IHSA ZONE 2 - REGION 5

Photo
Seen here as a freshman at 2017 IHSA Nationals, Alexis "Lexi" Kupic of Seton Hill University (on left) was tied for first in the Region 5 hunter seat open rider standings through March 8th. The coronavirus forced the cancellation of all IHSA shows scheduled after March 12th, including a show on March 28th which could have potentially broken that tie. Seton Hill head coach Becki Bloom (on right) has guided the Griffins to four consecutive hunter seat Region Titles and their only such titles in program history.


Photo
Tied at the top spot in the hunter seat open rider standings with Kupic is Logan Mayhew of Bethany College (on right, with head coach Beth Johnson). A senior from Morgantown, West Virginia, Mayhew is seen here also as a freshman at an October 2016 show hosted by St. Vincent College at the Grier School. As far as we know, no other 2019-20 IHSA race for high point rider or high point team ended up in a tie besides Mayhew and Kupic in Region 5.

All of the remaining photos on this page were taken during the March 10, 2019 Clarion/Duquesne show at Bloomfield Stables in Belle Vernon, Pennsylvania. And in each case the photo is of a rider who qualified for 2020 Regionals. First up is Alyssa Reedy of Mercyhurst College. From Pittsburgh Reedy is seen here after winning her beginner walk-trot-canter class as it was known at the time. Reedy had qualified for Regionals in the fall of 2018 in walk-trot but qualified all over again this season in what is now called novice equitation (the former walk-trot-canter).
Photo
At the March 2019 show that Duquesne co-hosted Rebekah Thacker of the Dukes (on left, with head coach Linda Stevens) was thought to be close to pointing out of both novice divisions. In 2019-20 the senior from Collegeville, Pennsylvania was the only Duquesne rider to qualify for Regionals. Thacker qualified in what are now known as limit flat and fences.
Photo
From Clearfield, Pennsylvania, Gabrielle Schultz of California University of Pennsylvania holds up a mug she had just received for placing first in novice fences. In 2019-20 Schultz qualified in limit flat but like Kupic, Mayhew, Reedy and Thacker never actually got to ride at Regionals or in another post-season class during their senior year due to the coronavirus. This writer's heart goes out to all the seniors (be they Region 5 riders or elsewhere) who saw their final season as an undergraduate come to a sudden halt.
Photo
University of Pittsburgh head coach Jim Boyce (on left) saw three of his Panther riders qualify for 2020 Regionals including Haley Maher (on right). From West Chester, Pennsylvania, Maher qualified for Regionals this season in limit flat but was only two points from going to 2019 Regionals in intermediate fences when this photo was taken (and she did qualify in the division one show later). Maher was only a junior this season so she still has another shot to return to Regionals in 2020-21.
Photo
Jillian Eberlein of West Virginia University (pictured) was a winner in what some now call "The Old Novice Flat" since there is still a novice equitation class but that one was walk-trot-canter in 2018-19. From Staten Island, New York, Eberlein qualified for 2020 Regionals in limit flat during the fall of her junior year. The Mountaineers finished second in the region to Seton Hill on the hunter seat side. We are still trying to get the western information including the Regional Qualifiers, some of whom would have ridden at the Semifinal held at West Virginia's J.W. Ruby Research Farm had that show taken place.
Photo
Washington and Jefferson College had one Regional Qualifier in 2019-20 and she is Katelyn Walzer (on left). Seen here with head coach Olivia DeCesar, Walzer qualified in limit flat. From Sewickley, Pennsylvania, Walzer has two more chances to qualify for Regionals as she was only a freshman when this photo was taken.
Photo
Penn State University at Erie, known better in their neighborhood as the Behrend Campus, also had one lone Regional Qualifier in 2019-20. She is Shelby Lyons, seen here holding a manila envelope that gives away her affiliation with Penn State. Coincidentally from Erie, Pennsylvania, Lyons qualified for 2020 Regionals in both limit divisions. Lyons was only a freshman when this photo was taken so she too is only halfway through her four years of IHSA competition.
