HOLLY, Michigan – For the first time in its nine-year history, the Holly High School Equestrian Team is saddling up to ride into regional competition. The seven girls on the team, including five seniors who have been riding together since middle school, will be at the Shiawassee County Fairgrounds this weekend, said Vicki Dellinger, parent and secretary for District 1.

“We’ve been working four years for this,” senior Carolynn Que said.

With different members of the team specializing in different classes at the shows, Que is the only one whose horse competes in jumping, while senior Erin Miyamotl is great at trail riding. A weekend ago, senior Jessalyn Jarrell received a standing ovation from the judge when she took first in reining. Junior Margaret Dellinger competes in many events, receiving the high point award for Division B, and overall out of 179 riders. It was the first year for high point awards.

HOLLY, Michigan – Nothing much compares to racing down a snowy slope on nothing more than cardboard and duct tape, but its part of what makes Camp Wathana’s popular “Cardboard Classic Sled Race” so much fun.

With four different age group competitions, teams of up to three racers will compete to see which sled made entirely of cardboard glides across the finish line the fastest. Duct tape may be used to hold the cardboard sleds together, but wood, plastic, hardware, string and staples are off limits due to safety concerns. Paint can be used for decorative purposes and only the bottom of sleds may be waxed.
