Hunt Seat captain has high hopes

During a recent meeting Captain CJ Giacomini, ‘12, said "We have an awesome team set-up this year and I believe we can do really well." After the two shows the team accumulated a total of 32 points. Several riders were counted as point riders, meaning that their place points counted towards the teams overall points.

At the Sun, Sept. 25 show these riders included: Jessica Middleberg ‘14, Alexi James ‘13, Stephanie Walker ‘15, Ashleen McCullough ‘15, and CJ Giacomini ‘12. All of the points added up to a total of 11 points.

Co-Captain Allie Veach ‘14 agrees with Giacomini, saying "We are doing really well at our shows and hopefully we can keep the positive energy going." At the Sun, Oct. 2 show the team totaled 21 points.

The next show will be hosted by Wilson on Sat, Nov. 12 in the Hawthorne Arena.
