Malvern native Lauren Fabiano, a senior at South Carolina, has been named a 2018 All-American by the National Collegiate Equestrian Association (NCEA).
A graduate of The Agnes Irwin School in Rosemont, she was selected to the second team in Equitation Over Fences, a discipline that judges riders not only on their ability to negotiate a course of jumps on their horses, but also on their style and position while they do it.
Fabiano is 7-4 this season in Equitation Over Fences, including a 4-1 record in the Southeastern Conference (SEC). She earned four Most Outstanding Performer (MOP) awards this season:
- on Oct. 13 at South Dakota State
- on Oct. 27 against Oklahoma State
- on Nov. 17 against Auburn
- on Feb. 24 against Auburn
Fabiano was named SEC Rider of the Month in November. Prior to this season, she had never competed for South Carolina in Equitation Over Fences. She competed exclusively in Equitation on the Flat, where she owns eight career victories.
