Eight Equestrian Riders Named to IHSA All-Academic Team

SEWANEE, Tenn. - The Intercollegiate Horse Shows Association has selected eight Sewanee equestrian riders to the annual IHSA All-Academic Team.

Three student-athletes: Catherine Bratton, Margaret Dupree and Catherine Walthall were each selected to the First Team, which recognizes riders with a 3.8 grade point average or higher.

Allison Bernardino, Sarah Buchholz, Siena London, Mary Lillian Tessmann and Elizabeth Westerfeld were selected to the second, who each attributed a grade point average of 3.5 or better.

Dupree and Bernardino each earned their second straight appearance to the postseason award. Both riders were Second Team members a year ago.

The purpose of the IHSA National All-Academic Award is to recognize the individual academic achievements of our participating undergraduate and alumni members each year.

Their names will be in the program at the upcoming IHSA National Championships May 2-5 in Syracuse, N.Y.
