Morrisville, N.Y.: The SUNY Cobleskill western equestrian team closed the semester on Sunday by sweeping a pair of Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) Zone 2 Region 3 shows hosted by Morrisville State College at the Mustangs’ Equestrian Center.

The Fighting Tigers took the day’s morning event by posting a team total of 36 points to defeat the host Mustangs who tallied 33 points and Colgate University who posted a team score of 16 points.

In the afternoon show the Fighting Tigers once again defeated the field as the Orange & Black scored a team total of 31 points to once again nip the host Mustangs who totaled 29 points and Colgate who once again posted a team score of 16 points.

Individually, Cobleskill was led by senior Morgan O’Sullivan, Killingsworth, Conn., Middletown High School, who took High Point Rider in the first show by winning the Open Western Horsemanship competition and placing second overall in the Open Reining competition and who tied for High Point Rider honors in the nightcap by once again winning in Open Western Horsemanship and taking second in Open Reining.

Senior Emily McLaughlin, Delanson, N.Y., Schalmont High School, brought home Reserve Point Rider honors from the day’s second show by taking third overall in Open Western Horsemanship and fourth in Open Reining.
