SPRINGTOWN, Texas - The No. 6 ranked Frogs fell short to top-ranked Georgia on Friday at Turning Point Ranch in Springtown, Texas, 12-6.

Director of Equestrian, Haley Schoolfield
"Obviously we don't love today's outcome but we won't overlook the many exceptional rides. Each event showed us places we are very strong and places we can improve. We will work diligently to improve over the next week as we look ahead to TAMU."

The Rundown
TCU fought a hard fight against No. 1 Georgia, riding extremely close scoring rides against the Bulldogs. The Frogs met their match; four rides were lost by a point or less.

Sophomore Patty Gill had the high point of the meet with an 84-point ride on Calisto in Equitation over Fences; her first MOP of her young career. The Frogs finished Fences 2-2 against the Bulldogs, and Flat brought the overall Hunt Seat score to 6-3 in Georgia's favor. Senior Jayme Omand had the Frogs' lone point on the Flat, while Gill and Raegan Rast earned their pair over Fences. It looked like Alex Beneson earned her point as well, but it ended up as a tie point.

In Western, the Frogs went 3-6 overall but fought their way through it. The Bulldogs edged TCU with every ride but the Frogs' determination and talent didn't fade. Cydney Benes and Laska Anderson earned a pair of points for TCU in Horsemanship, while freshman Tessa Lindberg earned the lone point in Reining. It seemed freshman Adrianna Adams had earned her point but her ride ended up as a tie against UGA's Jordan Carpenter.

Sophomore Patty Gill
"Getting my first MOP was a great feeling especially earning it against the number 1 team in the nation. It was extra special because I got to ride one of my favorite horses!"

Next Up
TCU will travel to College Station to take on the current No. 2 team in the NCEA, Texas A&M, on Oct. 26.
