MARTIN, Tenn. – Ali Barros, of Medway, Mass., will join The University of Tennessee at Martin equestrian team this fall where she will ride English for the Skyhawks, said UT Martin head equestrian coach Meghan Cunningham.
Barros has received numerous ribbons in equitation and the jumpers at prestigious horse shows from Ocala to Saugerties. She was selected to participate in both the Level 1 and Level II 2011 USHJA Emerging Athletes Program.
I’m very excited about competing with the Skyhawks in the fall and earning a degree in visual communications at UT Martin,” Barros said. “The friendly team and breath-taking campus made my decision easy.”
Barros, the daughter of Charles and Aggie Barros, rides with Mary Beth McGee of Herring Brook Farm in Pembroke, Mass.
“We’re excited to have Ali join the Skyhawks equestrian team,” Cunningham said. “Her riding experience, her strong academics and her sportsmanship will make her a great fit with our program.”
