COLUMBIA, S.C. - The fourth-ranked Gamecock equestrian team travels to Manhattan, Kan. this weekend as South Carolina faces No. 6 Kansas State on Friday. It will be the Gamecocks' final competition of the fall semester.
"We're excited about hitting the road one last time this semester to face a very talented Kansas State team," head coach Boo Major. "Kansas State has a terrific Western team, and they've got a skilled Hunt Seat group as well, so it's going to be a great competition. I think our girls have looked good in practice this week and I feel like we'll be ready for the challenge."
The Gamecocks (2-2) are coming off a loss at Georgia on Oct. 23, while the Wildcats (3-2) are competing for the first time since defeating Baylor in a tie-break on Oct. 15.
South Carolina's Hunt Seat team is 2-2, while the Western team is 2-1.
South Carolina last competed against Kansas State on April 16 at the Varsity Equestrian National Championships. The No. 10 seed Gamecocks lost 6-2 to the sixth-seeded Wildcats in the semifinals of the Western bracket.
