Southern Riverina news - - SPORT -

The Tocumwal Pub­lic School eques­trian team rode to third place over­all at the Baras­toc In­ter­school Qual­i­fier com­pe­ti­tion held in El­more re­cently.

Al­most 200 pri­mary and sec­ondary school-aged stu­dents from across Vic­to­ria and NSW com­peted in 45 teams.

Jemma Reid, Macken­zie Loughridge and Alexan­dra Laker, along with a ded­i­cated sup­port crew, braved some cold weather to com­pete in the two day event which in­cluded show jump­ing, dres­sage, show classes, games and handy mount classes.

Over the week­end points were al­lo­cated to the placeget­ters and at the end of the com­pe­ti­tion th­ese were tal­lied and the top six teams from pri­mary and sec­ondary were sashed.

‘‘The team from Tocumwal did ex­tremely well with all three girls con­sis­tently fin­ish­ing in the places or top ten,’’ team man­ager Ni­cole Laker said.

‘‘At the end of the week­end we were ex­cited to hear they placed third over­all for the Pri­mary Com­pos­ite Com­pe­ti­tion.

“We’re ex­tremely proud of the girls and ex­cited that they rep­re­sented the school in the In­ter­school Chal­lenge.

‘‘This has been our best re­sult to date and all have qual­i­fied for Baras­toc later on in the year.

‘‘We thank the fam­i­lies who took the girls over to El­more and con­grat­u­late all in­volved on the mar­vel­lous re­sult for all their hard ef­fort.”
