Seen here between Tournament Producer Jim Arrigon and Horse Show Manager Gwen Arrigon is
Stonehill College open rider Quinn Traendly. The senior from Hope Valley, Rhode Island won the prestigious
Medal Division at the 2009 Holiday Tournament of Champions on December 5th, finishing ahead of 35 other riders
to accomplish this feat.
CENTENARY COLLEGE FIELDS TWO TEAMS, EARNS FIRST AND SECOND PLACE HONORS AT '09 HOLIDAY TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS
Long Valley, NJ - If you turn the clock back to the beginning of the
decade, schools only brought one team to Tournament of Champions events.
Somewhere along the way it was decided that a small number of schools
could bring a second team of riders to Tournament events. To tell one
team from another, schools were asked to use their school colors to
avoid confusion. For example Virginia Intermont College might field a
"Gold" team and a "Black" team, as these are their school colors.
Then it came to pass that Tournament organizer and Xavier of Ohio
Head Coach Jim Arrigon got the idea to allow schools to come up with
'funny names' instead of basing them strictly on school colors. Mount
Holyoke College has had the most fun with this opportunity over the
years, assigning their teams nicknames based on movie dialogue, internet
sensations (team Precious and team Kiki at the '09 Holiday event), real
people (team Bob for the IHSA founder in '05) and even viruses (team
N1H1 and team Swine this past September at the pre-season Tourney).
Centenary College last hosted the Holiday Tournament in 2007, naming
their teams 'Gravy' and 'Mashed Potatoes' at the time. Hosting again in
2009 the Cyclones honored the Twilight/New Moon phenominon, naming their
squads 'Team Edward' and 'Team Jacob' straight out of the latest film
Centenary, Mount Holyoke and Virginia Tech each fielded two teams
while 22 other schools fielded one at the 18th annual Holiday Tournament
of Champions in Long Valley, New Jersey on December 5th. The outcome
had Arrigon (who has produced every tournament event from day one) and
this writer scratching their heads as to if any program with two teams
ever earned both first and second at the same invitational. One season
Mount Holyoke had three teams in a pre-season event (held at the Mount
Holyoke Equestrian Center) and two of them might have been in the top
three. On December 5th it was Centenary College team Jacob dominating
from the first class onward, with team Edward eventually the (distant)
|From left to right are Lindsay Maxwell, Samantha Strouss, Head Coach
Megan Taylor and Kaylee Beauchamp of the University of the South. Beauchamp (prounounced
'Beacham') was one of two Tigers to win a class on December 5th. Her first in
intermediate fences was the only blue ribbon awarded to a rider not competing for
Centenary during the first five classes of the day.
Team Jacob scored 43 points out of a possible 56 (like at IHSA Zones
and Nationals, the lowest score is not dropped at a tournament event)
while Edward earned 25 for reserve including a first in open fences for
defending Cacchione Cup winner Lindsay Clark. Lindsay Mohr, a junior
who is ironically from the town of Long Valley, New Jersey where
today's show took place, started what would be a sweep of the fences
for Jacob with a win in the open fences section that started the
competition. Three classes later Sami Davis won intermediate fences
while Julie Connors, a junior from Hebron, Connecticut (also the
hometown of Windcrest Farm, which hosts IHSA shows in multiple Zone 1
regions this season) won section A of novice fences. Candice Schober
won novice flat and Emily Hawley, a senior from Fryeburg, Michigan who
is a member of Centenary's Dressage Team, won walk-trot-canter to make
it five blue ribbons in eight tries for Jacob.
Following Clark's first to make Centenary undefeated in open fences
between their two teams only Jessica Pabst brought home another blue
ribbon for Edward. The freshman from Oak Ridge, New Jersey won her
novice flat to give Centenary a sweep of both novice flat sections.
Debbie Smith had the only other Centenary ribbon above third, coming
in second late in the day for Edward in walk-trot-canter. Smith's red
ribbon assured Centenary of both the Champion and Reserve team ribbons.
