Georgetown University has a new head coach in 2022-23 and this writer is not sure if she is Corie Bacher (her name on the IHSAinc web site) or Lorie Bacher (which is what I thought I heard her say when I met her at the October 22nd Goucher show). In any event coach Bacher is on the right with Julia Stone of the Hoyas on the bleechers at Goucher. Stone, a senior from Santa Barbara, California, is sixth in the Region 1 open rider standings through the fall.

Not only does this writer have a hearing problem (Corie? Lorie?) but he can't read either!! For several seasons I have referred to American University head coach Star Dalley (on left) as Star Dailey! Her last name has been Dalley every day in that time, honest (I purchased a new bottle of cleaner for my glasses so who knows what else I will discover)! Dalley is seen here with Elizabeth Margeotes of the Eagles (pronounced "Margie Otis"), a senior from Robbinsville, New Jersey who has two rides at Regionals coming up on March 11th. Margeotes pointed out of limit flat on October 15th and limit fences on November 5th, both times doing so at home shows taking place at the Other Left Farm at Springhill Stables. Coach Dalley has the Eagles in fourth place through six fall shows.
Another rider from New Jersey riding in Region 1 is Ava Kavulich of the University of Maryland (pictured). A sophomore from Pennington, New Jersey, Kavulich finished the fall in third place within the Region 1 open rider standings. Meanwhile the Terps are in third place overall headed into the seventh of eight Region 1 regular season shows which they will host at Meadowbrook Stables in Chevy Chase on February 19th.
Handy Dandy! From Goochland County, Virginia, Mea Handy of George Mason University (on left) had an auspicious IHSA debut when the Patriots hosted the season opener at Timely Manor on October 8th. A junior who is new to the team in 2022-23, Handy won both her intermediate flat and limit fences classes that day while also earning high point rider honors. A week later Dandy was again a double blue winner at the American show. George Mason head coach Sue Buscher (on right) has reaped the benefits, as the Patriots are in second place nine points ahead of the Terps prior to February 19th.
Megan Jones of the University of Maryland - Baltimore County has been on our Region 1 page before but the senior from Annapolis, Maryland keeps doing something of merrit and is once again featured. Seen here holding "Theodore" on October 22nd Jones has qualified for Regionals in open fences. Jones is fifth in the Region 1 open rider standings through six shows as well.
There were 15 classes held at the October 22nd Goucher College show and Samantha Kasowski of George Washington University won the 15th and final class of the day. From Atlanta, Georgia, Kasowski won the lone section of introductory equitation that day. By the end of the fall Kasowski was the only Region 1 rider qualified in this division. George Washington sits in fifth place overall prior to the Maryland show on February 19th.
Even if the sun is out every day is a Grey day for Hood College. From Frederick, Maryland, Alexa Grey of the Blazers is seen here with head coach Elizabeth Hummel after placing second in pre-novice at the February 26, 2022 George Washington/George Mason show. During the fall of 2022 Grey (on right) qualified for Regionals in novice equitation.
The only Towson University rider to win a class on October 22nd is Madeline McCutcheon (on left). Seen here with her Mother that day the sophomore from Bel Air, Maryland was a blue ribbon winner in limit fences. The Tigers are one of eight Region 1 teams to break the 100 point barrier over the first six shows, having picked up 115.
St. Mary's College of Maryland is another school with a new head coach in 2022-23 and she is Aurora Baile (on left). Baile is seen here with Kara Peterson, a St. Mary's senior from Williamsburg, Virginia who was third in limit flat when this photo was taken on October 22nd.
Goucher College not only leads Region 1 by 48 points the Gophers also have the most Regional Qualifiers with six including Lexi Mason. A senior from Lothian, Maryland, novice equitation qualifier Mason is seen here with "Allure" (on left) and Goucher assistant coach Brittany Martin (on right) on October 22nd. This was the day Goucher dedicated the expansion of their covered arena, which grew 40 feet longer. The Goucher/UMBC show on March 4th will be the eighth and final Region 1 regular season show of 2022-23 and will likely clinch an eleventh straight Region Title for the Gophers if they don't mathematically clinch on February 19th.
