SDSU rider named NCEA All-American

WACO, Texas – The National Collegiate Equestrian Association announced its 2013-14 All-America class on Tuesday, and South Dakota State sophomore Raivenne Scott earned a first team selection in reining.

“I’m extremely excited for Raivenne, she put together a great season,” head coach Megan Rossiter said. “As a freshman she had all the skill, but just needed a little more confidence, and this season she stepped in the ring ready to win at ever meet.”

A Cornelius, Ore., native, Scott enters this weekend’s Independent Championship with an 8-0-1 record in reining, with one MOP on Sept. 28, at Baylor, when she carded a season-high score of 76.

Scott becomes the sixth Jackrabbit to earn All-American honors, the fifth in reining.

Previous Jackrabbit Equestrian All-Americans:

Angela Gebhart – 2011 Varsity Equestrian All-American (Reining)

Helen Lauth – 2012 NCEA All-American Honorable Mention (Reining)

Laura Dunlavy – 2013 NCEA All-American (Reining)

Jessie Miller – 2013 NCEA All-American Honorable Mention (Reining)

Lauren Kerr – 2013 NCEA All-American Honorable Mention (Equitation on the Flat)
