Canby equestrians ride tall
The Canby High School equestrian team left the state competition in Redmond May 10-13 with some state title hardware and a third place team trophy.
The Cougars, it seemed, were everywhere and scoring nicely during the action. And when it was over, Canby's riders had scored 275 points to finish behind only Forest Grove (321) and Oregon City (320) in the team race for large division schools.
Hanna Jacobs and Maisie Rowley snagged a state title in Working Pairs, while Rowley was able to double back for a state championship individually in Hunt Seat Equitation. Joining the ranks of state champs was Kira Tipikin, who won the title for Driving.
Just missing a state title were the Freestyle 5+ team of Abby Weyer, Laney Augustus, Addy Crouch, Jenny Tibbets, Maisie Rowley, Katelyn Wing, Jordyn Tietz, Lauren Iverson, Megan Schweitzer, and Olivia McKenzie, who got second place.
Rowley would also crack the top-10 in terms of individual points, scoring 34 for 10th place, and was second overall for high point team contributor with 130 points, which earned her reserve champion status.
