EQ’s Davis and Day Earn Big 12 Postseason Awards

March 26, 2020

WACO, Texas – Following their success in the 2019-20 season, Baylor equestrian senior Madison Day and junior Rachael Davis picked up three Big 12 postseason awards, announced by the conference office Thursday morning.

Davis is the Big 12 Flat Rider of the Year for the second time in her career and earned All-Big 12 Flat Team recognition, while Day repeated as an All-Big 12 Fences Team honoree.

Baylor has now won five-consecutive Big 12 Rider of the Year honors in flat, dating back to Alicia Gasser in 2016.

“Rachael and Madison have continued to show the kind of consistency needed to be recognized at this level,” head coach Casie Maxwell said. “The Big 12 is a great equestrian conference, so we’re very proud of their efforts and hard work as student-athletes. They are both very deserving of this recognition.”

Davis is now a two-time Big 12 Flat Rider of the Year after previously earning the award in 2018 and is a three-time All-Big 12 Flat honoree. The Woodinville, Wash., native went an impressive 11-2 in the flat and 5-5-1 in fences for a 16-7-1 overall record.

A four-time Most Outstanding Performer, she posted a season-high score of 93 at Texas A&M on Feb. 28. She was a perfect 5-0 in flat rides against Big 12 opponents.

Day earns her second-straight All-Big 12 Fences Team honor after posting a 9-3 record and 3-2 mark in Big 12 play. The senior from Brick, N.J., went 14-9-1 overall with a 5-6-1 record in flat. She earned three MOP honors and posted a season-high score of 86 at SMU in the first meet of the season.

Day is now a four-time Big 12 honoree after being named the Fences Rider of the Year and an All-Big 12 Fences and Flat Team member a season ago.

The Bears finished the season with a 5-8 record and 2-4 mark in Big 12 play, facing 10 ranked opponents in 13 meets. BU finished with a 4-1 home record in 2019-20.
