From North Attleboro, Massachusetts, Emma McConville of Stonehill College (pictured) led the 2019-20 Region 4 open rider standings with 80 points and would have represented the region in the Cacchione Cup Class at Zones had the season not ended three weeks earlier due to the coronavirus. McConville was also the leading Region 4 open rider in 2018-19 and competed for the cup at 2019 Nationals.

Tessa Archibald's parents are all smiles (as is Tessa, center) because their daughter won her open flat and was second in intermediate fences at the November 3, 2019 Bridgewater State show. A Tufts University senior at the time, Archibald was one of several riders in the running for reserve high point rider that day.
Fall 2019 was the last semester for Kathleen Bolduc (pictured) of Endicott College. From Peabody, Massachusetts, Bolduc qualified for Regionals in Limit flat and would have returned to ride in the division at Regionals had that show not also have been cancelled due to the coronavirus.
All of the photos on this page at the moment were taken at the November 3rd, 2019 Bridgewater State show and many of those pictured were seniors including Emily Mungovan of Boston College. From Barrington, Rhode Island, Mungovan is seen here in front of the Boston College team banner before placing third in intermediate flat that day. Mungovan was one of four members of the Eagles to qualify for the Regionals show that never was, pointing out of intermediate flat later in November.
In fact all the riders up until this photo were members of the class of 2019 or 2020. This photo has one rider who also graduated in 2020 and one who is back for another season. On the left is Samantha Bowden of Bentley University and on the right is her teammate Mackenna Dillon. A regional qualifier in previous seasons, Bowden finished her senior year sixth overall in the Region 4 open rider standings. Dillon was a junior in 2019-20 and qualified for 2020 Regionals in both open flat and intermediate fences. Dillon also finished tied for tenth in the Region 4 open rider standings even though she was showing in intermediate fences when the season started. It should be noted that Region 4 was able to hold all eight of their planned regular season shows (seven in the fall and one the first weekend of March 2020) so anyone who did not qualify for regionals was either graduating or would need to earn the needed points the following season to compete at 2021 Regionals (knock wood).
How about a photo of a team advisor and a sophomore (at the time)? Though the lighting leaves something to be desired we present Bridgewater State University team advisor Diane Nicol (on left) and Madison Elliott of the Bears. 2019-20 was the first year BSU had varsity status and thus fell under the Athletics department umbrella as opposed to being a club sport as in season's past. Today's show at Legacy Stables in Middleboro, Massachusetts was the first the Bears had hosted as a Varsity team and therefore all BSU hands were on deck to do their part. Though Elliott's one ride that day resulted in a fourth in intermediate flat the sophomore from Centerville, Massachusetts pointed out of both that division and limit fences over eight shows. Elliott was one of six BSU Bears to qualify for the cancelled 2020 Regionals show.
We don't know if she is the Brandeis team photographer but Jia Yu "Susie" Wu (pictured) sure has a better camera than the one this writer used that sunny day in Middleboro (the temperature reached sixty degrees, not bad for a November 3rd in Massachusetts). From China, Wu had already qualified for Regionals in limit flat at the Boston University show and placed second in intermediate flat at the Bridgewater State show the day this photo was taken. Wu was one of five Brandeis University riders to qualify for Regionals in 2019-20.
Three Region 4 schools could claim exactly two of their riders qualified for 2020 Regionals. They are Wellesley College, Wheaton College and Babson College. One of the two Babson riders to qualify is Mohammed Hassan (pictured) in introductory equitation. From Oman, Hassan is yet another of the many seniors (Region 4 and beyond) whose final IHSA season ended when all shows after March 8th were called off because of covid-19. As stated elsewhere on this site as well as on the Region 4 page, this writer's heart goes out to all the riders who have since graduated but did not get to compete in any 2020 post-season shows.
Had Regionals taken place the final weekend in March Babson's Hassan would have been one of seven riders with the opportunity to compete in the individual introductory equitation class at Regionals. Another of the seven would have been Mirieille Wando of Boston University (on left, with Terriers assistant coach Eileen McNamara). A senior from Los Almos, New Mexico, Wando was one of six Boston University riders to qualify for Regionals. The Terriers were Region Champions by 27 points over a Stonehill team which had captured the 2019 Region 4 Region Title. Had Zone 1 Zones taken place the first Saturday in April Boston University would have faced the University of New Hampshire, Mount Holyoke College, Sacred Heart University and the Region 1 Champion (Roger Williams University was ahead in a close, four-way team race with two shows remaining) in the Team Competition with the top two schools advancing to Nationals.
