Jumbos Take High Point Team at Spring Opener

On Sunday, March 1, TUEQ clinched High Point team in a nail biting finish that came down to the Walk-Trot division. With record snow fall and temps in the teens and twenties, Tufts didn't have much time to prepare for the rapidly approaching first spring horse show, hosted by Bentley University at Volo Farm. But that didn't stop the Jumbos from roaring back into the lead with wins from Tess Deegan '18 in Walk-Trot-Canter and Da Eul Kim '17 in Walk-Trot. But the biggest win for the team today came when they handed their new coach, Shane Powell, of Evermoor LLC, the high point team ribbon, for his first ever IHSA win.
