MHS alum named MOP for Reining, co-Rookie of the Year
Freshman Macey Newkirk stood out so much on the University of California Davis equestrian team, that her teammates selected her Most Outstanding Player-Reinier of the Year and co-Rookie of the Year.
Newkirk, a graduate of Monache High School, said this first season had its challenges but she worked hard and was proud to know her teammates saw her hard work too.
“It was a pretty cool feeling to know that my team thinks of me that highly,” Newkirk said.
In an Instagram post from the equestrian team (@ucdaviseq) announced Newkirk’s MOP-Reining selection saying, “Macey finished her inaugural year off with a 4-3-1 record, garnering 4 scores above a 71. Notable rides: She kicked off her freshman debut with 2 wins at the Willis Invitational winning an MOP with Penny against DSU. She scored a career high 73, tying her point against OSUs Hannah Mitchell on Trigg. And also defeated Auburn’s Boo Kammerer with Remi.”
