TRI Schools' Showjumping League: 3 Wins In A Row

The latest leg of the TRI School showjumping league took place at Lurgan on Saturday, 4th November.  The competition began at 9am with the novice team (Zoe Dickey, Myah McLean, Katy McLean and Chloe Gillespie) starting the day off with a super result of 5th place out of 30 school teams.


 Next was the turn of the open teams with our first team Ballymena Academy Red (Taylor Hunter, Charlotte Wylie, Courtney Hamilton and Ellen Harkness) finishing on a super score of 4 faults which put them into the lead at the early stage of the competition.  They finished a very respectable 7th place.


Ballymena Academy Navy team (Alex Byrne, William Hamilton and Tori Surgeoner) was 11th to jump out of 19 teams and by this stage they knew that they needed a clear score and in a faster total time of 97 seconds to beat Assumption Grammar.  They held their nerve to finish on a clear score and in 89 seconds to land their third win in the league and are maintaining their position at the top of the leaderboard with two competitions left to decide on the Ulster Schools Champions for 2017-2018
