Team should not be disqualified for ‘thanking God’

A student’s opinion

A track participant from Columbus, Texas, pointed his finger at the sky as his team won, in a gesture dedicating the win to God, he said. Officials viewed it as “excessive celebration,” however, and disqualified the team, denying them a chance to advance to the state championships. A Floresville student shares his views on this here.


I am a seventh-grader at Floresville Middle School. This past week, a young man won a race and pointed to God to give thanks for helping him win the race. They should have been glad that he gave thanks to God and set an example for others to do so, but instead they disqualified him and took away his win.

I know for a fact that in the First Amendment that it is our right to have our own religion so why are they disqualifying this young man? I strongly believe that they are trying to take away our freedom to worship our God. And that is what our forefathers fought for.

I think the young man was right to do that and so he should have his win back. President Ronald Reagan once said, “If we ever forget that we’re one nation under God, then we will be one nation gone under.”

I believe that is the truth.
