BROOKINGS – The South Dakota State equestrian team started the spring season strong with a 16-3 win over University of Minnesota-Crookston on Saturday at the DeHaan Equestrian Center.

The Jackrabbits’ fifth straight win raises the team's record to 5-3 on the season.

Despite a slow start in the equitation over fences event, where the Golden Eagles took three of the five points, the Jackrabbits managed to sweep the reining, horsemanship and equitation on the flat phases of the competition.

"The girls started out too relaxed, but then came back into the rest of the events hungry," assistant coach Kamerra Brown said, "I'm very proud of freshman Marielle Golden, she had a fabulous start to her second semester. She's a talented rider and is stepping up and showing her potential by putting herself out there."
