She was in second or third place in the Region 4 open rider standings for most of the fall. However after all the shows were completed Alexis Rand of Long Island University - C.W. Post College (pictured) was on top. This meant the senior from Poughkeepsie, New York represented Region 4 at 2017 IHSA Nationals in the Cacchione Cup Competition. Meanwhile LIU - Post captured their second Region Title in four seasons, clinching in the Spring with one show remaining.

Only four people who competed in Region 4 shows during the 2016-17 regular season showed at 2017 IHSA Nationals and two of them are in this picture. From Seoul, South Korea, New York University senior Laura Jung (on right) was second in individual walk-trot at Zone 2 Zones hosted by Skidmore College on April 8th. Not only did Jung go forward to IHSA Nationals but so did her coach. 1989 Virginia Intermont College graduate Ashton Phillips (on left) had coached both New York University and Princeton University for over a decade but in 2016-17 he finally got to coach them in the same region! While Jung and LIU-Post's Mallory Slack (in individual intermediate over fences) were second in their respective classes at Zones, Phillips won the Alumni Flat on April 8th to earn the only blue ribbon for a Region 4 rider that day.
Stony Brook University finished second in the 2016-17 Region 4 team standings. From Smithtown, Long Island, Samantha Harvey of the Seawolves (pictured) finished her senior year as a Regional Qualifier in novice flat. While Stony Brook will host the third show of the fall on October 15th the Seawolves will essentially be at home twice before Thanksgiving as NYU and Princeton co-host at Olde Towne Equestrian Center on November 5th. Olde Towne is operated by Stony Brook head coach Myrna Treuting (not pictured) and is the Seawolve's home base.
Two Molloy College undergraduates and one alumni rider qualified for Regionals last season. One of the two undergraduates is Meghan Whittaker (pictured). From Hicksville, Long Island Whittaker qualified for Regionals in advanced walk-trot-canter during the March 5th Columbia show (this photo actually dates from the March 6th, 2016 Columbia show during which Whittaker won a blue ribbon in beginner walk-trot-canter).
When LIU-Post won the Region last season they ended a two-year string of titles won by St. Joseph's College. As usual St. Joseph's will host the Region 4 season opener at Good Shepherd Farm the first Sunday in October. From Manorville, Long Island Lexi Metz (pictured) was one of five St. Joseph's undergraduates to qualify for Regionals last season, doing so in both intermediate flat and novice fences. Unlike everyone else whose photo appears on this page at the moment Metz may be entered at the first show of the season as an undergraduate. A great many Region 4 riders earned diplomas since last season which could make the playing field even (which it is anyway as everyone is tied at zero until the first class of the day on October 1st).
It won't surprise this writer if many members of the class of 2017 turn up riding alumni at Good Shepherd on opening day. Save for a few seasons when Zone 3, Region 4 had the edge, Zone 2, Region 4 has routinely had the most registered IHSA Alumni Riders each season this century. Last season over 20 different human beings showed alumni at least once in Region 4 including 2002 LIU-Post graduate Maria Pape (pictured, holding "Bijou;" Pape was Maria Triolo as an undergraduate, during which LIU-Post was simply C.W. Post College). Pape won the Alumni Flat Class at Regionals on March 26th before placing sixth in the division at Zones on April 8th.
If you look at the list of schools which competed in Zone 2, Region 4 last season you will notice that Nassau Community College is not among them. NCC has not fielded an IHSA team for a few seasons now, but one of their alumni had a very good day at the Alumni Tournament of Champions event in Ringoes, New Jersey on June 4th. She is Francisca Martinez (pictured), and after starting the day with a third in 2'3" fences Martinez won the blue ribbon in alumni flat. Another Region 4 alumni rider who did well that day is Molloy graduate Kathleen Rainis (not pictured), who was second in both of the classes that Martinez competed in.
