse Pointe South) netted a one-two finish in walk-trot that helped secure the team victory.
Other top performers for the young Albion team included Michelle Miele (Bloomfield Hills/International Academy), Elle Root (Alpena/Alpena), and 2010 Semi-Finals qualifier Katie Petchell (Pinckney/Pinckney), who wound up in a five-way ride-off for reserve high-point at the end of the day.
The Britons get a brief break before their next meet, which will find them at Grand Valley State University on November 6.
