After the entertaining races, we heard Daniel Longest (MD) sing a song about rain which reminded us of the deluge that morning. Asa Ruiz (TN) played “Tarantella,” Rachel Gregory (TN) sang and Aditya Srivastava (TN) performed an original song on guitar. Andrew Grimley (TX) transported us to Scotlandby playing his bagpipes, Hibah Hassan sang to us, Rachel Maddalena (TX) prepped us for the olympics by showing off her gymnastic skills, Lauren Arndt (WI) not only sang,but also playing the piano. The Oklahoma Dancers (OK), lip synced to *NSync’s “Pop,” Katherine Barbano (VA) tapped her heart out, and Patrick Andriesen (IL) serenaded us.