We are not sure how it happened, but Mount Holyoke College had their
most understated team names in some time. One group was known as 'Team
Lyons' (the official mascot) while the other was known as 'Columbia
Blue' (the shade of light blue which is a school color). Regardless of
their nicknames both scored 22 points to join Lynchburg College with
the third highest total of the day.
|Historically Mount Holyoke College walk-trot riders have faired well at IHSA Nationals.
Considering this year's Holiday Tournament had a Nationals feel about it perhaps it is not a
surprise that Paulie Erni (on left) and Belinda Wenke (on right) made it a sweep for the two Mount Holyoke
teams in the walk-trot division. Both 'Team Lyons' and 'Columbia Blue' scored 22 points, with the Lyons
(Wenke's team) earning the yellow ribbon by way of a tie-breaker.
Team Lyons scored their points in bunches. Junior open rider
Lindsay Sceats was second to Lindsay Clark in open fences to start
the Lyons roaring, while freshman Sally Gibb (from Princeton, New
Jersey) and junior Belinda Wenke (from Woodbridge, Connecticut)
won novice fences and walk-trot, respectively. Columbia Blue were
lead by Paulie Erni. A freshman from Creskill, New York, Erni was
also awarded a blue ribbon in walk-trot while Clara Tate was
second to Connors in novice fences. Columbia Blue earned points
in six of the eight attempts while Team Lyons scored points in only
four. However the Tournament of Champions tie-breaker formula
put the Lyons in third above Columbia Blue, either by virtue of
one more blue ribbon or total points over fences. Team Lyons had
the edge in both situations and thus was presented with the Yellow
ribbon at the end of the day.
Last season Lynchburg College finished seventh overall in the
Zone 4, Region 2 team standings. Now in his second season as Head
Coach, Matt Arrigon has the Hornets in third place overall and
within two points of second place Bridgewater College. Lynchburg
was the only team from Zone 4, Region 2 to take part in the Holiday
Tournament, scoring 22 points while receiving top six placings on
six occasions. Krissy Guthrie, a freshman from Glenmoore,
Pennsylvania was second to Davis in intermediate fences while
another freshman, Caroline Thompson, was a red ribbon winner in
walk-trot-canter. From Fredericksburg, Virginia (where the
University of Mary Washington will host the Winter Tournament of
Champions event at Hazelwild Farm on January 30th), Thompson was
sick for several weeks leading up to the Holiday Tourney (Thompson
was still at the hotel resting when the show was at the halfway
point). Nevertheless Thompson received a red ribbon in the final
team class that was pinned during the day, moving Lynchburg into a
tie with Mount Holyoke's teams. Without a blue ribbon the Hornets
had to settle for the pink ribbons and some satisfaction that 20
schools were looking up at them on the scoreboard (can anyone out
there clarify if Lynchburg ever competed in a 'Holiday' Tournament
prior to this season? - Editor).
Only six schools scored in the twenties, with Virginia
Intermont College scoring exactly that number. Leading the way
for VI was open rider Ashley Miller. A junior from Raritan, New
Jersey (where the VI team had dinner at her home the night before),
Miller was a winner in open flat while also placing fifth in open
fences. Liz Mirson, a junior from Wellington, Florida was second in
intermediate flat. VI was at their best sans obsticles, as 18 of
their 20 points came in flat classes. Just as they have improved
within their own region as the season has progressed, VI's showing
in Long Valley translated into better tournament numbers than their
Pre-Season appearance (19 points and eleventh place on September
27th; 20 points and sixth place on December 5th).
|Despite having been sick in bed for two weeks Caroline Thompson (on right) finished
second in her walk-trot-canter class to elevate Lynchburg College into a tie with two Mount Holyoke teams
while also receiving the pink hat she is wearing! Coach Matt Arrigon (on left) saw his Hornets score 22
points and receive fifth-place ribbons due to the tie-breakers.
