Woodside vaulters win national honors

 

Alicen Divita of Woodside Vaulters was named Vaulter of the Year at the annual awards banquet of the U.S. Equestrian Federation held Jan. 22 in Lexington, Kentucky. Isabelle Bibbler Parker, head coach of the Woodside Vaulters, was honored as Coach of Year.

Ms. Divita, 21, a resident of Redwood City, represented the U.S. at the World Equestrian Games in Lexington last October, finishing in seventh place. She has been vaulting since age 12 and has won national championships at every level of competition. She is a student at UC Berkeley.

Ms. Parker has led Woodside Vaulters to four A-Team national championships and a bronze medal at the 1998 World Equestrian Games in Rome.

Individual Horse of the Year honors went to Giovanni, a 13-year-old Mecklenburg warmblood owned by Woodside Vaulters.
