Equestrians take on Oregon’s best

Several Hornets earned their second Pacific Northwest Individual Championship awards.

Twenty members of the Enumclaw High equestrian team competed June 15-17 against top competitors from Oregon.

The event was the Pacific Northwest Individual Championship, staged this year at the Grant County Fairgrounds in Moses Lake, Washington. Washington and Oregon take turns hosting the annual competition.

Leading the way for Enumclaw was the Freestyle 5+ group of Sarah Haley, Shaylin Maki, Kylee Brutsche, Lindsay Sogge, Morgan Kelly, Rylee Geddes, Vanessa Sanders, Emma Schmidt, Hannah Thom, Trinity Forristall, Sophia Collins and Ashley Jerke. Not only did they win at this year’s PNWIC, but became champions for the second time.

Another team highlight was turned in by Lindsay Sogge in the keyhole race. She was a top rider in the field, breaking the PNWIC record with a time of 6.844. Sogge also was near the top in barrels, placing second.

Here’s a rundown for the rest of the PNWIC representation.

• Haley, Brutsche, Sogge and Geddes competed in Canadian flag race, placing second. Also in Canadian flag race, the EHS quartet of Kelly, Kayla Brock, Daniela Iacopi and Miesa Floyd placed eighth.

• Savannah Silliman, Brock, Mattea Mackley and Iacopi competed in freestyle fours, placing second.

• Silliman competed in driving, placing third.

• Grace LeSueur competed in individual flags, placing seventh.

• Thom, Forristall, Collins and Jerke competed in in-hand obstacle relay, placing ninth.

• Makayla Watterson and Vanessa Sandes competed in working pairs, placing ninth.

• Brock competed in steer daubing, placing ninth.

The championships wrapped up another stellar season for the EHS equestrian program. The team earned the title as the No. 1 “large school” in Washington for the third year in a row, winning the state meet in May.
