On October 22nd Savannah Smith of Randolph - Macon College (on right) won the second and third classes of the day (open flat and intermediate fences, respectively). Then teammate Eliza VanderWoude (on left) won the fourth and sixth classes (intermediate fences and the second section of intermediate flat, again respectively). When the day was done no one else entered in the VCU show had won twice, so each took part in a question-off with judge Glen Moody (not pictured). VanderWoude won the question-off (held in lieu of a ride-off) and she and Smith posed with team advisor Dana Lesesne afterward. VanderWoude, who is a freshman from Warrenton, Virginia, was high point rider for the first time while Randolph - Macon finished third for the day with 37 points.

From Salisbury, Maryland, Emily Thaw (on left) earned 12 of Christopher Newport University's 28 points on October 22nd with a first in intermediate flat and a second in intermediate fences. Head coach Ryann Winn (on right) saw her Captains technically finish sixth on September 24th but improve to tie William & Mary for fourth with 28 points each on October 22nd.
Virginia Commonwealth University hosted the second Region 4 show of the season on October 22nd, and Morgan Faber was the first of three Commodores to win a blue ribbon that day. A sophomore from Chester, Virginia, Faber poses with her parents after winning her novice fences and placing third in novice flat.
From Virginia Beach, Virginia, Hannah Leware (center) was one of at least three riders on October 22nd to win their first-ever IHSA blue ribbon. A freshman, Leware won Old Dominion University's only blue ribbon of the day with a first in advanced walk-trot-canter. Leware is seen here with her Mother and Grandfather along with the blue ribbon.
As of October 22nd The College of William & Mary had at least five riders with a strong chance of qualifying for Regionals this season. One of them is senior Jessica Bortolussi (pictured), who could point out of both novice divisions. From Andover, Maryland, Bourtolussi was second in her novice fences class at Stillmeadows Farm on October 22nd.
With 33 points the University of Richmond earned reserve high point team honors at the September 24th season opener which the Spiders also hosted. Through two shows Richmond has but one blue ribbon, which was won by freshman Danielle Holliday (on right, with coach Natalie Shinamon) in intermediate fences on September 24th (her first IHSA over fences ride). Richmond scored 25 on October 22nd and sit in fourth place through two shows.
University of Mary Washington riders won three blue ribbons at each of the first two shows. However no Eagle had won two blue ribbons through October 22nd. Since we have wanted to post this photo of Meredith Gregory of the Eagles with her dog "Lucy" from the fall 2014 University of Richmond show for some time her first in novice flat on October 22nd provides the perfect opportunity. Mary Washington was third on opening day (only four points out of first) and reserve champion on the 22nd (only a point out of first) and sit in second place headed into the October 29/30 William & Mary-hosted weekend.
