Competing in Richmond, Va., for the second time in as many weekends at a show hosted by Virginia Commonwealth University, Liberty University's Hunt Seat equestrian team improved its total score with 31 points for another top-5 finish in Saturday's Zone 4, Region 4 competition.

Sweet Briar College, which competed with the Lady Flames in Region 5 from 2014-15 before joining them in Region 4 this year, was the overall team champion with 39 points.

Mallory Zodda won her Walk-Trot division.

Liberty earned two first-place finishes — from freshman Brooke Boan in Walk-Trot-Canter and sophomore Mallory Zodda in Walk-Trot. Junior Morgan Faber, from nearby Chester, Va., placed second in Intermediate Flat while sophomore Bailey Boan finished second in both Novice Flat and Novice Fences.

The two Boan sisters accounted for 17 of Liberty's 31 points.

Also placing third for the Lady Flames were senior Hannah Petersen (Novice Flat), senior Emily Chafins (Walk-Trot-Canter), and sophomore Sarah Reece (Walk-Trot).

Liberty will next travel to Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Va., for a one-day show on Oct. 29.
