Immaculate Heart’s Alyce Bittar kisses her mount, Cara B, after winning a trophy at the Longines Masters Grand Slam in Long Beach.

Bittar and her mount, Cara B, delivered the fastest time – 49.59 seconds – in the Just One Eye show-jumping event, 1.10-meter division. This is the third year in a row that Bittar has competed with success against some of the world’s best show-jumping equestrians at the elite event.

“Alyce has incredible control and skill as a rider and jumper,” says Immaculate Heart Athletic Director Maureen Rodriguez. “Given her age and talent, she can look forward to many more top performances.”

Bittar, a petite yet spry athlete who stands not even five-feet-tall in her riding boots, is a member of Immaculate Heart’s equestrian team, which competes in the Interscholastic Equestrian League (IEL). Last spring Bittar won the Varsity Jumper’s Championship by scoring the most points of any jumper at the four IEL competitions during the school year.

Along with representing her high school, Bittar competes at the Longines Masters Grand Slam and other jumping events around the world. In September, Bittar won the gold in both individual and team events in her division in the United States Hunter Jumper Association Derby staged by Blenheim Equisports in San Juan Capistrano.
