Georgia Advances to Semifinals

Meghan Boenig came to Georgia in October of 2001 as the first head coach of the Georgia equestrian program. During her time with the Bulldogs, Boenig has led the program to unprecedented heights including six National Titles, six Southern Equestrian Championships, five reserve championships, a Southeastern Conference title, and a 50-3 dual-meet record at home. Boenig also helped lead the charge of restructuring Varsity Equestrian to the National Collegiate Equestrian Association in the fall of 2011.

Georgia claimed the Southeastern Conference Championship with Boenig at the helm during the 2014-15 season. It was the program’s first ever-SEC title since the sport was adopted by the conference in 2013. At the SEC championship, Boenig had two riders named to the SEC All-Championship team. The Bulldogs then rode to a reserve championship finish at the 2015 NCEA National Championship after posting a 9-4 record in the regular season. Under Boenig, Georgia put eleven riders on All-SEC teams and claimed six of a possible eight SEC Rider of the Year honors. Boenig also had seven riders earn NCEA All-America honors and 13 named to NCEA Academic All-America Teams. At the national championship, Boenig saw two riders earn Most Outstanding Player awards and three riders named to the NCEA All-Championship team.

During the 2013-14 season, Boenig led the Georgia equestrian team to the program’s sixth National Championship. After finishing the regular season with a 9-3 dual-meet record, the Georgia equestrian team earned a second-place finish at the Southeastern Conference Championship. Under Boenig, seven riders were named to the All-SEC teams, two freshman selected to the SEC All-Freshman team and two riders were named as the SEC Riders of the Year. Under her guidance, six riders landed seven spots on NCEA All-American teams, while 12 earned a place as NCEA Academic All-Americans and another 19 were named to the NCEA Academic Honor Roll. Boenig also saw two riders crowned as the Most Valuable Players of the NCEA Championship, as well as three riders named to the NCEA All-Championship team.

Boenig is a 1999 graduate of Berry College where she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Biology. Prior to her arrival at Georgia in October of 2001, she spent two years as an assistant coach at Texas A&M during which time she also earned a Master’s Degree in Animal Science.

Her two seasons at Texas A&M were deciding factors in her hiring as the Bulldogs’ inaugural head coach. Georgia sought a coach with the knowledge of working hand-in-hand with a university’s Animal Science community in forging a new equestrian team, something the Aggies had enjoyed during her tenure there.

A native of Powder Springs, Ga., the former Meghan Nolan is married to Markus Boenig. They are proud parents of two sons, Josef and Mathew.
