June 15, 2012
MARTIN, Tenn. – The University of Tennessee at Martin Equestrian team has added Western rider Taylor Evans to its roster. Evans will begin competing for the Skyhawks this fall.
“I am very excited that Taylor chose UT Martin,” Ashley Thompson, UT Martin assistant equestrian coach said.
Evans, who prepped at Henry M. Jackson High School, is from Bothell, Wash. She won the 2011 Northwest Coordination Committee (NWCC) Reserve High-Point; the Washington Paint Horse Association year-end high point; and the APHA Youth Championship and Youth Halter high-point.
“Taylor comes from a family of accomplished athletes and coaches and will come in in with a great understanding of the dedication and passion needed to be a strong contributor to the team,” Thompson said.
Taylor will compete for the Skyhawks in Horsemanship.
“I chose UT Martin because of their hard work ethic, competitive and knowledgeable team members, exceptional coach staff, and smaller school environment which I know will ensure a great college experience,” Evans said.