Zone 5, Region 1 has been a prognosticator's nightmare much of the
decade, as no hunter seat team has repeated as Region Champion since
the University of the South won three titles in a row 2003-05.
The school known simply as "Sewanee" to many is back on top through
four fall shows, leading MTSU by 12 and defending Region 1 champ
Murray State by 33. The University of the South made the most of
the Nationals-style environment, scoring 19 points and earning two
firsts and a second while doing it. Freshman Kaylee Beauchamp won
intermediate fences (along with Gibb, these were the only two riders
not from Centenary to win a jumping class) while sophomore Olivia
Schubert won intermeidate flat. From Alpharetta, Georgia, Schubert's
first allowed the Tigers to join Centenary and Mount Holyoke as
schools with a 'division sweep' on this day. Samantha Strouss, a
sophomore from Ipswich, Massachusetts was second to Miller in open
flat to close out the scoring for the seventh-place Tigers.
Two teams scored 18 points, with Virginia Tech's 'Team Enter
Sandman' receiving the eighth place ribbon. 'Enter Sandman' was
the champion team at the Pre-Season Tournament, and save for their
walk-trot-canter rider contained the exact same personel this time
around. Early on it looked like Enter Sandman could repeat (if Team
Jacob ever slumped) as Paige Messick was second to Beauchamp in
intermediate fences while Anna Norwood was second to Gibb in novice
fences (ironically Norwood was champion in the division and Gibb
reserve champ on September 27th). However the best Enter Sandman
could do after the jumps were removed was a third for
walk-trot-canter rider Tracey Maier (for those with a program from
the Holiday Tournament, it should be noted that Megan Ebling was
sixth in novice flat and not Sherri West, the Virginia Tech Coach
whose name was accidentally listed as the Enter Sandman novice flat
rider). Still with 18 points to go along with 29 on September 27th
the Virginia Tech Enter Sandman team has a decent shot at the
2009-10 Tournament of Champions series trophy, which will be
determined after the outcome of the Winter Tournament show on
Also scoring 18 was Delaware Valley College. Currently tied
for first in Zone 3, Region 2 with the University of Delaware
(the latter of which also had a team entered at today's show),
the Aggies earned 12 of their 18 points over two flat classes.
Amanda Batista, a sophomore from Wallington, New Jersey nearly
won the exact same class two seasons in a row. Batista won
her walk-trot at Lake Erie College last December but earned a
second this time. However her teammate from Montgomery, New
Jersey faired slightly better. Kristen Lawrence, who is nicknamed
'Klawrence' by Head Coach Cory Kieschnick, was a blue ribbon
winner in intermediate flat shortly thereafter.
|"Historically we always win a flat class," said University of Wisconsin
at Madison Head Coach Mark Aplin (not pictured) before the show. Aplin was refering to the
Badger's efforts at both prior Nationals and Tournament events. Though it took until the
last set of team results were announced, junior Michelle Ahmann of the Badgers (holding
a blue ribbon earned in walk-trot-canter while sitting in front of many teammates) proved
Aplin's prediction to be correct.
Rounding out the top ten was Stonehill College with 15 points.
Sky Hawks senior Quinn Traendly, who was third in open fences the
last time the Tournament of Champions was held at Centenary two
Decembers ago, was second to Mohr in the first class of the day.
Alish Wielgoszinski also earned a red ribbon for Stonehill,
adding five points via a second in walk-trot.
Penn State University (the State College campus, i.e., the big
one) was next with 14 points. Sophomore Elizabeth Lubrano earned
eight of the Nittany Lions' points with a second in open flat and
a fourth in open fences. Brian Stone added four points with a
third in intermediate flat.
The State University of New York at New Paltz was one of four
teams from Zone 2, Region 1 to compete at the Holiday tourney.
