The National Collegiate Equestrian Association announced its 2013 All-America classes on Monday, a list that included three Jackrabbits to one of the three All-America teams, including South Dakota State junior Laura Dunlavy, who earned NCEA First Team All-American in reining.

“Laura goes above and beyond in every aspect of her training with extra work-outs and extra practices,” head coach Megan Rossiter said. “She has a great work ethic and attitude, so it’s great to her earn this recognition for her phenomenal season.”

In addition to Dunlavy, two Jackrabbits earned NCEA Honorable Mention All-American honors; senior Lauren Kerr in equitation on the flat and freshman Jessie Miller in reining.

“We’re also very proud of our honorable mentions,” Rossiter said. “We greatly missed Lauren this semester, she’s a great rider and it’s exciting to see Jessie earn this honor as well.”

The Jackrabbits continue preparations for the NCEA National Championships, which begin on April 18 and run through April 20 at the Extraco Events Center in Waco, Texas.
