Bridgeport's Sammie Johnson to Continue Equestrian Career at UGA


Bridgeport's Sammie Johnson signed with the University of Georgia to continue her Equestrian career on Thursday afternoon.

The senior said she learned the sport at a young age at a farm near the Bridgeport area.

Johnson said a chance to head to a major Division-I school for any sport is an honor in itself.

"I went on an unofficial visit during September of my junior year and I fell in love with the campus" said Johnson. "The girls are great and the coach is amazing and I couldn't see myself going anywhere else. The academics are also really awesome."
