Had Zone 4 Zones taken place on April 4th Eliza Vanderwoude (on left) would have represented Region 4 in the Cacchione Cup classes. The Randolph-Macon College senior from Warrenton, Virginia finished 14 points ahead of William and Mary's Logan Bishop to lead the Region 4 combined open flat and fences points. Eliza's younger sister Lexi (on right) was on hand at the February 15th University of Mary Washington show when Eliza clinched her place at Zones. Lexi is an eighth grader in 2019-20 but is hoping to one day ride in the IHSA (perhaps even at her sister's alma matter).

From Penhook, Virginia, Liberty University sophomore Nadia Cooper is seen here between head coach Suzanne Flaig (on left) and assistant coach Kimberly Counts at the end of the February 15th Mary Washington show. Cooper was one of three riders with a first and a second that day, which put her in a ride-off for high point with two others. Cooper won her open flat, was second in open fences and a winner in the ride-off. Cooper holds the high point rider ribbon awarded at the final Region 4 regular season show of 2019-20. Region 4 was one of a small number nationwide to actually get in their Regional show ahead of the March 12th decision to wisely cancel all of the remaining IHSA shows scheduled this year due to the coronavirus.
If you think you saw this photo on our Region 4 Regional Qualifiers Page recently you are correct. However we at Campus Equestrian need to apologize to Emilie Bjerring of the College of William and Mary (pictured) for we incorrectly identified her as one of her teammates when this photo was on the regional qualifiers page. From Dragor, Denmark (outside of Copenhagen), Bjerring was already qualified for Regionals in limit flat heading into the final regular season show on February 15th. Bjerring needed to win her intermediate fences class on the 15th to qualify a second time. Bjerring in fact won the class made up of five riders to give the Tribe at least ten rides at Regionals on February 22nd.
So when we made that mistake on the regional qualifiers page the rider we talked about is Elizabeth Vanasse (on left, with William and Mary head coach Karen Greenwood). We mentioned that at least three of the William and Mary regional qualifiers were seniors, including Vanasse. From Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Vanasse pointed out of both intermediate divisions. Since we do not have the results from Regionals we are unsure if any of the Tribe seniors qualified through to the Zones show which would have been on April 4th.
The host school added a rider to their regional qualifier's list on February 15th. From Manassas, Virginia, Mary Margaret Burns of the University of Mary Washington (on left, with Eagles head coach Teresa Seay) was second in her novice equitation class to extend her senior year one more week to Regionals. As has been the custom since Region 4 was created mostly from part of Region 1 in mid-2013, Mary Washington has hosted the final region 4 regular season show and Regionals a week later.
Christopher Newport University qualified at least one rider to the February 22nd regional show and they did this at the final show of the regular season. Enily Goddin of the Captains is seen here with her Father after finishing third in limit flat on February 15th. This gave the junior from Mechanicsville, Virginia at least 36 points in the division and a spot in the same class at regionals.
Only one Virginia Commonwealth University rider qualified for Regionals to the best of our knowledge and she is Holly Longest (on left, with head coach Sarah Black). From Hanover, Virginia, Longest pointed out of intermediate fences at one of the fall shows.
If you read the region 4 team standings page recently you already know that Sweet Briar College has three sets of twins on their 2019-20 roster. One of them are the Narodowy sisters, Abbey (on left) and Ellyn (on right). From North Smithfield, Rhode Island, Abbey qualified for 2020 regionals in novice equitation and won her limit flat class on February 15th. Ellyn was third in limit fences that same day to help the Vixens pull out a 36-30 win over host Mary Washington while outscoring a Liberty team by seven points which had come into the day tied for first with Sweet Briar overall.
