Sophomore Janna Wandzilak (Waxhaw, N.C.) was first in Intermediate Fences, while fellow sophomore Maya Johnson claimed first in Beginning Walk/Trot/Canter.
From Colby Sawyer, Dartmouth moved on to UNH's annual fall show where it placed fifth. Sophomore Morgan Curtis (London, England) highlighted the afternoon for the Big Green with a first-place finish in Novice Flat.
Sophomore Isa Francisco (Manila, Philippines) was second in Intermediate Fences, while senior Natalie Colaneri (Jericho, N.Y.) and freshman Courtnie Crutchfield (Boston, Mass.) also claimed the second-place spots in two events. Colaneri was second in Advanced Walk/Trot/Canter, while Crutchfield was second in Walk/Trot.
With her showing at UNH in the event, Colaneri earned a spot in the Regional Qualifiers in the Advanced Walk/Trot/Canter.
