What an open rider race! Going into the final regular season show Centenary riders Anthony DeSimone (with 68 points), Deanna Zajic (64), Ty Linde (62) and Grace Weidner (also at 62) were separated by only six points. The open fences saw Linde win, Zajic place second, Weidner fourth and DeSimone fifth. Then Linde (on right) won the first of three sections of open flat to move six points ahead of DeSimone. Zajic and Weidner did not overtake Linde in section 7B. DeSimone had to win section 7C to earn the top spot for the year and he did! A senior from Shrewsbury, Massachusetts, DeSimone (on left) will represent Region 3 at IHSA Nationals in the Cacchione Cup Competition May 1st and 2nd in West Springfield, Massachusetts, a major feat as he was the Cyclone's team walk-trot-canter rider at 2012 Nationals in Raleigh as a freshman.
