IHSA ZONE 2 - REGION 5

Photo
Seen here with "Wizz" are Slippery Rock University's Aubrey Braham (on left) and western head coach Tammy Braham. Aubrey had just ridden Wizz in the National Reining Horse Association - sponsored individual reining division at 2018 IHSA Nationals on May 5th. It was the first Nationals appearance for Aubrey, who rode for Delaware State's NCEA team previously. Head coach Tammy (who is Aubrey's Mother) guided The Rock to their second Western Region Title in four seasons. Aubrey was the only Slippery Rock western rider to reach IHSA Nationals, where she also represented Region 5 in the individual High Point Open Rider competition. With the help of Wizz Aubrey Braham placed tenth in individual open reining.

As luck would have it, Region 5 had only one western and one hunter seat rider entered at 2018 Nationals. And both go to school at Slippery Rock. The Rock had three riders entered at 2018 Zone 2 Zones in Leonia, New Jersey on April 8th, and two of them showed in the same class. While Erin Mallen (on left) ended her sophomore year with an eighth in individual walk-trot-canter her Slippery Rock teammate Jessica Dietrich (on right) won the blue ribbon in the division, becoming the only Region 5 hunter seat rider to make the top two that day and advance through to IHSA Nationals in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. From Eastlake, Ohio, Dietrich was out of the ribbons on May 3rd but has one more season with the Rock to have another shot at a bigger prize.

Peter Kupic (on left) can claim he has two daughters who ride for the Seton Hill equestrian team and a wife who used to coach the Curry College IHSA team. While wife Betsy (who still coaches in the IEA) is not in this photo Peter's daughter Lexi is. Alexis "Lexi" Kupic holds up her yellow ribbon earned in the team intermediate over fences division at Zone 2 Zones at Bergen Equestrian Center in Leonia, New Jersey on April 8th. This would be one of only two times a Seton Hill University rider would place as high as third in the team competition (Editor's note: Seton Hill did have to face the eventual National Champion Skidmore College that day). Lexi Kupic and her sister Briana have been with the Griffins each of the past two seasons which are coincidentally the only two years in program history that Seton Hill has captured a hunter seat Region Championship.

Zone 2 Zones were held in the New York Metropolitan area for the first time since 2013. At that time Zone 2, Region 5 was Zone 6, Region 5. Therefore this was the first time that teams in Western Pennsylvania and West Virginia had been this far east for a Zones show since way back in 2005. One individual who did not qualify for Zones was Edinboro University captain Lauren Michalchik (on right), who made the drive east to watch teammate Sarah West (on left) compete in the first class of the day. From Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, West was one of four riders (out of ten) who were called back to test but ultimately she was third in individual open over fences to conclude her junior year.
Photo
Bethany College head coach Beth Johnson (on right) is no stranger to the state of New Jersey. Johnson went to Centenary College in Hackettstown and traveled to the Alumni Tournament of Champions in Ringoes in both 2017 and 2018 (each time to watch Bethany graduate Ali Malcanas compete). On April 8th Johnson was in Leonia (right near the George Washington Bridge into Manhattan) to coach Logan Mayhew (on left). Ten riders took part in the individual intermediate over fences; Two from each region. Though Mayhew was one of two riders asked to test it turned out judge Rita Timpanaro had already selected her first-place rider. From Morgantown, West Virginia Mayhew was third in the division. Mayhew, West of Edinboro and Dietrich of Slippery Rock were the only Region 5 riders to place third or higher in an individual undergraduate class. Mayhew also placed sixth in individual open on the flat later in the day.
Photo
Allegheny College was one of eight Region 5 schools with a rider entered in one of the individual classes at Zones. From Granville, Ohio, Alex Doran of Allegheny (pictured) closed out her senior year with seventh place in the individual intermediate on the flat at Zones on April 8th. Allegheny is scheduled to co-host with the Region 5 alumni and at least one other team over the November 10th/11th weekend. More details on the hosting information when we receive it.
Photo
Though she is the hunter seat coach for California University of Pennsylvania, Sue Stepusin (on left) also coached a rider from Indiana University of Pennsylvania at Zones on April 8th. Seen here with Stepusin is one of her Cal U riders, Meghan Trunzo. Coincidentally from the town of California, Pennsylvania, Trunzo placed tenth in individual novice over fences at Zone 2 Zones to conclude her junior year.
Photo
Seton Hill head coach Becki Bloom (on left) has been involved in two very close team races with West Virginia University the past two seasons. And in both cases Seton Hill has prevailed (by single digits in 2016-17). Bloom has seen her teams (previously Washington and Jefferson and the University of Pittsburgh) move in name only from Zone 3, Region 3 to Zone 6, Region 5 to Zone 2, Region 5 since the start of the previous decade. Macey Marks of the Griffins (on right) played a large part in Seton Hill's climb in the standings over her four years on the team. From Jeanette, Pennsylvania, Marks was fourth in both team novice over fences and team novice flat at Zones on April 8th.
