FRESNO, Calif. - Fresno State head coach Becky Malmo didn't know what to expect when taking her team to South Dakota State for the first time.
Battling cool and rainy conditions in Brookings, S.D., the No. 8 Bulldogs dropped their dual match to the Jackrabbits 13-7.
Hewson-Budnik scored an 81 while Bullock and Shada had a 66 and 71, respectively.
The Jackrabbits won four of five matches in Equitation over Fences, which has been a strong event for the Dogs this season. Katie Nenneker was stellar for the Dogs scoring a season-high of 86, but she was on the only rider to win a match. Jennifer Jory scored a 67 but lost her match by one point.
The Dogs also dropped four of their five matches in Western Horsemanship, despite strong rides by all five student-athletes. Adriane Smith won her match with a score of 74.5. Each of the other four riders has higher scores than that, led by Asheline Beeson (79) and Rebecca Flood (78.5).
The Dogs return to action Oct. 25 hosting No. 5 Oklahoma State for a dual match at the Student Horse Center.
Join the State - Fresno State! The Bulldogs open the 2008-09 home schedule when the Oklahoma State Cowgirls come to campus on Oct. 25 at 9 a.m. Admission is free.
