In the image, members of Woodstock High School team are pictured beaming and pointing at the doll - their symbol for 'girl power' - after attaching it to the cross at Marian Central Catholic High School.
The teenagers, dressed in white kits, were in good spirits having just trumped their rivals, Woodstock North, 57-48 inside the Landers Pavilion at Marian Central, which is the Class 3A regionals host.
However, within minutes of their photo appearing on social media on Thursday, it had sparked a backlash against them, with many deeming the image 'offensive' to their hosts' religious beliefs.

Go read the ridiculous response from the school. Okay things have gotten bad, but not to the point where these people can claim ignorance to this crime.
I believe this is the Diocese of Rockford.
That reminds me of stories from this area, I think La Crosse maybe, where public school kids would throw fish on the floor during basketball games against Catholic schools. Yes, I think my uncle told me that 40-50 years ago, that would happen when Aquinas played the other public high schools in the city.
