Equestrian team takes 2nd, looks to catch West Ottawa this weekend

The Hamilton Equestrian Team took 2nd out of 5 teams in their division last Saturday.

Many riders from Hamilton placed in events of all different disciplines.

Rachael Tolsma led the team with 8 placings, Heidi Mihm took home 6 placings, Lydia Phillips had 3 placings, and Lexi Wentzel, Victoria Gutierrez, and Katelyn Krause all finished with 2.
The top two teams in each district goes to district/regionals. If Hamilton maintains this 2nd place position, or improves to 1st, they will go to district/regionals and try to move on to the State to compete for the State Championship.
Hamilton has quite a buffer on 3rd place Zeeland West, who sits 39 points behind the Hawkeyes.
Hamilton trails behind West Ottawa by 9 points, and this Saturday they will be given the opportunity to steal the 1st place spot from West Ottawa.
