Byline: The Register-Guard

Juniors Whitney Bigbee and Emily Moser, sophomore Natalie Harbour and freshman Kira Millard comprise the entire Mohawk High School equestrian team. But in a sport where team size rather than school enrollment is considered for some end-of-the-season awards, 121-student Mohawk competes head to head with teams from Sheldon, North Eugene, Churchill, Siuslaw and North Bend. All four girls compete in various individual events, with Bigbee's fourth-place finish in "Showmanship" being the group's best result at last month's South Valley Oregon High School Equestrian Teams (OHSET) meet. This weekend will be the third and final local competition of the season, with 19 teams from Junction City to Brookings gathering Friday through Sunday at the Oregon Horse Center on Prairie Road. Admission is free. It is in the pairs or team events that Mohawk is most likely to qualify riders for the state championships to be held in May near Medford. Bigbee and Moser team up for the "birangle" event, while all four riders spend much practice time perfecting their "working fours" drill team routine.

In the men's competition, Chris Hansen (55-59, 85 kg.) won his second national title. Iron Works coach Gene Joseph notes that this is Oregon's first national team championship in the sport and predicts that "we'll have an even stronger team next year."
