Beatty’s Sports Teams Up with Prayer Matters
Beatty’s Sports in Louisville has teamed up with Prayer Matters to help produce a Leopard themed version of West Branch’s “Prayer Matters” shirts to continue the movement.
Prayer Matters Movement at West Branch
Much like Louisville use to, West Branch Varsity Athletic Events have traditionally held a prayer before every game for over 40 years. That tradition was halted on January 18 when the school district received a “cease and desist” letter from the outside Freedom From Religion Foundation based in Madison, Wisconsin.
The letter references prayer before the Canton South Wildcats at West Branch Warriors Boys Varsity Basketball game on January 5. The group threatened legal council on the school district, prayer was stopped on January 18 forward, and on January 29 the school district superintendent sent out an email informing parents.
In response to this, Prayer Matters was formed by students and parents of West Branch High School. Prayer Matters is a non-profit organization supporting and promoting spiritual growth and accessibility in public arenas. All proceeds will go to funding this mission.
West Branch at Louisville Boys Basketball Game Friday
The Leopards will clash with the Warriors on Friday, February 16 when Louisville looks to clinch the Boys Basketball NBC Title outright. While the boys battle it out on the court, fans from both sides can unite under one banner to honor the movement by wearing their “Prayer Matters” shirts to defend . The two teams will face off again on Friday, February 23 at West Branch. This unification could be a great way to end a great rivalry and a classy way for Louisville to go out of the Northeastern Buckeye Conference.
