Alexandra Koury Places Sixth at IHSA Zone 1 Championships

SOUTH HADLEY, Mass. – UMass Dartmouth senior equestrian rider Alexandra Koury (Holden, Mass.) represented her squad last weekend at the Intercollegiate Horse Shows Association (IHSA) Zone 1 Championships.

Koury placed sixth in her novice equitation on the flat class at the event, hosted by Mount Holyoke College on Saturday. She advanced to the Zones after placing second in the event at the Region 1 Finals on March 26, capping her four-year career with her first Zones appearance. The top two individuals and top teams at the Zone finals advance to the national show.

Equestrian wraps up the 2015-16 year in successful fashion, securing two High Point Team performances, the first two for the squad under head coach Mary Charette. The first came last October 24 at Roger Williams, and the second on November 14 in the Corsairs' home show, co-hosted by Rhode Island College.
