Equestrian

The equestrian team tallied 36 points to tie for first place with Johnson and Wales at the University of Rhode Island IHSA Show. The win places the Bears just three points behind first-place URI in the IHSA Zone One Region One standings going into the final weekend of spring regular-season competition.

Bruno produced an excellent showing, as it took home six blue ribbons on the day the team’s seven seniors were honored for their contributions. Genoveva Eguiguren ’18, Natalia Moriel ’18 and Yinan Liu ’19 each registered top finishes in their respective classes to sweep the walk-trot division. Captain Kabisa Baughen ’17, Anna Seto ’18 and Clara Mae Maynard ’17 also won their events to add to the Bears’ ribbon count. Seto won reserve high point rider for her performance.

Bruno will complete the regular season next weekend with the Holy Cross IHSA Show, but three Bears have already guaranteed that their seasons will continue past the weekend’s events. Maynard, Victoria Flagg ’18 and Elena Buchsbaum ’16 will all be participating in postseason competition.

Gymnastics

The gymnastics team hosted Temple, Southern Connecticut and URI’s club team for a quad meet in its last regular season outing Saturday evening. Leading through all four rotations, Bruno recorded its fifth victory of the season.

Before the meet began, the team’s four seniors — captain Diana Walters ’16, Stephanie Choo ’16, Alexandra Chretien ’16 and Corey Holman ’16 — were honored in front of a spirited and sizable audience at the Pizzitola Sports Center.

Jorden Mitchell ’17 and Caroline Morant ’17 tied for first place in the all-around after registering a 39.050. The title was Mitchell’s sixth of the season and Morant’s third.

Next weekend, the team will look to continue recording commanding performances and head to William and Mary to compete in the ECAC Championship.

Fencing

The fencing teams competed at the NCAA Northeast Regional competition at Vassar Sunday.

On the men’s side, Simon Jones ’16 paced the Bears with his fifth-place finish in the epee. Umar Masood ’19 was the only other member of Bruno’s squad to advance to the final round, finishing 12th in the foil.

For the women’s team, Audrey Lee ’16 notched the highest ranking for the Bears with a 17th place finish in the foil, which had a pool of 47 competitors.

Bruno hopes to send some fencers to the NCAA Championships in two weeks after the selection committee makes its final decisions Tuesday.
