Congratulations to Ingalls in that she won the Reserve High Point Rider of the show.

Freshman Michael Kocher of Tryon won both his flat and fences classes.  Kocher won the over-all High Point Rider of the competition title.  Kelly Difiglia was second in both of her novice flat and fences classes, bringing home great scores for SCAD.

Other first place winners of the show were Ryan Genn in intermediate flat, Lauren McGuire in novice fences, Hannah Friedman in advanced walk/ trot/ canter, and Remy Wells in beginner walk/trot/canter.

Overall the team won its third consecutive show of the season.  The team won the IHSA with 42 points. Currently leading the region, the team also has the highest score for the Cacchione Cup.
