OSU equestrian

The Oklahoma Sate equestrian team won its third straight contest Saturday in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

The Oklahoma State equestrian team’s 10-5 victory against New Mexico State on Saturday in Las Cruces, New Mexico, extended the Cowgirls’ win streak to three with only one meet to go until the Big 12 championship.

OSU won three head-to-heads in equitation on the flat and reining and two head-to-heads in horsemanship and equitation over fences.

In the flat, senior Maggie Drysch earned her second straight Most Outstanding Performer award for her 78-point performance. Drysch also scored in fences.

In reining, freshman Hannah Mitchell also earned her second straight MOP with a career-high 75.5-point outing. Mitchell’s victory was her eighth straight. She hasn’t lost a head-to-head since the Cowgirls’ opening weekend meet against Delaware State on Sep. 24.

Senior Miranda Reed also set her career-high score with a 77.5-74 victory in horsemanship against New Mexico State’s Katlynn Crine.

The victory moves the No. 3 Cowgirls to 7-2, which is their best record through nine meets since the 2007-08 season.

Up next, Oklahoma State returns home to face No. 6 Fresno State on Senior Day at 10 a.m. Saturday in Totusek Arena in Stillwater.
