We thank you for this day,
for these two teams,
For the chance to study,
To understand the world around us a little better,
For the health to be here,
For the thrill of a sporting event,
And for individuals leaning to play as a team.
Grant that we not take days like this for granted.
Give us the grace to play our best, to be a good sport,
Win or lose, and to honor You with our efforts.
Tim Boyle, Athletic Director, Oldenburg Academy of the Immaculate Conception Oldenburg, IN
