Auburn Equestrian Wins Overall National Champioship

By on April 21st, 2013 in Other Sports 1 Comment »

It was partiularly fitting this evening that Toomer Oaks went out on their last  weekend by being rolled in celebration of another Auburn championship. The Auburn Equestrian Team held a celebration at Toomer’s Corner Sunday evening for wining the 2013 NCEA Overall National Championship.

The Tigers defeated Georgia, 3-1, in a ride-off competition Saturday at the Extraco Events Center in Waco, Texas. Auburn also won the Hunt Seat National Championship earlier Saturday.

Auburn head coach Greg Williams said. “We finished in a tie for points with Georgia for the overall when we won the Hunt Seat. They had to finish all the Western events before we could do our final ride-off. Elizabeth Benson raked in two huge wins in the Hunt Seat, and Cheyenne Cracraft sealed the championship with a great ride in reining. This is a great win for Auburn thanks to Coach (Lisa) Helfer and Coach (Jessica) Braswell and our outstanding seniors.”

Congratulations Tigers! You’ve made us all proud. War Eagle!
