On Saturday February 19, 2011 the Pioneers and Mount Holyoke College cohosted the two final Western IHSA horseshows of the season at Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, MA. The day began well with freshman Maggie Vogel (S. Acworth, NH) winning her first class, followed by juniors Molly-Kate Carven (Amesbury, MA) and Kara Filder (Marshfield, MA) earning a second and fourth place standing, respectively.
Senior Janel Beauregard (Cumberland, RI) put in two solid rides earning a second and fourth place finish. Juniors Brian Buchannan (Troy, NY) and Alyssa Woronik (Salem, CT) faced off in Advance Horsemanship with Woronik earning a win and a fifth place ribbon and Buchanan earning two second place finishes. Sacred Heart also earned reserve high point team.
The Pioneers now look forward to the championship season with Carven and Beauregard both set to compete at Regional Competitions. Woronik is headed to Semi-Finals, to be held this year in Springfield, Missouri.
