From Sparks, Maryland come the Watts sisters, each of whom rode for the University of South Carolina (Columbia) in 2019-20. Lauren (on left) has two more seasons
with the Fighting Gamecocks while Jackie (on right) is a member of the class of 2020. Jackie Watts was technically fourth in the Region 3 hunter seat
open rider standings this season. South Carolina came out third in a close team race that was decided at the final show, known as the "Upstate Extravaganza" (held
at the recently-opened Tryon International Equestrian Center, with Wofford, Furman and Converse serving as co-hosts) on February 22nd. College of Charleston was
fourth, the Fighting Gamecocks third, Clemson reserve champion and Georgia Southern University the Region Champion team for the first time in program history. Only
13 points separated Georgia Southern from Charleston.
