IHSA ZONE 3 - REGION 1

Photo
There are many Penn State University campusus throughout Pennsylvania and three of them have equestrian teams in Region 1. The PSU Harrisburg hunter seat team is coached by Joanna Seaman (on right) and she has a pair of riders qualified for Regionals through six shows. One of them is junior Kelsey Horn (on left). From Boston, Massachusetts, Horn is qualified in advanced walk-trot-canter.

No one on Penn State - Altoona is qualified for Regionals but in this case there is a good reason. The Altoona team is brand-new in 2016-17. On November 13th only Lauren Rinda (on left) and Kristin Newvine (on right) were entered for Altoona. In spite of being a two-person team that day Rinda won both of her novice classes, putting the freshman from Malvern, Pennsylvania into a five-way ride-off for high point.

And of course there is Penn State "Main Campus," often called 'State College,' 'University Park' or 'Happy Valley.' This is the team which has won a hunter seat region title every year since 2003. From Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, Katie Groomes of the Nittany Lions is seen here at the 2015 Holiday Tournament of Champions. On November 13th Groomes won both of her intermediate classes which made her the first of five riders that day to qualify for a ride-off (teammate Melissa Stecklow was the second a short time later). It should be noted that Groomes has probably seen as many IHSA shows as any undergraduate in the region, for her Mother Janis (not pictured) has coached teams at both Gettysburg College and Mount St. Mary's University (which competes in Zone 4, Region 1) since before Katie started grade school. And Katie helped out in a variety of capacities at these shows (and still does).

After Groomes won her intermediate fences someone on the Penn State (main campus) team said "We have won every class so far!" Of course that jinxed the Nittany Lions, as Elizabeth Mohler of Bucknell University (pictured) ended their four class win streak with a blue ribbon of her own in open fences. It was the first IHSA ride in the open flat for the Bison junior from Catonsville, Maryland as she had pointed out of intermediate flat a day earlier at the November 12th Dickinson College show. The division is probably irrelevant, as Mohler is an old pro at this point. Mohler rode for the Garrison Forest IEA team for many years before heading off to Bucknell.

Earlier we talked about her and now here she is! Gettysburg College head coach Janis Groomes (on right) has seen her Bullets improve by a point at each of the three most recent shows. Gettysburg scored 27 points when they co-hosted at Wilson on November 5th, 28 at the Dickinson show and a season-high 29 on November 13th. The best Bullet on the 13th was Katherine Ellis (on left), a freshman from Maplewood, New Jersey who won both of her novice classes to become part of the five-way ride-off (which was not really a ride-off but a question-off with judge Michelle Morosky). Ellis went on to earn reserve high point rider at the sixth and final Region 1 fall show.

So who was the fifth rider in the ride-off? You will have to look at the team standings page for that one. Pictured here is the first of three Susquehanna University riders to win a class on November 13th. She is Shannon Schone (pronounced "Show-Knee") and her blue ribbon was earned in the fifth of five sections of novice fences. A junior from Coopersburg, Pennsylvania, Schone is seen here in front of the ribbon table/announcer's table, which the River Hawks staffed throughout the day.
