She rode at both of the first two shows and in two completely different levels. Jordyn "Jori" Wendt of West
Texas A & M University (on left, with her Father) was second in novice western horsemanship at the NCTC-hosted
season opener on October 1st. This raised the point total for the senior from Brainard, Minnesota to 36 which
means the next day Wendt competed in the advanced western division where she also placed second. Wendt and
teammate Maggie Murphy (not pictured) were the only Region 2 riders to qualify for Regionals over the weekend
while the Buffs won both shows. WTAMU narrowly defeated the hosts 22-20 on October 1st while prevailing by a
more comfortable 36-20 score again over NCTC a day later.
