Sophie Reiter, a member of the Oak Knoll Class of 2013, has committed to join the Equestrian team at Texas A&M University in the fall.
Sophie, joined by her parents Abbie and Marc, signed her National Letter of Intent on November 14. The Aggies are 11-time and current defending national champions.
"I love the southern school atmosphere," Sophie said. "I love the history and the culture of the school, and I especially love the assistant coach of the equestrian team Linzy Woolf."
Sophie, a Summit resident, has been riding since first grade. Sophie currently rides at Hunter's Crossing Farm in Long Valley under coach Robert Beck.
"I am so happy on a horse," she said. "I'm competitive in all aspects of my life but I enjoy being able to ride competitively."
At Oak Knoll, Sophie is a member of the Green Team, Red Cross Club, Helping Hands Club, and is a Peer Leader. She also volunteers her time with the New Vernon Fire Department, Bridges Outreach, and as a riding coach to children. Sophie plans to major in communications at Texas A&M.
