(Crookston, Minn.)- The University of Minnesota, Crookston Hunt Seat Equestrian team had a solid showing at the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) Regionals on Sunday, March 1 in River Falls, Wis. The Golden Eagles ended the regular season as the number two team in the region and took home the Reserve High Point team award. 


The Regional Championship began with Nicole Veres (Jr, Random Lake, Wis.) and Kelsey Sherman (Fr, Lansing, Mich.) competing in Novice Jumping, where Veres took fourth place.
