Devon, Pa.—May 26
Nancy Hooker watched from the in-gate on her tiptoes as one by one, her competitors in the NAL Adult Jumper Classic at Devon couldn’t quite measure up.
“I knew I was beatable. I left the door open a little bit and there were some real competitors out there tonight,” Hooker said. “It was nerve-wracking to go first in the jump-off; when I was warming up, I just thought to myself, ‘I’m just going to have to make everybody chase me and hope they make a mistake.’”
