AU English equestrian team ends season at Zone II Championships

HACKETTSTOWN, NJ — Three members of the Alfred University English equestrian team competed Saturday at the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) Zone II championship show, hosted by Centenary College.

Sophomore Barb Koziol (Syracuse, NY/Bishop Ludden) and senior Robyn Murray (Albany, NY/Academy of Holy Names) each finished third in their respective events: Koziol in novice equitation over fences and Murray in walk-trot-canter. Sophomore Maire Cosgrove (White Haven, PA/Bishop Hoban) placed seventh in open equitation on the flat.

The English team’s season has concluded, as only the top two riders in each event at Zones advance to compete at the IHSA National Championships. One rider form the AU Western team, junior Kristen Kovatch (Lansdale, PA/North Penn), did qualify to compete (in advanced horsemanship) at the IHSA nationals, scheduled for April 23-26 in Murfreesboro, TN.
