Oklahoma State, Kansas State Win on Day 1 of the Big 12 Equestrian Championship

RELEASE: March 29, 2013
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: Andrew Minnick

Stillwater, OK
- The No.3 ranked Oklahoma State Cowgirls and No.4 Kansas State Wildcats both won today in Stillwater, and they will meet tomorrow in the Big 12 Equestrian Championship finals. Oklahoma State punched their ticket to the finals in dramatic fashion after nearly blowing a 6-2 lead, and being saved by their final rider.

With a 4-0 win in Horsemanship and 2-2 tie in Equitation over Fences the top seeded Cowgirls held a 6-2 lead over Baylor halfway through the match. But after OSU dropped reining 2-1, the Bears won 4 points in Equitation on the Flat to tie the score at 7-7. It was Cowgirl Junior Ali Rose that saved the OSU's day by earning a 159-149 win. It was the team’s only point in Equitation on the Flat and the deciding point of a thrilling match.

The Wildcats had it a little easier. Though they were technically the lower seed (they were #3, their opponent TCU #2) the Wildcats have arguably been the best NCEA team recently, and they showed that against the Horned Frogs Friday. A sweep by the western team and strong performance by the hunter seat team gave Kansas State an 11-5 win and a shot at the Big 12 Equestrian Championship.

The Cowgirls and Wildcats have met twice this season. Oklahoma State won the first meeting 15-7. Kansas State won the most recent meeting 11-8. Both teams won at home.

Baylor and TCU will meet in the third place match. The championship match and third place match both start at 10am C.T.
