Alexis Kupic of Seton Hill University (on right) made it through to IHSA Nationals in her first season of IHSA competition. The freshman from Plympton, Massachusetts was second in individual novice over fences at Zone 2 Zones on April 8th to reach Nationals in the same division. On the left is her Mother Betsy, who coached Curry College in Zone 1, Region 4 earlier this decade. Seton Hill rallied to win their first Region Title of any kind during the 2016-17 season with Alexis Kupic and her sister Briana (not pictured) playing a big part.

From Burgettstown, Pennsylvania, Katelyn Greenawald of Slippery Rock University is seen here in the holding area or small ring inside AllTech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington last May. Greenawald competed at three IHSA Nationals during four years in school, placing sixth in individual advanced western horsemanship in 2014, ninth in the individual AQHA High Point Rider division in 2016 and eighth in that same division less than an hour after this photo was taken. Though she did not ride at Nationals in 2015 that was the season Greenawald helped lead the Rock to their only Western Region Title in program history.
Seen here relaxing before riding at the September 17, 2016 Pre-Season Tournament of Champions invitational is Julia Carter of West Virginia University. From Fenwick Island, Delaware, Carter would place third in her walk-trot class that day. Carter would be one of only two Mountaineers to qualify for Zone 2 Zones hosted by Skidmore College on April 8th, where she would complete her senior year with a sixth in individual walk-trot.
We meant to take a photo of Emma Gorham of the University of Pittsburgh with Panthers head coach Jim Boyce at 2016 Nationals but forgot! It was nice of Gorham to finish on top of the field in the Region 5 2016-17 hunter seat open rider standings so that both rider and coach could return to Nationals for us to take that forgotten photo! From Cheshire, Connecticut, Gorham (who trains at home with Sacred Heart University head coach Tiffany Hajdasz) finished four points ahead of Seton Hill's Alison Mello for the right to compete at Nationals.
From Emlenton, Pennsylvania, Danielle Hovis (pictured) was the Captain of the Clarion University hunter seat team in 2016-17. However Hovis also rode western for Clarion and qualified for Regionals in the intermediate western horsemanship division. The 2016-17 Clarion western team become the first in program history to win a Region Title, finishing 15 points ahead of a West Virginia University team that had won the region title a year earlier. Over the past three seasons three different Region 5 schools have won the Western Region Title (Slippery Rock, West Virginia and Clarion). Will a fourth school rise up in 2017-18 or will one of the recent winners return to the top?
