Three Proctor High School graduates not only saw Fenway Park, they sang the National Anthem in front of a full house recently. Hillary Tabor, 18, and Jenna Coughenour, 20, both from Proctor, and Ali Flewelling, 18, from Pittsford, sang the anthem as part of Vermont Day at Fenway. After listening to a tape of the trio singing that Ali’s mom sent to the Red Sox, they were invited to perform. They’d sung the National Anthem numerous times at high school basketball games to a crowd that  never toppped 1,000 people, said the Rutland Herald. None of the friends had ever been to a professional baseball game before. "I feel so lucky to be a part of this whole thing. It seems like nothing that would happen to three girls from Proctor," Tabor said. Best part? They got to see the Sox win 2-1.
