Equestrian Brings Home Ivy Title With Four Individual Champions

The equestrian team brought home an Ivy League championship with its 41-point performance on Saturday at Volvo Farm in Westford, Mass. Freshman Justine Gentilini was one of two riders at the event to win both of her classes (Novice Fences and Intermediate Flat) and won the High Point Rider for the competition. Four Cornell riders won individual titles and three finished as reserve champions. Sophomore Rachel Klion won the Novice Fences championship, senior Caroline Shulman won the Open Flat, junior Zoe Samuel won the Intermediate Flat and sophomore Morgan Broccoli won the Advanced Walk/Trot/Canter championship. Cornell’s reserve champions were junior Brooke Cagwin (Open Fences), sophomore Mary Winans (Intermediate Flat) and junior Elizabeth Briggs (Advanced Walk /Trot/ Canter).

Equestrian Qualifies Five Riders for Zone Championships

Of the 15 riders that the equestrian team brought to the Region III championships in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., on Saturday, a third of them advanced to the Zone II championships.
Of the seven divisions, the Red notched a Zone Qualifier in five of them.
With Skidmore hosting, the regionals opened with the Open Fences division, but a Cornell rider did not break the top-3 — necessary to advance to the Zone championships — until the next category: In Intermediate Fences, junior Brooke Cagwin took third.
Senior co-captains Dana Kendrick and Caroline Schulman moved on to the championship round of Open Flat competition. Schulman finished in seventh place, but Kendrick scored the regional reserve champion spot by placing second in the finals — moving on to the Zone championships.
