IHSA ZONE 6 - REGION 1

Photo
Meri Martin (center) is the program director of the University of Findlay riding program. She is also the Oiler's Reining Coach. Martin's daughter Grace is on the left while on the right is Ashton Knerr. A junior (at the time) from Plain City, Ohio, Knerr earned ribbons in two classes involving some reining at 2022 IHSA Nationals in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania last May. Knerr was eighth in individual open reining not long after this photo was taken on May 7th and was Reserve Champion in the individual AQHA High Point Rider Competition behind Ohio State's Nigel Lancaster on May 8th in one of the closest competitions for that honor ever at an IHSA Nationals event.

In a separate article on 2022 IHSA Nationals we made note of all the former University of Findlay riders who are now head coaches or assistant coaches around the IHSA. One of them is 2011 Findlay graduate Katie Morehead (on left), who as a freshman won the individual AQHA High Point Rider Competition on a very cold night in Burbank, California. The daughter of her former head coach Cindy Morehead, Katie is seen here with Ashton Snow of Bowling Green State University. A junior (at the time) from Definance, Ohio, Snow competed in the first-ever Individual Ranch Riding class held at an IHSA Nationals event. Snow was fifth in the division on May 6th, making BGSU head coach Morehead proud.

The University of Findlay had not only the high point Western Team in Region 1 for the 2021-22 season they also had the high point Hunter Seat Team. The only rider from the English team to compete at 2022 Nationals is Open Rider Madison Olvert (pictured). From North Grafton, Massachusetts, Olvert won the Zone 6 Zones Cacchione Cup Competition to become one of only two freshman (out of 24 riders entered) to compete at Nationals in Harrisburg for the Cacchione Cup.

Earlier we mentioned Katie Morehead as a former Findlay rider who coached or was an assistant coach at 2022 IHSA Nationals. Well here are two more of them! And in this case they both coach at their alma matter!! Spencer Zimmerman (on left) has been the head coach since the fall of 2017 while Charity Thacker (on right) is the assistant western coach since at least the 2021-22 season. In the middle is Maria Kochel of the Oilers, who we didn't ask if she has coaching aspirations! From Trappe, Pennsylvania, Kochel is seen here before placing fifth in individual open western horsemanship in her final IHSA undergraduate ride at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex on May 6th.

Starting in the fall of 2022 Albion College will be a member of Zone 6, Region 1 after having been in Zone 6, Region 4 since that region was created in mid-2007. However before you dream of a Western match-up between Findlay and Albion it should be known that the Brits will remain in Region 4 for their Western Competitions, so any Oilers-Brits western showdowns will remain post-season only. Albion head coach Adam D'Agostino (on left, yet another Findlay graduate) is seen here at 2022 Nationals last May 5th with Celia Hilden of the Brits. From South Lyon, Michigan, Hilden was a senior in 2021-22 so she rode only in Region 4 during her time as an undergraduate. At Zone 6 Zones hosted by Albion last April 9th Hilden won the individual intermediate over fences to advance through to Harrisburg.

Starting with 2001 IHSA Nationals in Conyers, Georgia (the year Findlay had both the Western and English high point teams) at least one member of Findlay had won an individual western class at every Nationals held prior to 2022 Nationals. But during 2022 Nationals no Oiler won a blue ribbon headed into the final class of the four-day event in Harrisburg. But at the eleventh hour the winning streak continued! A sophomore at the time, Ryann Piperno (on right) posed with her Mother prior to competing in the individual level I horsemanship division. Piperno won the class to extend the streak to 20 consecutive Nationals events. One of several riders from Eastern Pennsylvania but enrolled at a school further away to do well at 2022 Nationals, Piperno won a division that Findlay has dominated. When you add in all the other Findlay riders who won the division when it was called Novice Western Horsemanship then Philadelphia resident Piperno is the Eighth University of Findlay rider to win the class at Nationals since it debuted in 2004. The rest of the IHSA has won the Novice/Level I Nine Times in that span!
