Texas A&M senior victorious in reining final
Tonganoxie High graduate Maggie Gratny helped the Texas A&M University western team win a national title at the Varsity Equestrian National Championships on April 17 at the Heart O'Texas Fair Complex in Waco, Texas.
A 2006 THS grad, Gratny, now a senior at A&M, won the program’s first individual championship in reining. Her victory in the finals capped a stellar career, during which Gratny totaled 46 wins and 15 MVP honors.
Gratny edged New Mexico State’s Rebecca McReynolds, 133-132.5, in the reining final.

The Aggies defeated Kansas State, 6-2, in the championship round of competition.
Gratny is the daughter of Mark and Linda Gratny.
