Mary McCormick leads the U.S. effort, followed by Alicen Divita in ninth place and 2006 WEG Aachen gold medalist Megan Benjamin in 11th place.
After the compulsory round, the U.S. team took an early lead in the team vaulting competition at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games. On Oct. 6, the United States scored 7,207 to lead over perennial powerhouses Germany (6,996) and Austria (6,990).
“We went out there, and we just took charge,” said Devon Maitozo, coach and team member of the U.S. team, the Free Artists Creative Equestrians. “I feel like we did one of the best sets we’ve ever done. I saw people reaching their potential in a lot of places and very few mistakes.
