Back in May, Tristen Buettel, a junior at Prep, was scheduled to sing the National Anthem at Citifield. There
was an article about it in the Daily News, and she was all geared up
for that night's game! Unfortunately, it got rained out---even though it
barely rained that night!
The game was rescheduled for July 18th, and the weather forecast warned about the possibility of hail! We kept our fingers crossed and the weather held
out! Kristen's performance was excellent!

Coincidentally, another SFP alumna and member of the SFP board of trustees, Joanne Persico '78, also sang the National Anthem at Citifield prior to a St. John's University baseball game that was held prior to the "official" opening of the new ballpark.
