The Equestrian team earned first place at IEA Regional Finals on Saturday, February 26. The first-place finish secures a spot at next month’s Zone Finals for a chance to advance to the National Finals in April.

Congratulations also to individual riders Elizabeth S. ’24, Helen T. ’24, Daisy B. ’24, Rachel P. ’22, and Maddie S. ’24 who qualified for Zone Finals by finishing first or second in their individual events on Saturday.
