Kansas State Upends Oklahoma State to Close Big 12 Season

RELEASE: March 18, 2013
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: Andrew Minnick

No.8 Kansas State University def. Oklahoma State University

The Wildcats were looking to prove that they were back on top of their game. It appears as though they are. A huge question mark just a few weeks ago, Kansas State now looks like a team to watch heading into the big 12 championship and NCEA National Championship.

Their 11-8 decision Saturday was vengeance for an early season loss to the Cowgirls, and a confidence booster.  It was an even match, but K-State Hunter and Western teams got wins, 6-4 and 3-2 respectively, and earned MOP’s in both Hunter Seat Disciplines.

“They just did a fabulous job and it was truly a team effort,” said Wildcat coach Casie Maxwell, “just like our Big 12 conference play has been all year. It came down to every single ride and they did a great job.”

Saturday was the first time all season that both Cowgirl teams lost. So, it may not have been the way Oklahoma State was hoping to head into the post season, but they performed well enough to stay confident. They’ll be contenders in both the big 12 and National Championship competitions, and could get a chance to face off against the Kansas State again in just a couple of weeks.

Final Score: 11-8

MOPs
Reining: Jenna Blumer (OSU)
Horsemanship: Katy Krshka (OSU)
Equitation on the Flat: Madison Wayda (KSU)
Equitation over Fences:  Madison Wayda (KSU)
