Equestrian Competes at Cazenovia

CAZENOVIA, N.Y. - SUNY Geneseo senior Alishah Bhimani earned a win in Novice Fences to point out of the division and qualify for Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) Regionals later this year, as the Knights rode to a pair of sixth-place finishes at Cazenovia over the weekend. 

Senior Rachel Powers earned a first-place finish in Beginner Walk Trot Canter while sophomore Sarea Shariff placed first in the Walk Trot on Saturday. 

On Sunday, Powers marked Geneseo's only first place finish, with another strong showing in the Beginner Walk Trot Canter. Seniors Samantha Childs and Tessa LiVoti along with Shariff were point riders for the Knights.
