Equestrian Team Honored with I-77 Sign

BLYTHEWOOD – As the top-ranked University of South Carolina equestrian team saddles up to host the SEC Equestrian Championships at One Wood Farm in Blythewood this weekend, the state will honor both the team and the town on Thursday, March 27, by installing a sign at Exit 27 on Interstate 77.

The sign will indicate to interstate travelers that Blythewood is the proud “home of the University of South Carolina Equestrian Team.”

“On behalf of the Blythewood community, we are proud to host the top-ranked USC equestrian team,” said State Sen. Joel Lourie. “With this sign on the interstate, we can now show our enthusiasm to the rest of the world.”

“We congratulate coach Boo Major, her staff and the student athletes of the USC equestrian team on a fine season,” said J. Michael Ross, Blythewood’s mayor. “We’re proud the team considers Blythewood their home, and we hope to see these Gamecocks bring home the SEC championship trophy!”

Sen. Lourie will present a smaller keepsake version of the sign to the town and the team on Saturday, March 29, during a social event at One Wood Farm that will close the 2014 SEC equestrian championships. During this two-day event, the University of South Carolina, Auburn University, University of Georgia and Texas A&M University will compete in preliminary rounds on Friday, March 28, with the consolation and championship meets on Saturday, March 29. Admission to all meets is free; One Wood Farm is located at 1201 Syrup Mill Road in Blythewood.
