Through one team class at Zone 3 Zones last April 8th Rutgers University was in second place. This was after Rachel VanDemark (center, between her parents) won a red ribbon in team open over fences. From South Brunswick, New Jersey, VanDemark was one of two Rutgers riders to place as high as second in a team class that day, with Malinda Pazel (not pictured) a red ribbon winner in team walk-trot.

Seen here with her Mother, Tara Kennedy of Bloomsburg University (on left) represented Region 4 at 2017 IHSA Nationals in the Cacchione Cup Competition. From Flemington, New Jersey, Kennedy earned 75 points in the combined hunter seat open levels last season which also helped Bloomsburg stay in the race for overall high point team going into the final regular season show. Though Rutgers won the region Bloomsburg finished second for the first time in program history.
Kutztown University finished fifth overall in the Region 4 hunter seat team standings in 2016-17 only two points from fourth. From Newtown, Pennsylvania, Kaley Unger (pictured) was the only member of the Golden Bears to qualify through to Zones. Unger was tenth in individual novice over fences at Zones on April 8th. Kutztown will host the first show anywhere in Zone 3 this season. This event will be at Valley Mist Farm in Oley, Pennsylvania on September 24th which will also be the first IHSA show held at this facility to the best of our knowledge.
A first and a second - Not a bad way to start an IHSA career! From Teaneck, New Jersey, Danielle Seelenfreund (pictured) won her novice fences and placed second in novice flat last September 24th to kick off her freshman year at Rutgers.
Though her name is pronounced like the word "Sits" she stood tall for the Mountain Hawks in 2016-17. From Raleigh, North Carolina, Meredith Sitze of Lehigh University (on left, with head coach Marisa Kalmar) was the only member of the Mountain Hawks to qualify for Regionals. Sitze rode in the second heat of the novice flat at Regionals on April 1st and eventually placed second in the work-off. Sitze went on to finish her sophomore season with a tenth in novice flat at Zone 3 Zones in Long Valley, New Jersey on April 8th.
She was a standout at Delaware Valley College in the mid-to-late 1990's. After several seasons riding alumni Tracey Lightner (pictured) finally made it through both Regionals and Zones to compete at IHSA Nationals. Lightner, who was Tracey Evans as an undergraduate, is seen here after placing second in alumni fences at Zones on April 8th.
From Matawan, New Jersey, Laina Tollefsen of Rutgers University (on right) was the only Region 4 rider to win a blue ribbon at Zone 3 Zones on April 8th. After having won the walk-trot class of four at Regionals a week earlier, Tollefsen won the individual walk-trot class made up of ten riders in Long Valley to advance through to IHSA Nationals. Scarlet Knights head coach Kelly Francfort (on left) has guided Rutgers to Region Titles four of the past six seasons and in 2017-18 will try to make it three straight for the first time in program history.
