From Warrenton, Virginia, Aberle Rodgers of the University of South Carolina (on right, with head coach Angela MacFawn) was one of a small number of freshmen to compete at 2016 IHSA Nationals. Rodgers won the individual novice flat class at Zone 5 Zones on April 2nd to advance to Nationals. South Carolina sits in second place in the Region 3 hunter seat team standings through five fall shows, this despite finishing as high as second only twice during that time.

Georgia Southern University had multiple riders entered at 2016 IHSA Nationals. Rachel Bird (not pictured) was fourth in individual walk-trot-canter on May 5th while Caitlin McDargh (on right) was Reserve National Champion in individual walk-trot on May 6th. From Evans, Georgia, McDargh earned the best ribbon of any Region 3 rider in an individual class held during 2016 Nationals. During the fall of '16 the Eagles best effort was likely on October 16th, with they tied for second with South Carolina and College of Charleston for second place each with 35 points (Clemson was high point with 39). Head Coach Eleanor Ellis (on left) has Georgia Southern in fourth place in the Region 3 hunter seat team standings (only nine points behind second place South Carolina) as 2017 begins.
Not too many people in IHSA history can claim to have competed in both phases of the individual AQHA High Point Open Rider division at an IHSA Nationals show and then compete in the individual advanced western horsemanship division. This is what Allyssa Priester of Clemson University did last May. From Ravenell, South Carolina, Priester had started the season in advanced western, then pointed out early, and then proceeded to overtake those who started the year in the open western divisions. Though she did not place in the individual AQHA Priester (pictured) was tenth in advanced western at Nationals on May 8th. Over the course of Priester's time on the Tiger's western team Clemson won four consecutive region titles. Thus the class of '16 is the only Clemson graduating class in program history (so far) to win a region title every year.
However on the hunter seat side the College of Charleston once ran off eleven consecutive region titles! Right now the Cougar's streak is also at four straight Region 3 titles, and COC nearly managed consecutive Cacchione Cup Champions at IHSA Nationals. In 2015 Eliza Hay was the Cacchione Cup winner while in 2016 Victoria "Tori" Bauer (on right) finished second to Chase Boggio of Tufts for the honor. During the fall of 2016 Cougars head coach Bob Story (on left) has seen his team tie for high point at the season opener, win outright at the first University of South Carolina show, tie for second at the second South Carolina show, finish second by themselves at the October 23rd Clemson show and win in historic fashion at their home show on November 19th. Charleston not only earned their third perfect 49 score in program history at that final fall show they outscored second place South Carolina by 32 points! This large victory put the Cougars a very healthy 56 points ahead overall with the Region 3 season better than half over.
