PORT BYRON, Ill. (KWQC) - A third grade student from Riverdale Elementary saved the day at a playoff basketball game earlier this week when the PA system, used to play the national anthem before the game, failed.
Brecken Peterson, 9, eagerly jumped up and volunteered to sing the national anthem in place of the PA system at Tuesday’s basketball game between Riverdale and Princeton.
Brecken had no advance notice and no time to practice, but he sang the national anthem and received applause and cheers from all corners of the gymnasium.
