Only three Region 4 riders survived Zones to compete at 2019 IHSA Nationals last May and only one of three made the top ten. She is Isabella Jarosiewicz of Endicott College (on right, with head coach Bethany Jones). From Boxford, Massachusetts, Jarosiewicz is seen here at Zone 1 Zones last April 6th before placing second in individual intermediate on the flat. On May 2nd Jarosiewicz finished up her freshman year by placing 5th in the nation in the same division at Nationals at the Exposition Center in Syracuse, New York.

Through six fall 2018 shows Stonehill College was chasing down the two Region 4 schools with "Boston" in their name. The Sky Hawks had two very good shows in early 2019 and leaped into first place to capture their first region title in seven years. Stonehill also had six individual rides at Zones. One Sky Hawk who showed both individually and in the team competition at Zones is Rachel Scibek (pictured). From Colchester, Vermont, Scibek was third in both individual novice over fences and team intermediate over fences at Zones in South Hadley, Massachusetts on April 6th.
While Scibek was third at Zones in individual novice fences, Jane Hilsenrath of Boston University (on left) was fourth. Hilsenrath and Terrier teammate Caroline Rakip (on right) watch a replay of the former's jumping round before the placings were announced. More recently Hilsenrath was third in what is now called "Limit equitation on the flat" at the Pre-Season Tournament of Champions invitational in Storrs, Connecticut on September 21st. The hunter seat novice divisions of a year ago are now officially known as "Limit" for both flat and fences.
Boston College spent much of the 2018-19 season in first place and even though Stonehill eventually bumped them down to second overall this was to date their first time ending a season as high as second overall. Niamh O'Sullivan of the Eagles (on left, pronounced "Neve") qualified for Zones which is where this photo with head coach Sheila Brady was taken last April 6th. From Cumberland, Rhode Island, O'Sullivan placed ninth in individual intermediate flat at Zones to conclude her sophomore season.
Two seasons ago Carly Corbacho (on left) competed on the Boston University equestrian team. Last season Corbacho was coach of the Babson College team. Seen here with Corbacho is Julia Stento of Babson, who was tenth in individual open on the flat at Zone 1 Zones last April 6th. Babson is scheduled to host the final Region 4 fall show on November 17th at the prestigious Dana Hall School.
Once is enough, if you want to ride alumni again and again later on! Anneke Bartelsman (pictured) went to Penn State University and graduated in 1998. She briefly joined their equestrian team and rode one single time as an undergraduate. Then a few years later Bartelsman decided to ride alumni. Since she rode below the novice level at her one Penn State show Bartelsman had to be evaluated. Thanks to some lessons following graduation and before the evaluation Bartelsman passed the test and rode alumni for several years in the 2K decade. Then she disappeared from IHSA for a few seasons but returned in 2018-19 and even reached Zones in Alumni Flat. Bartelsman is seen here before placing eighth in the division last April 6th. The moral of the story is if you ride one time at an IHSA show you are eligible to compete as an alumni later on.
Allegra Valberg (on left) has previously coached IHSA teams at Harvard, Framingham State, Mount Ida and Stonehill but today coaches Wheaton College. At Zones Wheaton was represented by walk-trot rider Isabel Blaettler (on right). From Benicia, California, Blaettler placed ninth in the division on April 6th to conclude her senior year. Wheaton is scheduled to co-host with Bentley College on November 2nd.
