2012 ZONE 5 ZONES RESULTS

Virginia Intermont College prevailed at home at 2012 Zone 5 Zones, scoring 44 points to win outright. This was a one point improvement over their 2011 Zones effort, which resulted in a tie with Savannah College of Art & Design at 43-all (VI won the tiebreaker). With the win VI sends a full hunter seat team to IHSA Nationals for the 13th consecutive season, which is the current longest active hunter seat streak of full-team appearances at Nationals. Savannah College of Art & Design will also have a full team at Nationals, earning reserve high point team honors with 41 points. VI was also very successful in the individual classes, earning four top-two placings including Lauren Fay's first in open fences and second in open flat. Region 4 rival Virginia Tech also faired well, advancing three riders individually. Murray State University from Region 1 advanced two undergraduates to Nationals as well as two alumni. Former Racers rider Ashley Eggersdorfer advanced twice, placing second in both alumni divisions. With her win in individual open flat McKenzie Armour of the College of Charleston has advanced to Nationals individually each of the past three seasons.
