Equestrian Team Breaks School Record

Equestrian Team Breaks School Record
The equestrian team. Katelyn Langford, Lauren Rice, Alexandra Mueller, Kelsi McGlone, Claire Jarvis and team captain Sela Fine competed for Scranton. Robert Hermes, assistant director of Recreational Sports, oversees the club.

This year's equestrian team has made Scranton history, with six members of the team competing in the regional show, the highest number ever. While an observer might see the riders easing through the course, team captain Sela Fine said the art of being an equestrian is far more complex than one might think.

"A lot of people aren't aware of the fact that, as a team, we show up to the shows and are randomly assigned a horse to ride for our specific classes. We aren't given any time to get to know the horse's habits but are put to the task of figuring that out while trying to perform perfectly in the class," Fine said. 

Robert Hermes, assistant director of Recreational Sports, testifies to the team's well-earned accolades and deserved spots in the regional competition.

"They are an amazing group of women who are dedicated to their sport," he said. "I admire the work they put in and how far they have come as a club in my years overseeing them. They are a testament to the important opportunities afforded by the growing sports club program at Scranton."
