Continuing with horsemanship, the Bears posted a 3-2 event score, with points from Charlotte Green, Aspen Crew, and Kaylee Mellott. Green’s 76 was a meet-high mark and earned her the Most Outstanding Player (MOP) honors for horsemanship.

After the break, BU posted another 3-2 finish, winning on the flat. Jenkins, Sam Howell, and Van Allen all notched points, with Howell’s 85 earning Baylor its second MOP nod.

Finishing in the Western arena with reining, the Bears put an exclamation point on the contest, taking the event, 4-1.
