IHSA ZONE 4 - REGION 3

Photo
In 2019-20 St. Andrews University had the top Region 3 hunter seat team for the ninth time in ten years and the top western team for the 15th season in a row. On the hunter seat side both Carly Parent (on left) and Sydney Eller (on right) had earned two rides each at Regionals prior to the IHSA wisely calling off all shows starting March 13th due to the coronavirus pandemic. Parent, from Garner, North Carolina would have been showing in both limit classes while Eller, from Boone, North Carolina, was not only qualified in both open divisions she even had a ride coming to her at Zones. As the Region 3 rider with the most combined open flat and fences points Eller would have been one of five to compete in the Cacchione classes which would have been held at St. Andrews on April 4th.

Eleven points behind Eller in second place in the Region 3 hunter seat open rider standings is Sara Evans of North Carolina State University (on right). Evans is seen here with NC State head coach Kara Wilcox after finishing second in her open flat class at the February 9th East Carolina University show. The Wolfpack finished second overall to St. Andrews, securing that honor by erasing a seven point deficit in the standings to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill at the final regular-season show on February 15th which the Wolfpack hosted. The Tar Heels finished behind NC State by a slim 250-249 margin.
Photo
Davidson College has sporadically fielded an IHSA team through the years, at one point disappearing for over a decade. A few times the Wildcats would re-appear for a show or two and then vanish until late in the following season. However in 2019-20 Davidson riders showed at the majority of the hunter seat competitions. Head coach Christy Conway-Chester (on left) poses with Wildcats open rider Addison Woods after her over fences trip at the February 9th East Carolina show. A junior from Durham, North Carolina, Woods finished fourth in the Region 3 hunter seat open rider standings. While no Davidson rider qualified for Regionals in 2019-20 (which is a blessing in disguise due to the coronavirus) several could point up with regular appearances at 2020-21 shows.
Photo
Likewise Campbell University did not qualify any riders for Regionals. However if freshman Jane Whited can replicate her IHSA debut she would be a good bet to go to regionals at some point. From Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina, Whited holds a red ribbon earned in her first IHSA ride. Campbell head coach Barrett Diehl (on left) poses with Whited after her second in intermediate fences at that same February 9th East Carolina University show. Whited's second-ever IHSA ride resulted in another second, in intermediate flat later that day.
Photo
Duke University had four riders who qualified for Regionals, including Anna Schwarzkopf (pictured). A junior from Atlana, Georgia, Schwartzkopf qualified for Regionals in intermediate flat during the fall semester. Schwartzkopf also finished inside the top ten of the Region 3 hunter seat open rider standings.
Photo
If you look closely at this picture of Katherine Baker of Elon University you can spot the tractor that watered the arena every so often during the February 9th ECU show. A junior from San Francisco, California, Baker was the only Elon rider to qualify for Regionals during the fall. Baker pointed out of limit flat and was later joined by teammate Sarah Parks (not pictured) who pointed out of introductory equitation at one of the final two shows. Elon finished fifth overall in the Region 3 hunter seat team standings.
Photo
When University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill head coach Courtney Clayton cannot be at a show the odds are very good that Nan Garcia (on right) will be there in her place. Garcia is seen here with Tia Sparks of the Tar Heels, who will be captain of the team next season. A sophomore from Hickory, North Carolina, Sparks was one of ten Tar Heels to qualify for 2020 Regionals, the most of any Region 3 school this season (two of the ten would have ridden twice at Regionals had the show taken place). Sparks qualified in limit fences. The Tar Heels were second to St. Andrews when this photo was taken at the February 9th ECU show, with the Knights prevailing 41-37.

She is from Charlotte and she goes to school in Charlotte! She is Dakota Arneson of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, and she is seen here not long after she won the open fences class that kicked off the February 9th ECU show. The 49er sophomore qualified for Regionals in intermediate flat during the fall semester. UNC-Charlotte is one of five schools in the University of North Carolina system to field an IHSA team in 2019-20. UNC-Chapel Hill and UNC-Wilmington are also in Region 3 while Zone 4, Region 5 contains UNC-Ashville and UNC-Greensboro.
Photo
Like Sparks of UNC-Chapel Hill, Grace Kaiser of the North Carolina State also hails from Hickory (and they rode in the same intermediate flat class on February 9th). A sophomore this season, Kaiser (pictured) was one of eight Wolfpack hunter seat riders qualfied for regionals (she pointed out of limit flat during the fall). Technically this placed the Wolfpack second to UNC-Chapel Hill in this statistic. However St. Andrews would have also had eight rides at hunter seat regionals though only six of their actual riders qualified.
Photo
From Charleston, South Carolina, Sarah Beth Felker of St. Andrews University (on left) is seen here at 2019 IHSA Nationals with head coach Carla Wennberg while waiting for horse draw for the individual open western horsemanship division. Felker closed out her freshman year a short time later by placing seventh in the division in Syracuse, New York on May 3rd of last season. In 2019-20 the Knights won another Region 3 western title (23 points ahead of Liberty University) while open rider Gina Ulveie (not pictured) led the Region 3 western open rider standings by 29 points. Ulveie would have shown in the individual AQHA High Point Open Rider classes at Nationals in Syracuse had the season been able to continue.
