IHSA ZONE 5 - REGION 2

Photo
Seen here with head coach Ashley Morrison, Emma Pennell of the University of Alabama (on right) was the first of three members of the Crimson Tide to compete at 2016 IHSA Nationals in Lexington, Kentucky on May 5th. From Austin, Texas, Pennell closed out her freshman year with a seventh in individual novice over fences. This wound up the top hunter seat ribbon awarded to a Region 2 rider at 2016 Nationals.

In 2003 Auburn University became the first school to leave the IHSA to go 'varsity only.' In 2015-16 Auburn fielded an IHSA team for the first time in 13 seasons, culminating with Grace Freeman advancing to Nationals in individual novice western horsemanship. Seen here with western coach Lisa Dorsey, Freeman (on left) rode in the final class at '16 IHSA Nationals, receiving seventh place in novice western at roughly 4:10PM on May 8th. This was the first time an Auburn rider received a ribbon at an IHSA National show since Rachel Smith was sixth in team advanced western on 5/3/03. Ironically the novice division Freeman competed in was created the season following Smith's green ribbon effort.

Mallory Hammer (on left) was the only Berry College hunter seat rider to qualify for 2016 IHSA Nationals. Vikings head coach Margaret Knight (on right) saw Hammer finish out four IHSA seasons with a ninth place ribbon in individual open on the flat at Nationals on May 5th. From Peach Tree City, Georgia, Hammer rode for a Berry team that won their tenth consecutive hunter seat region title while the western team was the Region Champion for the 13th year in a row.

This writer would be remiss if he did not mention that one of his former trainers is on the right-hand side of this photo. She is Jenn Buck, who competed for the University of Delaware in the mid-1990's. While I took lessons from Buck in 2004 Teresa Watterson (center) takes lessons from Buck this decade. Watterson completed her sophomore year at the University of North Georgia by placing seventh at 2016 IHSA Nationals in individual walk-trot-canter on May 5th. And I would be remiss not to mention that North Georgia head coach Amanda Garner (on left) has taught Watterson a thing or two over the past two seasons.

I would really be remiss if I did not include at least one member of the Berry College western team on this page. After all they started Nationals as the defending western national champs and finished the show tied for the honor, giving them three National Championships since 2011. Sarah Cooper of the Vikings (pictured) was second in team novice western horsemanship on May 6th, giving Berry their only team points through the first three team classes. However because 2016 Nationals was so close Berry scored 14 more points over the final three classes on May 8th to earn a tie with St. Andrews University for the National Title.
