Goucher College in Region 1 hosted 2023 Zone 4 Zones on April 1st. for the first three hours of the show rain and wind were part of the story, but by the time Margaret Saunders of Liberty University (on right, with her Mother) competed in individual open on the flat the sun was shining and temps were soaring into the '70's. A junior from Troy, Virginia, Saunders won the class of ten outright, advancing through to 2023 IHSA Nationals in Lexington, Kentucky on May 4th.

Lauren Daniel of the College of William & Mary (pictured) qualified for Regionals in both intermediate divisions. And at Regionals the junior from Roanoke, Virginia advanced through to Zones in both divisions. Then at Zones Daniel was sixth in individual intermediate over fences early in the day. However judge Scott Hoffstetter liked her individual intermediate flat ride enough that Daniel was second in that appearance. This meant a trip to IHSA Nationals is in the cards for Daniel on May 4th.
Sweet Briar College captured their fifth consecutive Region 4 Region Title in 2022-23. Head coach Lizzy Fisch (on right) is seen here with Emmy Longest of the Vixens during their home show on February 18th. A junior from Hanover, Virginia, Longest was one of two Sweet Briar riders to place as high as second in a team class during Zones on April 1st, doing so in team open on the flat.
Former Randolph College assistant coach Lauryn Tannenhaus (on left) is now involved with the Randolph Macon College program. She is seen here with head coach John West (on right) and junior open rider Alyssa Roberts. From Virginia Beach, Virginia, Roberts won a very close race for Region 4 high point rider, finishing one point ahead of Longest 59-58 for the right to compete in the Cacchione Cup class at Zones.
Six University of Mary Washington riders qualified for Regionals in 2022-23 including Caitlin Shirvinski (pictured). A senior from Washington, DC, Shirvinski went to Regionals in intermediate fences. The Eagles finished fourth overall in Region 4, moving up one place from a year ago.
From Crisfield, Maryland, Madison Clayton of Christopher Newport University poses between her parents at the February 18th Sweet Briar show. Clayton was the only member of the Captains to reach Zones, finishing her sophomore year by placing fourth out of ten in individual limit on the flat in Towson, Maryland on April 1st.
Annie Szczepanik of the University of Richmond (pictured) told us that her last name is pronounced "Shep-panic" for the record. The Spider sophomore from Largo, Florida qualified for Regionals in limit fences.
Seven Region 4 riders qualified for Regionals in the novice division including Briley Boan of Liberty University (on left). The senior from Statesville, North Carolina is seen here with Flames assistant coach Kimi Counts after placing second in limit flat on February 18th.
2020 Sweet Briar graduate Sarah Miller (on right) is now the assistant coach of the Vixen's IHSA team. On the left is Alexandra Kemp - Thompson Fredal, who rode for Seton Hill University in Zone 2, Region 5 and graduated in 2013. Fredal is also involved in some capacity. And in the middle is Katelyn Jones of Sweet Briar. A junior from Houston, Texas, Jones won her limit fences class when this photo was taken on February 18th. After having to win a tiebreaker to settle 2021-22 Region 4 high point team honors the Vixens won the region by 22 points over Randolph Macon in 2022-23. Sweet Briar won their February 18th home show/regular season finale 34-31 over both Mary Washington and Randolph Macon, earning blue ribbons in six of the 15 classes.
