IHSA ZONE 2 - REGION 2

Deep in the back of AllTech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington there lies a "Trophy Room" full of IHSA-related ribbons, awards, thank-you notes and even Trophies. And the few who have been escorted into the Trophy Room have not left empty-handed. Last May Kristen Wesoja of Cazenovia College went to the Trophy Room three times. Her first time was to receive gifts for placing sixth in team western horsemanship. Her last time was to receive gifts for placing third in the individual AQHA High Point Open Rider division. And in between was the biggie: Wesoja is seen here behind the Individual Open Reining Trophy. From Croydon, New Hampshire, Wesoja won the division, which is sponsored by the National Reining Horse Association. The NRHA also invites the top four in the division to compete at the NRHA Derby in Oklahoma City during the summer versus eight other college riders (four from the NCEA and four choosen as at-large entries by the NRHA). So even with IHSA Nationals and her senior year completed Wesoja still had another ride ahead of her.

We checked and we looked and we looked and we checked and to the best of our knowledge Allison Epstein (pictured) is the only rider to compete for Syracuse University ever to lead the Region 2 hunter seat open rider standings. From Dix Hills, Long Island (NY) Epstein is seen here waiting for horse draw on the concourse of AllTech Arena in Lexington, Kentucky on day two of 2017 IHSA Nationals. Epstein was one of 38 riders to draw for the over fences phase of the Cacchione Cup competition. Though she was out of the ribbons in the division Epstein has one more season at Syracuse to attempt a return trip to Nationals.

The State University of New York at Oswego had their run of Western Region Titles halted at seven during the 2016-17 season. However Dan Hatch of the Lakers was not stopped in his bid to go deep into the post-season. Seen here with co-coach Dan Bergstresser, Hatch (on right) won the individual beginner western horsemanship at the Hamburg, New York Semifinal on March 26th. From Solvay, New York, Hatch finished the season by placing fifth in the same division at IHSA Nationals in Lexington on May 7th.

St. Lawrence University captured their seventh consecutive Hunter Seat Region Title in 2017 which is the program's longest streak since the 1980's. And the Saints continued another streak that fans of Region 2 can be proud of: Since the process of eliminating teams at Zones started (for Zone 2 in April of 2001) every Region 2 school with a full team at Zones has gone on to compete at IHSA Nationals. St. Lawrence was second to Skidmore (the host school) at Zone 2 Zones on April 8th so the Saints once again had a full team in tow at the year-end National event. From Ferrisburg, Vermont, Merle Beach (pictured) finished her freshman year by earning the Saints' final two points with a fifth in team open over fences at Nationals on May 6th. St. Lawrence scored 13 points in total, good for fifth place out of 16 teams.

Cazenovia College went ten years between Western Region Titles when they won Region 2 last season. And not since 2005 had the Wildcats sent a full Western Team to IHSA Nationals. Semifinals were held not too far away at the Showplex at the Hamburg Fairgrounds in Hamburg, New York on March 25th and 26th. At Semifinals Gabrielle "Gabby" Tebo was second in team novice western horsemanship to boost the Cazenovia team point total to 19 at the time. This kept the Wildcats in third place which they would not relinquish. With the top three teams advancing to Nationals Cazenovia was qualified for the first time in 12 seasons. From Wells, New York, Tebo is seen here before placing sixth in team novice western at Nationals on May 5th.
