West Liberty-Salem student Rachel Davis has accepted an opportunity
to compete in the equestrian program at the University of Tennessee-Martin.

UT-Martin currently ranks ninth in the nation in team equestrian.
Equestrian is recognized as an Emerging Women’s Sport at the Division I level by the NCAA. The Emerging Women’s Sport tag allows the possibility of equestrian becoming an official NCAA sport in the future if enough schools add a program. Currently, equestrian at the college level is governed by the National Collegiate Equestrian Association.
