BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
Some believe a couple of high school students took their school spirit too far when they showed up at a basketball game with handmade posters.
Pictures of the students holding the signs at a basketball game are circulating the Internet.
Parkview Baptist Basketball Coach, Don Green, said Friday night's game against Patterson High School was about what he expected.
"It was electric, very loud," Green said.
There were a couple of signs posted around the gym, meant to encourage Parkview Eagles to cheer for their team in the second round finals against the Patterson Lumberjacks.
But some believe a couple of students from Patterson High School took their school spirit a little too far by wearing T-shirts stating "I hate Parkview". Another student held a sign that read "Jesus loves you... unless you attend Parkview Baptist."
Coach Green said he and players from both teams were so focused on the game they didn't pay any attention to the signs in the stands.
"The conduct from the Patterson players was outstanding."
Now that he's seen the signs, he said they may have been a bit out of bounds. But Green doesn't believe the students meant any harm.
"I don't believe there was any intent or ill will, just going maybe just a step too far in trying to support the team,"
Green said, had the tables been turned, "We would be very upset by what we did because, again, I can't tell what's in someone else's mind or hearts. But I can certainly tell you what's in ours and that is not something we would have accepted from our student body."
Parkview beat Patterson, 59-42.
Kevin Thibodeaux, Assistant Superintendent of St. Mary Parish Schools, said Patterson High School had nothing to do with the posters the students brought to the game.
He added the two students in the photos have been disciplined.
