Auburn equestrian team beats SC in tiebreaker

BLYTHEWOOD, S.C.— The Auburn equestrian team remained undefeated
today as it defeated South Carolina in exciting fashion, winning in a
raw score tiebreaker 1472-1469. After four sections of competition, the
SEC foes finished tied 10-10, forcing a raw score calculation that ended
in the Tigers' favor.

"This group is riding well, but more importantly, riding together as
a team," head coach Greg Williams said. "We talked about finding a
way to win, just win. I am very proud of coach Neubarth, coach Helfer
and all of the girls."
 
The Gamecocks (2-1) took both western horsemanship and equitation on
the flat 3-2 and led the Tigers (3-0) 6-4 entering the half.

Auburn battled back to win both equitation over fences and western
reining by scores of 3-2. That tied the score and ultimately gave the
Tigers the win.

In horsemanship, Auburn winners include Indy Roper, who defeated South
Carolina's Maggie Fortune (71.5-70.5) and Stephanie Rucci, who
defeated Haley Thornton (71-67). Chelsea Zillner was the MVP, despite
losing to Jonna Letchworth, 73-69.5.

In equitation on the flat, MVP Maggie McAlary led the Tigers by
defeating the Gamecocks' Carolyn Curcio, 88-77. Auburn's Lindsay
Portela defeated Kimberly McCormack, 85-83.

In equitation over fences, the Tigers were led by big rides from
seniors Dottie Grubb and Anna Schierholz. Grubb defeated Alex Arute by a
score of 84-83, while Schierholz defeated Paige Dekko, 84-67. Auburn's
Maggie McAlary also picked up a win as she defeated Emma Johnson by a
score of 80-63.

In reining, Auburn winners included Paige Monfore over Amanda Pope
(73.5-72.5), Kristin Hansen over Chloe Gray (74-72) and Indy Roper over
Jordan Brown (73-72.5).

The Tigers return to competition Oct. 8 against Delaware State at 3
p.m. and Oct. 9 against Fresno State at 10 a.m. at the Auburn University
Horse Center.