Coached by Lindsay Clark's parents Gary and Susan, New Paltz
scored 12 points, technically giving them 12th overall. Carolyn
Smith earned the Hawks' best ribbon of the day with a third in
The University of Wisconsin at Madison was next with 11
points. Before the show started, Badgers Head Coach Mark Aplin
stated that "We will win a flat class, because we always do."
Aplin also hinted that Wisconsin would score a point in over
fences. Aplin was correct on both accounts. Junior Sarah
Bernhoft put Wisconsin on the board with a sixth in novice
fences. The last team classes to be placed were
walk-trot-canter, and at that time junior Michelle Ahmann won
the Badger's lone blue ribbon of the day. Hayley Selch, a
freshman from Los Angeles, California added two points in open
flat while Emily St. Aubin added a point in intermediate flat.
The Badgers were a tournament rarity in that their card was not
full, lacking a walk-trot rider.
Two teams scored exactly ten points to round out the schools
in double figures, with both from New England. Tufts
University was lead by freshman Kennon Ulicny (pronounced
"You-Listen-ee"), who earned a third in novice fences and a
fourth in intermediate flat. The University of New Hampshire
earned all ten of their points in the flat divisions, with
Kate Corda earning the Wildcats' top ribbon with a third in
|Taylor Lautner would be proud! From left to right are Head Coach Michael Dowling, Jenn Washell, Julie Connors, Sami Davis, Colin
Savaria, Lindsay Mohr, Candice Schober, Emily Hawley, Brittany Cunnane and Coach Heather Clark of Centenary College. The eight riders seen here made
up "Team Jacob" and won the 2009 Holiday Tournament of Champions by a ridiculously large 18 points over another Centenary squad named "Team Edward."
Three schools tied with nine points each. Lafayette College
received their nine points in two chunks. Danielle Miranda was third
in open flat behind Clark and Sceats while Kelsey Work was second to
Schubert in intermediate flat. Work only recently pointed out of
novice flat for the record. The University of Michigan could make
the exact same claim as Kelly Leaman (the younger sister of Kim and
former Wolverine Katie) was second in novice flat while Katie Kubacki
was third in walk-trot. The University of Connecticut spread out
their nine points across four classes, with Brittney Lamark's third
in novice flat the Husky's highest placing.
Cazenovia College, Cornell University and the University of Rhode
Island each scored eight points. Cornell received five of their
eight when freshman Emily Kowalchik was second to Schober in novice
flat. Kowalchik was no stranger to the tournament organizers,
having ridden for the Arrigon's Beckett Run Farm IEA team which won
a National Championship her senior year in high school. Cazenovia
scored their eight points over four classes, with Sarah Gray earning
three of them in novice fences. Rhode Island is the final school
mentioned in this story to win a team class, as Mariel Saccucci
accounted for seven points in one ride. A sophomore from Wakefield,
Rhode Island, Saccucci won the first class after the lunch break,
which was open flat.
Rounding out the rest of the scoring were Virginia Tech's other
team, Hokie Nation, with seven points; the University of Delaware
and Drew University, with four each; the University of Georgia
with two points, Rutgers University with one and William Paterson
University with nearly one. Ironically the three stewards on
December 5th were the Head Coaches of Georgia, Rutgers and William
Paterson! Perhaps to make it fair the Head Coaches at Centenary,
Mount Holyoke and Virginia Tech should steward the Winter
Tournament next month!!
The Arrigons called it a "California Split.": The walk-trot
and walk-trot-canter classes were not run in the same format as
the other divisions. Instead of two seperate sections of the
division there were three sections of the low levels, with Judge
Linda Shahinian instructed to watch all three and then select
two firsts, two seconds, two thirds, etc. out of the three
sections. The Arrigons referred to this as a 'California Split,'
which may mean something in a card game but went over the head of
this writer. However having three sections was a good idea, in
that walk-trot and walk-trot-canter riders had more room to move
about with fewer riders and horses in the ring. This also
explains how Maier and Katie Hanley - who were on two separate
Virginia Tech teams - both received points in the same section of
walk-trot-canter when the program itself is set up to avoid such
The Mighty Quinn: The Medal division was the final class to
be placed. 36 riders rode in three separate flat classes before
18 were called back to jump following the final team class.
