CHARLESTON, S.C. – The College of Charleston equestrian team will look to carry the momentum of a pair of strong finishes into the Clemson Show at Garrison Arena on Saturday in Pendleton, S.C.

The Cougars finished second at Georgia Southern two weeks ago but widened its lead in the regional standings. CofC took first at the Lander Show on Jan. 30 to claim the top spot in the region.

At Georgia Southern, senior Victoria Bauer started the day by winning open fences, followed by freshman Shannon Rice winning her section of intermediate fences.

Sophomore Jackie Lundsted closed out the jumping portion of the day winning novice fences. Freshman Sammie Barton and Mia Vawter each won their sections of advanced walk, trot, canter and novice flat, respectively. Regional qualifiers for the team so far this season are Jenna Terribile in walk, trot, canter and Hannah Showell in intermediate flat.
