The Bulldog Choir, made up of 50 third and fourth graders from South Edmonson Elementary School, performed the “Star-Spangled Banner” for Tuesday night’s Hot Rod’s game.
It was spirit night at the ball park for South Edmonson, as the Bowling Green Hot Rod’s hosted the Rome Braves. The night began with Ella Ruth Lowe, preschooler daughter of Travis and Shannon Lowe, throwing out the game’s first pitch. Ella Ruth was the top seller of tickets for the school fundraiser.
The Bulldog Choir members that braved the cold until the seventh inning joined together once again to sing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame." Choir director, Mrs. Jessica Doyle, said, “I am so proud of my Bulldog Choir. They received numerous compliments tonight for all their hard work. This was a night they will never forget.” Mrs. Jessica wanted to note her appreciation for the school’s PTO officers as well. “Thank you to our amazing PTO president, Amanda Denham, and Vice president Christine Barrett, for organizing this event for our students. We appreciate all their volunteer work to help our school.”
The Hot Rods pulled out a 5-4 win over the Braves.
The Bulldog Choir will be putting on a spring concert featuring the songs from the movie "SING" for the community on Monday night, April 25th, at 6 PM in the South Edmonson gym. All friends and families are invited to attend.
