EAST LANSING, Mich.--The Adrian College equestrian team closed out the stock portion of its regular-season schedule on Saturday at the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association Stock Seat Regional Championships hosted at the Michigan State University Pavilion.

Junior Kelsey Suiter won her division for Zone 6, Region 4, and will be headed to the semifinals at West Texas A&M on Saturday and Sunday, March 25-26. For the first time in program history, the Bulldogs will be sending more than one team member to the IHSA Semifinals. All told, Adrian has produced seven regional qualifiers, plus a first-ever Reserve High Point Champion.

Adrian was represented at the IHSA Stock Seat Regionals by senior Gabbi Novak, juniors Rachel Kanaziz, Ariel Anderson, and Suiter. All the student-athletes rode well and finished the season strong, according to new head coach Jody Prime, who added "I'm proud of the stock and hunt seat teams this year and looking forward to a great 2017-18 season."

The Hunt seat squad has its final regular season meet this weekend, Feb. 11-12, at Albion College. The meet starts at 8 a.m. The event is rescheduled from Jan. 29.
