Margaret Swanson Picks Up "Lyon of the Week" AwardFirst year riding team member Margaret Swanson has been named "Lyon of the Week" for the week of November 3-9. Swanson helped Mount Holyoke to a High Point Championship at the Amherst College Intercollegiate Horse Show on Saturday. She earned High Point Rider accolades after notching first place results in her sections of the novice fences and intermediate flat divisions. It was the second time this season that she earned High Point Rider recognition. Her first came at the University of Massachusetts Intercollegiate Horse Show on October 4. As a team, Mount Holyoke was nearly perfect in its victory at the Amherst Show. The Lyons racked up 12 blue ribbons en route to the team title (47 points). With their third High Point Championship in a row, they extended their cushion over the University of Massachusetts in the Zone 1, Region 3 standings. Mount Holyoke will enter the spring portion of its slate with a 24 point advantage.
