She was hard to beat over the fences during the fall of 2023. Sophia Gianoulis of St. Lawrence University (pictured) told us that she won four of her five open fences classes prior to the start of the Saint's November 19th show. And then the senior from West Hartford, Connecticut made it five of six with a win in the first class of the day. Changing the subject slightly this writer wants to say that the pulled pork served at the concession stand on November 19th (courtesy of Gianoulis's teammate Corrine Jacoby's Mother) was the best he had at an IHSA show since the fall of 2013! Changing the subject back St. Lawerence scored 49 points for the second day in a row and the third time in six competitions to take a 57 point lead into the winter break.

Gianoulis is qualified for Regionals in open fences, as is Madyson Diaz of Syracuse University (on right). The sophomore from Eastchester, New York is seen here with teammate Sarah Zide during that same November 19th St. Lawrence show. Zide, a senior from Woburn, Massachusetts, is qualified for Regionals in both limit flat and intermediate fences. A day earlier Zide was Reserve High Point Rider. Syracuse may have won the lone show that the Saints did not win, taking high point team honors at the November 4th S.U.N.Y. - Geneseo show.
The University of Ottawa finished the fall in third place after St. Lawrence and Syracuse. GiGis head coach Amy Aubin (on left) ironically used to compete for region rival University of Guelph. Ottawa's Kennis Ross (on right), a fourth-year student from Peterborough, Ontario was second in her open over fences debut on November 19th a week after pointing out of intermediate fences. Later on the 19th Ross's fourth in intermediate flat meant she will ride twice at Regionals on March 30th.
Another Amy, in this case Amy Noonan, is the head coach of the University of Guelph. Noonan is seen here with Emma Metzger (on left), who was second to Gianoulis in her open fences class on November 19th. Though Ottawa and Guelph are the only two Canadian schools in the eastern time zone currently competing in the IHSA there are other Canadian schools which compete against both the Gryphons and the Gigis within a Canadian College circuit.
State University of New York at Geneseo head coach Kim Sanford (not pictured) was extremely happy with Erin Noger's open fences ride on "Aram" on November 19th, telling her it was "the best ride ever." A senior from Wiliamson, New York, Noger poses with Aram after the round. Noger is one of at least four Geneseo riders qualified for Regionals, having pointed out of both intermediate divisions ahead of the November 19th St. Lawrence show.
From Liverpool, New York, Gabriella Moran of Le Moyne College (on left, with head coach Brenda Peck) was the first member of the Dolphins to compete on November 19th, placing fourth in intermediate over fences. A sophomore, Moran is qualified for Regionals in both limit divisions.
One went to Regionals and the other cantered in an IHSA show for the first time! Eric Carlson (on right), a Clarkson University senior from Buenos Aires, Argentina, made his debut in the pre-novice division on November 19th, finishing second out of three riders. Two classes earlier his Clarkson teammate Abigail Faul (on left) was third in novice equitation. This sent the senior from Oswego, New York to Regionals in the division.
Speaking of the town of Oswego, New York there is a branch of the State University of New York there. And that branch has an IHSA team. And that team is co-coached by husband-and-wife Dan and Jill Bergstresser. And while Dan was not present at St. Lawrence on November 19th Jill was, and she brought three of her Lakers riders including Mackenzie Lawrence. A junior from Newark Valley, New York, Lawrence (on left) poses with Jill Bergstresser after placing second in novice equitation on the 19th which was the best S.U.N.Y. - Oswego ribbon of the day.
While Region 2 was done with hunter seat competition until February 24th St. Lawrence University had one more show to compete in during 2023. St. Lawrence was one of 16 schools to compete at the Holiday Tournament of Champions invitational in Long Valley, New Jersey on December 2nd and one of only two schools with two separate teams in the competition. Scarlett Haas of the St. Lawrence "Brown" team poses with head coach Mary Dreuding (on right) following her limit fences ride which produced a fourth-place ribbon. A sophomore from Huntington, Long Island (who won a ride-off for High Point Rider versus teammate Harper Eskey and Zide of Syracuse on November 18th), Haas turned out to be on the better of the two St. Lawrence teams that day. "Brown" finished sixth with 25 points while the Saints' "Scarlet" team (which did not have Scarlett with two "T's" on it's roster) was eighth with 23 points. The Saints will host the final two Region 2 shows of 2023-24 on February 24th and 25th as well as Regionals on March 30th.
