Call it a four-peat or a grand slam, by any name or title, the Lake equestrian team recently earned its fourth consecutive state title. The team competes in the Ohio Interscholastic Horse Show Association (OIHSA).
What makes their accomplishment more significant is the fact the team has only been in existence for five years.
"I have never seen a group of girls get along as these girls do. They are always helping each other," said Jenna Workman, who founded the team in 2009 and serves as a coach. "I'm so glad they work so well together and its a great accomplishment for the entire team."
Workman, who coaches the team along with her mother, Connie Workman, is currently a senior at University of Toledo; while her mother also serves as  the chairman of OIHSA District 2.
As a freshman at Lake High School, Jenna Workman was frustrated that Lake didn't have a team, she thus rode for Perrysburg that year and Toledo Christian Academy her sophomore year.

A highlight of the chapter was Junior member Meagan Wise who was a member of the National FFA Chorus. Only four FFA members from the state of Ohio were selected to participate in the elite group. The chorus entertained convention attendees during sessions and performed musical selections during its convention concert.
On that Thursday the chapter visited the National Agricultural Career show and the FFA shopping mall.
