MARTIN, Tenn. – The University of Tennessee at Martin equestrian team plays host to its second straight nationally ranked opponent to start the 2016-17 season, as the Skyhawks welcome No. 1 Auburn to the Ned McWherter Agricultural Pavilion. The competition will take place on Thursday, Sept. 29 and will begin at 1 p.m.

UT Martin opened its season last Friday with a gutsy showing against No. 4 Texas A&M, as the Skyhawks traded blows with the visiting Aggies before falling by a 12-7 margin.   Monica Zoromski paced UT Martin in Hunt Seat, as the sophomore out of Saukville, Wis. won her head-to-head matchup in both equitation on the flat (77 points, MOP) and equitation over fences (80 points). Making her collegiate debut, Randi LaChance also secured a team point in equitation over fences (81 points) while tying in equitation on the flat (78 points). Claire Ottinger’s 71-point performance in equitation on the flat also provided the Skyhawks with a team point.

In the Western discipline, Brittany Woodard (72 points) and Bobbie Piddock (71.5 points) were each responsible for garnering team points in horsemanship. Sammi Felts’ 67.5-point effort in reining provided the Skyhawks with a point in reining.

Auburn will be making its season debut after winning its fourth national championship in program history in 2016. The Tigers have been ranked No. 1 nationally in every NCEA poll since Nov. 17, 2015 under head coach Greg Williams, who is in his 22nd season at the helm.
