Equestrian Qualifies Two Riders For Zones

April 4, 2006

The Bears had three riders qualify for Zones this past weekend at Regionals. Sophomore Whitney Keefe led the way for Brown as she qualified for both open fences and was named Brown's high point rider while senior Alexis Gilbard qualified on open flat.

After her first ride in open flat, Keefe was one of six riders to be called back by the judges and pinned second and was later named to take on the nations top riders for the Cacchione Cup at Nationals. Gilbard pinned first in open flat, earning her way to Zones this weekend.