Survivors of the flat were Nikki Ficano and Liz Rotariu of
Cazenovia, Kristy Kenn of the University of Michigan, Sara
Gumbiner and Terrance Prunty of Delaware Valley, Kelly Gerland of
Lynchburg, Haley Flagg of Drew, Suzanne Snyder of St. Lawrence
University (one of a few riders not from a school with a full
team entered), Amanda Bender from S.U.N.Y. - New Paltz, Lauren
Duffee of the College of the Holy Cross, Lauren Zappitelli of
Wisconsin at Madison, Mohr and Kelly Arvidson of Centenary,
Sceats, Miranda, Saccucci, Strouss and Quinn. Though
she had the option to pin first through twelfth following
the over fences rides, Judge Shahinian opted to test both Kenn
and Quinn. A small number in attendance wondered if this was
a test for second through third, but when all 12 placings were
announced Quinn (from Hope Valley, Rhode Island) was the
Champion and Kenn (a sophomore from Alpharetta, Georgia)
Reserve Champion. Considering her '07 effort and her success
today, Quinn might consider returning for the Medal the next time
a tournament event is at Centenary, as alumni are eligible to
enter the division and Quinn is certainly hard to defeat in this
|From left to right are Drew Head Coach Karen Sykes, Mount Holyoke Head
Coach C.J. Law, Rutgers Head Coach Kelly Lamont-Francfort, Briarwood Farm Owners Jack and Katie
Benson and United States Military Academy Head Coach Peter Cashman. During the awards
presentation the Bensons were given the 2009-10 Pioneer Award, as Briarwood Farm has evolved
into perhaps the most IHSA-friendly barn nationwide. Four different regions have held shows
at Briarwood so far in 2009-10.
Quinn (and the rest of the Medal riders who made the callback) did
not learn where she (they) placed until after the team awards were given out
and also the presentation of the Pioneer Award. The Pioneer award is
not given out every season, and unlike the Lifetime Achievement award
(which save for 2001 has been given out every year since 1993) the
Pioneer Award may be awarded to someone who did not actually compete
or hold a coaching position in the IHSA. For 2009-10 the award went
to two individuals, one of which did ride in the IHSA and the other
who did not. Katie Plum was the Mount Holyoke College Captain for
coach C.J. Law's first season in South Hadley and her second season,
when the Lyons captured their first IHSA National Championship in
the spring of 1986. Plum went on to marry Jack Benson, who owned
the previous incarnation of Briarwood Farm in Oldwick, New Jersey
at the time. The Bensons then moved Briarwood to Readington, New
Jersey during the summer of 1993, where it can be found hosting IHSA
shows to this day. When Briarwood was still in Oldwick, IHSA Founder
and Executive Director Bob Cacchione approached Jack Benson about his
alma mater Fairleigh Dickinson hosting a show there. Benson said yes
and before long other IHSA schools were hosting there as well (former
Columbia and Fordham Head Coach Michael Clarke said that the Fordham
program hosted an IHSA show for the first time anywhere in March of
1980 at Briarwood). Though located
in separate IHSA regions both Drew University and Rutgers University
moved their team lesson programs there. When Zone 3, Region 2 split
into two regions in summer of 2001 three regions were using Briarwood
on a frequent basis (and why not? The Bensons make life simple for
IHSA by providing a flat fee for everything except the Judge. The
horses, the food consession, the portable toilets, you name it. The
single fee to Briarwood covers it all - Editor). By 2006 the lure of
the highly-praised Briarwood horses and the fact that roughly 250
rides per show can be accommodated was too good an offer for the
schools in Central Pennsylvania to refuse. Zone 3, Region 1 became
the fourth region to frequent Briarwood, often staging back-to-backs
to make the most of the three hour trip.
