Track Team Disqualified for Thanking God

Post by SamCogar on Sun May 05, 2013 4:22 am

A Texas high school track team was disqualified from competing in the state championships because one of the runners made a gesture thanking God after he crossed the finish line.

Derrick Hayes, the anchor of the Columbus High School 4100 relay team had just crossed the finish line when he raised his finger to the sky thanking the Lord for winning the race that would send them to the state finals.

But a judge with the University Interscholastic League, the governing body for high school athletics in Texas, ruled that the gesture was a violation of the taunting rule and the Cardinals were stripped of their victory.
