No. 7 TCU Set For Senior Day Saturday

March 2, 2016

FORT WORTH, Texas - No. 7 TCU will close out its regular-season Saturday, hosting No. 8 Kansas State at 10:00 a.m. CT in Springtown.

"Our meet against Kansas State will be bitter sweet in two ways," said TCU Director of Equestrian Haley Schoolfield. "It is the final home meet for a very special and decorated class of seniors who excel in all areas of life. It is also our last time to host Kansas State, whom is a powerful and well coached team. All told, we are working hard on making some minor adjustments and riding strong in our last home meet on Saturday."
