Makayla Davis, who participates in WAHSET, the Washington High School Equestrian Team, is state bound in two events and has the potential to qualify for a third.

She earned three firsts last weekend at a district meet, winning the barrel event with a time of 15.159, pole bending with a 21.589, and the figure eight event with an 18.339.

Competitors must finish in the top three in the same event at two district meets during the season or break a record to qualify for state.

Davis, who had already placed in the barrel and pole bending events at a prior meet, was disqualified in the figure eight last time around and has one more chance at it at a final district meet in April.

State competition takes place in Moses Lake in May.

Makayla is a sophomore at Wahkiakum High School and is the daughter of Crystal and Dave Davis.
