MANHATTAN, Kan. -
"It came down to the final point and we came through," head coach Ellen White said. "This gives the team confidence heading into tomorrow."
Despite dropping Fences 3-2, Baylor earned the 6-4 Hunter Seat victory. Goldman earned another 83 for a point and Fergusson's 76 garnered the other point.
Holding a one point lead, Baylor looked to hold on in Reining and did just that. With each sqaud earning a point and two ties, it came down to Shelbey Jackson's ride. She equaled her opponent's 72.5 to pull out the 9-8 win. Barbara Aitken's 72.5 earned the point and MVP for the Bears.
Baylor will remain on the road for a competition against Oklahoma State on Saturday beginning at 10:00 a.m.
