WACO, Texas — The Georgia Bulldogs prevailed over Texas A&M to capture the overall crown at the 2010 Varsity Equestrian National Championships on Saturday.

The 2010 championship is Georgia’s fifth in eight years and third in succession at the Heart ‘O Texas Fair Complex.

It was also a banner day for a pair of Georgia sophomores. Michelle Morris and Emma Lipman became the third and fourth Bulldogs ever to win individual national championships. Morris defeated Ally Blais of Oklahoma State to take the title in Hunt Seat Equitation on the Flat. Lipman defeated her UGA teammate, freshman Carly Anthony in winning the Equitation over Fences event.

“This was just an incredible day and, I believe, the most special, most meaningful championship we’ve won so far,” Georgia coach Meghan Boenig said.  “It was harder this year because the competition was so fierce. We had to fight for everything we got.”
