The Albion College Stock Seat team hosted a home meet at the Nancy G. Held Equestrian Center on October 27, where nine teams came to compete in the IHSA double header. The team of Briton riders came away with sixth and fourth place ribbons by the end of the day.
The Open/Reining level started out the show, and Albion senior Katie Petchell (Pinckney/Pinckney Community) clenched the win. New to the team this year and already cleaning up is third-year student Katie Heim (Zionsville, IN/Zionsville Community), who gained some important points with first place in the Intermediate II division.
But none were as consistently stellar as second-year student, Morgan Carey (Hemlock/Saint Charles Community). Carey swept her entire Novice division, winning Champion in both of her classes.
Other notables include Megan McNeil (Onondaga/Jackson Christian) and Elizabeth Petschar (Iron Mountain/Kingsford) who both pointed out of their divisions and qualified for the IHSA Regional Championships.
