First Annual University of Kentucky Polo Ball
To close out the end of the year we wanted to put together an event where all the Equine affiliated clubs at the University of Kentucky could come together. Our Fundraising Director, Libby Graham put together a wonderful event that brought together 115 members across from all different clubs and teams at the historic "Round Barn Stable of Memories" in Lex We can't thank Libby, and everyone who attended enough for such a successful night!
March "Regional Tournament"
After receiving a direct bye to the regional tournament, our Mens Varsity, Women's varsity, and 8 horses were on the road to the Virginia Polo Center. Our Women's team was represented by Monique Whitehurst, Libby Graham, Eva Crossman, Anastasia Vialov, and Molly Hosler. After a good game our Women's team faced a tough loss against Michigan State. Our Men's team was represented by Tommy Huber, Ben Lynch, and Will Green. They played a great game for the win against Virginia Tech, and faced a tough loss against the University of Virginia the following day. Although neither of our teams prevailed to nationals we are thrilled to announce, that both Ben Lynch, and Tommy Huber received all star awards, Molly Hosler received the sportsmanship award, two of our ponies tied for "best playing pony", and we were awarded the "best playing string". The turnout of our horses is very important to us and we are already starting to prepare for next year. Thank you to all the club members that helped out at the regional tournament, and all of the families that came out in support. We could not do it without you all and are looking forward to a great 2018-2019 season!
Our Men's Varsity team represented by Ben Lynch, Will Green, Alex Roth, and Tommy Huber were on the road to Cornell, and the University of Connecticut during the first weekend of February. After facing a tough loss against Cornell, the team returned to put in a good game for the win the following day against the University of Connecticut. Our President Ben Lynch (Junior) was selected to participate in the USPA International Intercollegiate Challenge Cup, where he competed in England. Our Women's team has been competing in many scrimmages, and helping with sets in preparation for regionals. We are proud to announce that both varsity teams received a direct bye to the regional tournament.
We are back into the swing of things to start out second semester. Our women's Varsity team represented by Monique Whitehurst, Molly Hosler, Anastasia Vialov, and Libby Graham, traveled to Michigan State to face a tough loss well played game. Our Men's varsity team represented by Will Green, Tommy Huber, and Ben Lynch traveled to Cornell where they faced a tough loss, but came back to beat the University of Connecticut that same weekend. Our own Eva Crossman (Women's Varsity Freshman) traveled to Manipur, India to compete in the Women's Statehood tournament, where they made it all the way to the National finals where they faced a tough loss. Our ponies are back into work to get ready for regionals. We are off to a strong start to the 2018 year!
