Western puts in a strong showing at College of the Sequoias

Stanford's western squad traveled to Visalia, CA to compete over two days at the College of the Sequoias.

Saturday's competition featured some standout performances. Freshman Alina Benavides won her first IHSA blue, and junior Logan Hehn made his return to the show ring a winning one, just weeks after foot surgery. On Sunday, the team led off the day with a win in reining by senior Sabrina Wilson, who finished the day as Reserve High Point Rider. Alina Benavides added another first place finish to her string, and the Cardinal continued to deliver consistent, quality rides throughout the competition to come home with the High Point Team tricolor ribbon.

Stanford competes next at home, hosting Region U of the Intercollegiate Dressage Association on October 31, 2010. This will be the first intercollegiate dressage show ever hosted at Stanford.
