Trinity-Byrnes Equestrian Team making strides
Trinity‐Byrnes Collegiate School’s Erin Lassiter, an 8th-grader from Florence, is competing in Wellington, Florida, April 24‐26 for a National IEA (Interscholastic Equestrian Association) title, along with her team from the Tally Ho Equestrian Center located in Timmonsville. These riders have successfully advanced throughout a series of heated competitions to be able to compete against the best at the IEA Nationals in Florida this coming weekend.
Tally‐Ho started an IEA team back in 2012, with coaches Katrina Hutto and Teresa Blackmon at the helm, and Lassiter has been part of the team from the beginning. Along with TBCS students Gresham Hindman (a 9th-grader from Florence) and Anna Price (a 10th-grader from Dillon), Erin also represents the Trinity-Byrnes Collegiate School equestrian program, which last season (2013-14) placed a remarkable “Reserve Champion” (second place) in the SCISA State Championships held at Tally Ho. This year, the team competed in two SCISA events and then on March 7 in the SCISA state championship, in which they placed 5th overall.
