    FRESNO, Calif. - The Bulldog equestrian team trounced New Mexico State 15-5 and three Bulldogs picked up MVP in Fresno State's home opener at the Student Horse Center on Saturday.

    "I was very happy with the performance the whole team delivered today," English coach Julia Scrivani said. "This is the outstanding riding I see everyday in practice and it was wonderful to see everyone was at the top of their competitive edge."

    The Bulldogs' Lauren Crivelli (Horsemanship), Dayle Fischer (Equitation over Fences) and Macy Wilson (Equitation on the Flat) delivered the top performances on a day that featured strong showings throughout the event.

    "Today's performance reflected what our team is capable of achieving," Western coach Stephanie Reeves said. "While we had some outstanding individual performances, the real accomplishment was seeing the ladies come together as a team to win 15-5."

    Fresno State (4-4) is off for the next three weeks before hosting Stanford on Oct. 29.
