PORTSMOUTH, RI- The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth finished third at the Roger Williams Intercollegiate Horse Show Association competition on Saturday.

Kathryn Gardner was third in Novice over Fences and second in Novice Flat. Freshmen Colleen Waclawik and Elaina Hoeppner were first and fourth, respectively, in Advanced Walk/Trot/Canter. Lauryn Mort was first in Beginner Walk/Trot/Canter, and Jacklyn Reis and Natalie Fernberg were second and fourth, respectively in the Walk Trot Division."
