The Wolves finished the day with 16 points. Freshman Catherenne Hogeland competed in the Advanced walk/trot/canter division and rode to a third place finish for an individual best during her first year of collegiate competition.

“All of our riders put in nice rides this weekend with many riders making huge improvements in their riding even if it wasn’t rewarded by the judges," remarked Wesleyan head coach Jessica Denniston. "I am proud to say that everyone rose to the challenges of the day and supported each other to some really great rides.”
