Last Friday night on September 15, 2017, the Admiral Farragut Academy Color Guard marched the American Flag for the Rays game against the Red Sox. Five cadets marched onto the field with junior Hunter Gordon as their Commander. About 15,000 fans watched as the national anthem was played. Afterward, everyone watched the action-packed game between their home team and the Red Sox.
It was an eventful and exciting way to start off the weekend!” said Hunter Gordon. “Thank you to Senior Naval Science Instructors, Commander Rick Schock and First Sergeant Mark Sanchez, for taking us to this event.”
Hunter has been a member of the Admiral Farragut Academy Color Guard for three years now and is proud of all the team has accomplished. She hopes to command future Color Guards for the Rays and represent her school in the most honorable way.
