Alumni who competed in Region 5 during the 2017-18 season earned each of the top two placings during a rain-soaked Zone 4 Zones at Sedgefield Showgrounds in Greensboro on April 7th. 2008 North Carolina State University graduate Kylie Roberts (pictured) was second in alumni flat that day and roughly a month later Roberts was again the reserve champion in the division. This time Roberts showed indoors at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The event was 2018 IHSA Nationals and Roberts is seen here after earning the reserve national champion ribbon on May 5th.

Though she is now head coach of the Hollins University team in Region 2, Sherri West (on left) was the head coach at Virginia Tech for nearly a decade through last May, when she guided the Hokies to their first-ever IHSA Nationals appearance with a full hunter seat team. However in this photo taken in the stalls area at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania last May 4th West and "Elvis" are seen with Jillian Kasmierczak (on right). Kasmierczak was an individual qualifier at 2018 Nationals, finishing her junior year with fourth place in individual walk-trot later that day.
West saw two of her Virginia Tech riders Not canter in consecutive classes and both made the top five. At 2018 Nationals the team walk-trot class followed the individual walk-trot class, which meant that once Kasmierczak was out of the ring that teammate Taylor Ziemer (on left) was in. From Front Royal, Virginia, Ziemer was third in team walk-trot to earn four of the Hokie's ten team points over three days. Virginia Tech made it to Zones with a full team in both 2015 and 2016 but it was not until 2018 that the Hokies made the top two in a Zone 4 Zones team competition that they advanced a full hunter seat team to IHSA Nationals.
Seven Region 5 schools were represented at 2018 Zones last April 7th and one of them is Wake Forest University. Victoria Latham of the Demon Deacons (on left, with head coach Michelle Hargreaves) was second in individual novice flat at Zones and therefore continued on to Nationals in the division. Latham is seen here at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex prior to competing in and placing ninth in the same division in Harrisburg on May 3rd.
She is seen here underneath a tent on a sunny day at Sedgefield Showgrounds in Greensboro, North Carolina way back on October 17, 2015. On that day Kristen Kelley of Averett University (pictured) was third in both of her novice classes. At 2018 Zone 4 Zones again at Sedgefield but under rainey circumstances Kelley closed out her four years at Averett with another third, this time in individual open over fences.
Here is another photo from back on October 17 of 2015. This one features the IHSA debut of Abby Hastings of High Point University (on left, with head coach Cathy Schlaeppi). During her first show Hastings was second in intermediate fences and fourth in intermediate flat. At 2018 Zone 4 Zones Hastings was fourth in individual open on the flat to close out her junior year.
Technically Logan Farley of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro finished her senior year by placing tenth in individual open over fences at Zones last April 7th. However less than two months later Farley competed in an IHSA-related event and left with one of the top prizes. Farley (on right) is seen here with her Mother at the Alumni Tournament of Champions at Black River Farm in Ringoes, New Jersey on June 3rd. At the tournament there are several "Futures Classes" specifically for those who graduated during the school year which had just ended. One of the divisions is the "Futures Alumni Cup" which is a multi-phased event like the Cacchione Cup. After both the flat and fences phases were completed Farley was the 2018 Futures champion. To make matters even better the regular Alumni Cup winner (for those who showed alumni previously) was former Virginia Tech rider Katie Gehrt (not pictured), who most recently had shown alumni in Region 5.