It was only fitting that Law, Drew Head Coach Karen Sykes and
Rutgers Head Coach Kelly Lamont-Francfort were there to unveil the
banner which read "Intercollegiate Horse Show Association
Congratulates Jack and Kate Benson, 2009 Pioneer Award Winners for
service, dedication and support of intercollegiate riding." Jim
Arrigon presented Jack Benson with the actual Pioneer Award, which is
a unique, curve-shaped glass structure. There was some concern that
the Bensons might not be able to reach the Centenary Equestrian Center.
Though normally perhaps a 35 minute drive, a predicted snowstorm
hit Long Valley around 11:00AM, dropping nearly six inches of snow
by the time the show ended at quarter to six in the evening.
Originally the show was to stop at 3:00PM for the Pioneer presentation.
However it came to pass that the Bensons showed up for the start of the
awards presentation about quarter after five. Others on hand included
East Stroudsburg University Head Coach Pat Speziale (who said the roads
were bad going over the mountain) and perhaps former College of St.
Elizabeth Coaches Arlene Kowalski and her daughter Karen Patrick.
While such facilities as Windcrest Farm in Hebron, Connecticut (where
multiple regions have competed) and Lehman Farm in Pittsford, New York
(where Zone 2, Region 2 hosts at least four shows a year) have become
havens for the IHSA it was Briarwood that was the first to open their
arms and make life the easiest by offering the horses, the organization
(many of the Briarwood 'Schoolers' have gone on to compete in the IHSA)
and the accessibility that at one time was the exception rather than
the rule if a program (sans an on-campus facility) wanted to host an
A Learning Experience: Though this writer takes photos at nearly
every IHSA show he attends, he had never attempted to record what some
would call 'Video' at such a show. With a second, brand-new camera on
hand, segments running between 90 seconds and three minutes were
recorded. Included were interviews with some of the winners (Miller,
Gibb, Lawrence, Pabst), a coach and rider (Kowalchik with Cornell Head
Coach Chris Mitchell), a pair of Cazenovia riders who discuss their
early-season success in Zone 2, Region 2 and a two-part interview with
the Bensons (which would have been one segment had the batteries not
needed to be replaced midway through the discussion). These recorded
segments will NOT appear on Campus Equestrian but will instead be found
on the campusequestrian.com Facebook page. The interview with Cazenovia's
Kristen Williams and Paige Brady was uploaded on December 8th but because it
took nearly three hours for three minutes to upload look for a new
segment on our facebook page each day for a few days.
What's next?: Save for the University of Michigan, which will likely
host shows in early January, several of today's teams will next compete
as entries in the Winter Tournament of Champions at Hazelwild Farm in
Fredericksburg, Virginia on January 30th. In order to have a shot at the Tournament Series
Trophy a team must have competed at both the Holiday Tournament and one of
the other two Tournament events. With so few teams at Centenary having
already shown at Randolph College on September 27th, the impetus to compete
in a second tournament and have a shot at the trophy comes down to this
final contest, to be hosted by the University of Mary Washington. Provided
Centenary enters that one, it will be hard to keep the Trophy from setting
up shop in Long Valley. If the Cyclones do not compete on the final
Saturday in January then the door is open for Virginia Tech, Mount Holyoke,
Lynchburg and others to make a run for it.
Show Incidentals: Cloudy skies to start, followed by heavy snow
with accumulations up to six inches. Temperatures in the upper 30's.
Entire show held indoors. Start time: 9:05AM. Finish: 5:49PM.
Judge: Linda Shahinian. Stewards: Ginny Smith/University of Georgia;
Hayley Rooney, William Paterson University and Kelly Francfort/Rutgers
