Lombardi Named Big 12 Rider of the Month

MANHATTAN, Kan. Kansas State equestrian rider Alyssa Lombardi was named one of four October Big 12 Riders of the Month. Lombardi earned her honor in Horsemanship.

Alyssa is very deserving of being named Big 12 Rider of the Month,” said K-State head coach Casie Maxwell.  “She's always been a very hard worker, but things are really coming together for her this season. That is evident through the confidence she brings into the arena each time.”

During the month of October, Lombardi led the Horsemanship squad with a 3-0 record against ranked opponents. Lombardi holds a career record of 12-9-0, which includes the 3-0 mark this season. 

Last season, Lombardi was named to the Academic All-Big 12 First Team and Big 12 Commissioners Honor Roll. She was awarded the K-State’s Most Outstanding Award in Western recognizing one student athlete rider per class for their leadership to their teammates throughout the year.

K-State will return to their home turf for a showdown with Big 12 matchup against No. 7 TCU on Friday, November 13.
