Around the IHSA this season four schools captured hunter seat Region Titles for the first time in program history. One of the four is Georgia Southern University, coached by Eleanor Ellis (on left). The Eagles won a close, four-way race in which Clemson University was closest. Georgia Southern prevailed by five points over the Tigers 253-248. For the third year in a row Kayla Jacobs of the Eagles (on right) was the leading hunter seat open rider within Region 3. A junior from Savannah, Georgia, Jacobs is seen here with Ellis at 2018 IHSA Nationals in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania after having placed second in individual open on the flat.

The University of South Carolina (Columbia) finished third in the region with 246 points. Head coach Angela MacFawn (on left) poses with Alexa Friedman of the Fighting Gamecocks after her third in intermediate fences put the team on the board at the Winter Tournament of Champions invitational in Hardeeville, South Carolina on January 25th. A senior from Northport, New York (whose sister Julia rides for the Long Island University team), Friedman was one of two South Carolina riders to place as high as third at the tournament during which the Fighting Gamecocks scored 15 points.
A trip down Memory Lane! Molly Coyle of the College of Charleston is seen here as a freshman at 2017 IHSA Nationals in Lexington, Kentucky with then-head coach Bob Story, shortly before placing seventh in team novice over fences. Coyle rode with Story for her first two seasons and with current head coach Natasha McCarthy for the last two. Coyle was recently the subject of a "Senior Spotlight" on the College of Charleston athletics web site. From Davidsonville, Maryland, Coyle was high point rider at the October 20th Lander/Clemson show with a pair of firsts in her intermediate classes. Charleston and the University of South Carolina (Columbia) tied for the most riders qualified for Regionals with seven each (including Coyle in intermediate flat). However the Cougars earned one more ride at Regionals, holding a 9-8 advantage as Kate Coffey (not pictured, in both open divisions) and Beverly Davis (also not pictured, in both intermediate divisions) each qualified twice.
