IHSA ZONE 1 - REGION 3

Photo
She grew up in Key Biscayne, Florida but now calls Miami home. She is Katarina Alvarez of Mount Holyoke College, and she is seen here with the team step-stool and a pair of blue ribbons she won in intermediate classes at Mount Holyoke's November 16, 2019 home show. At the time Alvarez was competing in her final regular season IHSA show, as she was graduating mid-season. Alvarez had qualified for Regionals in both limit divisions but sadly the coronavirus knocked out all of the Zone 1 hunter seat post-season shows. Therefore it turned out Alvarez went out on top in her final IHSA undergraduate appearance, as she earned high point rider honors that day.

When she rode for Westfield State University as an undergraduate her name was Tammy Curtis and she competed in the hunter seat divisions. Today she is Tammy Cranouski (pictured), and the 2004 Westfield State graduate is not only a regular player in Zone 1, Region 3/5 Western shows she also is the IHSA Alumni Director! Cranouski is seen here at a December 2016 show after having placed second in the Alumni Western Horsemanship class.

On opening day he needed only one point to qualify for Regionals in limit flat and received three. That white ribbon for Miles Grossman of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst (pictured) made him one of the first riders in the region to qualify in this division under it's new name (it was previously known as novice flat). From Larchmont, New York, Grossman also qualified for Regionals in limit fences, making him one of 15 Region 3 riders to point out of that level. On the day this photo was taken (which was November 16th), UMass tied host Mount Holyoke for high point team with 41 points each.

From Saddle Brook, New Jersey, Magdalena Zajkowska (on right) was the only Williams College rider to qualify for Regionals during the 2019-20 season. Zajkowska (pronounced 'Zy-cough-ska') pointed out of introductory equitation early in her junior year. Zajkowska is seen here with Williams head coach Lisa Demayo after having won what is now called a pre-novice equitation class at the November 16th Mount Holyoke show.
Photo
Bennington College qualified three riders to Regionals in 2019-20, including Lucinda Royte (on left). From Brooklyn, New York, Royte is seen here with Bennington head coach Tara Lowary prior to competing in the first section of novice equitation at the November 16th Mount Holyoke show. Royte needed five points to qualify in the division and won the class to get seven and move into the limit levels.
Photo
Like Bennington, Hampshire College also qualified three riders to Regionals. Head coach Kathy Roberts (on left) is seen here with Helen Murray, who was a beginner walk-trot-canter rider when this photo was taken at the October 27, 2018 Mount Holyoke show. From Middletown, Connecticut, Murray qualified for Regionals in novice equitation during the 2019-20 season. Less than 24 hours after hosting an IHSA show on November 2nd of 2019 there was a fire at Muddy Brook Farm, the facility that both Hampshire and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst western team train at. The Chronicle of the Horse published an article on the fire which can be read here. At the November 16th Mount Holyoke show riders who placed first were asked to donate their prize to Muddy Brook. Riders had many prizes to choose from, as the goal was to replace much of the tack and other essentials that were lost.
Photo
Westfield State University finished seventh overall in the Region 3 hunter seat team standings and also had three undergraduates who qualified for Regionals (in addition to Western alumni rider Cranouski and hunter seat alumni rider Samantha Trase in both alumni flat and fences). Owls head coach Adria Pandolfini (on left) is seen here with Abigail Bradley-Gilbert, the latter of whom had already qualified for Regionals in novice equitation when this photo was taken on November 16th. From Northampton, Massachusetts, Bradley-Gilbert was one of 13 riders who would have competed in novice at Regionals had the season continued beyond March 12th.
Photo
Springfield College had but two regional qualifiers in 2019-20 yet the Pride finished sixth overall in the Region 3 hunter seat team standings. One of the two qualifiers is Madison Cyr (pictured), a senior from Cumberland, Maine who like Bradley-Gilbert of Westfield State had qualified in novice equitation.
Photo
Amherst College finished fifth overall with 191 points. The Mammoths qualified four riders through to Regionals including Lauren McNeil (on left). Seen here with head coach Jen Wilda, McNeil pointed out of intermediate flat during the fall. From Plainfield, New Jersey, McNeil was scheduled to go abroad in the spring of 2020 and was to miss Regionals as a result. It turned out that everyone missed Regionals due to the coronavirus, so like many others McNeil will hope to earn enough points in intermediate fences and open flat in 2020-21 to make a Regionals appearance in her senior year.
Photo
Five points ahead of Amherst in fourth place was Smith College. Seven Smith riders qualified for Regionals, including Victoria Bajtay (on left) in both limit flat and intermediate fences. From Vancouver, Washington, Bajtay (whose last name is pronounced "Buy Tie") qualified in intermediate fences on November 16th the day this photo was taken. On the right is Pioneers head coach George Halkett, who formerly coached Albion College in Michigan and has now coached Smith for three seasons.
Photo
After many years in Zone 1, Region 4 Worcester State University has now been a member of Region 3 for two seasons. And in 2019-20 the Lancers finished third overall with 207 points. From left to right are Worcester State teammates Alexis Zielonka and Eleanor Murphy, both of whom claim Worcester, Massachusetts as their hometown. Murphy qualified for Regionals in novice equitation while Zielonka pointed out of introductory and even won her pre-novice class on November 16th shortly before this photo was taken. It should be noted that the Lancer's third-place finish this season was their highest in program history.
Photo
There was a huge gap between second and third place in the Region 3 hunter seat team standings. The University of Massachusetts at Amherst finished 102 points ahead of Worcester State for second overall in 2019-20. 12 UMass hunter seat riders qualified for Regionals, including Molly Granahan (pictured). From Lawrence Township, New Jersey, Granahan pointed out of both limit divisions during her sophomore year. While 12 UMass hunter seat riders would have been eligible for Regionals, 14 of their Western riders not only qualified but got to show in Western Regionals on March 1st. UMass won the four-team region race by 32 points over Mount Holyoke and would have fielded a full Western Team at the March 21/22 Reedsville, West Virginia Semifinal had that not been cancelled. UMass won their first Region 3/5 Western Region Title in ten years and third in program history.
Photo
There was a large gap between first place and second in the Region 3 hunter seat team standings. Mount Holyoke College finished 73 points ahead of UMass - Amherst to win their 12th consecutive Region Title. Thanks to their continued winning ways (at least 35 confirmed Region Titles and their ability to advance a full hunter seat team to IHSA Nationals all but three times between 1997 and 2019) the Lyons are usually entered at all the annual Tournament of Champions invitational series events. Seen here with Jim Arrigon, who is the founder of the TOC series, is Sierra Dunn of Mount Holyoke. Another IHSA rider who claims Northampton, Massachusetts as her hometown, Dunn is seen here at the Winter Tournament of Champions event in Hardeeville, South Carolina on January 25th after having placed second in intermediate flat. Mount Holyoke had two teams entered that day, with their "Paws" team placing fourth overall with 30 points (UMass, with one team entered that day, was third with 32 points). While Savannah College of Art and Design - which hosted the 1/25/20 TOC show - won the TOC series trophy for the seventh consecutive year Mount Holyoke was second overall which gives the Lyons that honor for at least three seasons and counting.
