Gamecocks Fall in Finale to Auburn

“I can’t say how proud I am of how well these girls have done this week,” head coach Boo Major said. “I think they’ve been fantastic. Our competition (Saturday) didn’t go the way we wanted it to. The four girls who rode on the flat rode beautifully; they rode well. Hats off to Auburn, they have fantastic riders and did a great job (Saturday).”
In the first ride, Madison Brayman was not able to top Caitlin Boyle, falling on Marquee, 247-234. Up next, Ashton Alexander had the winning ride against Madison Sellman on Vinnie, 241-235.
