The College of Charleston scored 29 points to place fifth overall in the hunter seat team competition at 2022 IHSA Nationals in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania last May. And McLean Holmes of the Cougars scored the first 11 of those 29 points. A freshman from Spartanburg, South Carolina, Holmes (on right, with head coach Natasha McCarthy) was sixth in team limit over fences which was the first team class held at the four-day event. Then a few hours later Holmes was third in team limit flat. For those who are not aware the scoring system at IHSA Nationals events differs from the regular season. At all IHSA shows except Nationals a first equals seven points, second five points, third four points down to a point for sixth. At Nationals a first is ten points, second is eight, third is seven down to a half a point for tenth. This explains how four plus seven equals eleven for Holmes while at any other show Holmes would have earned five points for the day.

Clemson University head coach Jamie Rowland (on left) and Alexis Clark of the Tigers (on right) wait for horse draw near what is known as the Cameron Street Entrance to the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex during day one of 2022 IHSA Nationals on May 5th. From Seneca, South Carolina, Clark was one of eighteen Region 3 riders to qualify for Regionals in individual novice equitation. Clark's second in the division at Zone 5 Zones on April 2nd meant she was the only one of the eighteen to advance to Nationals in the division. Clark closed out her senior year with a seventh in indvidual novice at Nationals.
The University of South Carolina (Columbia - the main campus) produced Region 5's Cacchione Rider for 2022 Nationals. From Southampton, New Jersey she is Camryn Lubner (on right, with head coach Angela MacFawn) and she closed out her sophomore year by placing ninth at Nationals in the Cacchione Cup on May 7th. Lubner was especially strong in the flat phase of the Cacchione, earning a combined judge's score of '91' which was the third best flat score out of 24 entries.
In 2022 the University of South Carolina at Aiken sent riders through to IHSA Nationals for the first time. One of them, Anne Russo (on right, with head coach Kerry Zemlicka), was second at Zone 5 Zones in both individual intermediate on the flat and limit over fences to earn two Nationals rides. From Cranford, New Jersey, Russo closed out her junior year with one top ten ribbon in Harrisburg. Russo was tenth in individual limit over fences on May 5th. USC-Aiken will start the 2022-23 season close to campus, as the Pacers co-host the season opener on October 1st with South Carolina (Columbia) and Wofford at Highfields Event Center which is also located in Aiken, South Carolina.
