On March 19, the Washington County Horse Bowl teams competed at the University of Maryland.  

The senior team once again went all the way to the final round, where it finally came in second after a nail-biting, extra tie-breaking round.  

In addition, three of the four team members placed in the top 15 for individual standings, with Zoe Chapelle of Saddles ’n’ Spurs taking second; Kristen Shives of Bits and Bridles taking 13th; and Jessi Stein of Red Ribbon taking 15th. They now have the opportunity to continue studying to compete again in May for a spot on the state team.

The junior team scored a team bonus for having every member of the team score points.

The intermediate team took third place against 13 other counties. Catie Sprankle of Bits and Bridles placed second in the individual standings.
