No. 10 Equestrian to Start Season in Delaware

COLUMBIA, SC – The No. 10 ranked Equestrian team is set to head to Felton, DE to take on Delaware State and Minnesota Crookston on Friday, Sept. 23 to open the 2022-23 season. Competition will begin against Delaware State at 9:00 a.m., followed by Minnesota Crookston at Noon.

The Gamecocks head into the season with notable returners, including those of 5th years Trinity Hammerschmidt and Maya Clarkson. Hammerschmidt took home NCEA All-America Second Team honors on the flat, making her just the fourth Gamecock to earn a spot on the first or second team for the discipline.

Both Clarkson and Hammerschmidt were named to the All-SEC Team on the flat, while returner Emma Lane received the nod for reining.

Four Gamecocks were named to the SEC All-Freshman Team including Sophie Mitchell (fences/flat), Kendalyn Herlocker (horsemanship), Tierney Horton (horsemanship) and Chloe VanStone (reining).

The Gamecocks got into action this past week in the bi-annual Garnet & Black scrimmage, with Black securing the 12-6 victory over Garnet.

Fans are encouraged to follow along with in-meet updates on Twitter and Instagram, @GamecockEQ.
