St. Andrews Dressage maintains first place in region
The St. Andrews Presbyterian College Dressage team remains in the first place position for the region after a weekend Intercollegiate Dressage Association (IDA) competition at Averett University in Danville, Va.
Averett University took the first three spots to earn them a share in the regional standing’s top spot, with St. Andrews Team A and St. Andrews Team C earning fourth and fifth places.
“We had a beautiful fall day at the Averett Equestrian Center with St. Andrews fielding 14 riders,” said Dressage Coach Jackie Dwelle. “Lindsey Agaliotis held onto her regional lead by convincingly winning the upper training division with a score of 70 percent. Erin Hudson rode a good test to earn third place in first level with Donna Fowble close behind her. Less than five percentage points separated the top six riders in first level.”
St. Andrews riders Lauren Parker, Olivia Taylor and Paige Tillison were fourth, fifth and sixth respectively in the lower training level division. Kacie Meyers placed third in introductory level at her first IDA show with Jenna Rash placing sixth in the same division.
The Dressage Team will continue the season as host of a competition Saturday at the St. Andrews Equestrian Center.
