Downtown Pep Rally Scheduled for March 15


Celebrate the Wofford Terrier basketball team’s Southern Conference championship and NCAA Tournament on Monday, March 15 from 5:30 p.m. 7:30 p.m. with a free event in the heart of downtown Spartanburg! The public is invited to send the Terriers off to March Madness in style.

“We are proud of these young men. As they go off to battle the Goliaths of college sports, we want the world to know that Spartanburg is behind them 100 percent,” said Mayor Junie White.

“Meet the Terriers” is a two-hour family event that will feature an autograph session with the entire Wofford team, brief comments from Coach Young and City of Spartanburg leaders. Music will be provided by the Wofford Thundering Terriers Pep Band/Jazz Ensemble and fans will have the chance to watch highlights from the championship on a big screen!

Families are encouraged to attend and enjoy interactives such as the Terrier Tumbler moonbounce and shoot hoops on goals set up adjacent to Morgan Square. Ben Wofford Books will also have a display selling Wofford merchandise. (SoCon pending)

“The success of our basketball team not only brings great recognition to Wofford College, but certainly the City of Spartanburg and our entire community. We look forward to giving our fans this opportunity to meet the team and celebrate this historic event,” said assistant athletic director for marketing and promotions Lenny Mathis. “We are grateful to the City for making this type of event possible for the community.”
