Across two shows, Wilsberg placed first twice in open equitation over fences along with a second place finish in open equitation on the flat.

Berglund earned his third shutout of the season Saturday as he registered four saves in the 2-0 semifinal win over Wells College, before adding a season high seven saves in the championship final in a 2-1 victory over Keuka. Two of Berglund's stops came at point blank range to secure the title for a third straight year for the Mustangs.
