No Horsing Around

Alex Calvert, a junior nursing major from Piqua, Ohio, became the first Xavier student to qualify for the Collegiate National Championship Horse Show by winning her division in the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association Zone 6 Championships.

Calvert advanced further than any student in the brief history of Xavier’s equestrian club team, scoring enough points in regular season shows to qualify for regional competition, where she placed Reserve Champion—second place. Calvert beat 10 top riders from five different regions in Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia, Michigan and Canada to qualify.
