SEDRO-WOOLLEY, Wash. -- Sedro-Woolley police are trying to figure out who damaged a chain link fence, a SUV, and the football field at Sedro-Woolley High School.

Investigators believe the vandalism happened at approximately 2 A.M. Saturday, according to a post on the police department's Facebook page.

"Not very kind," said Meghan Benham, a senior at Sedro-Woolley High School.

Police believe someone used a pick-up truck to plow through a chain link fence near football field. The corner of a SUV that's owned by the school district was also damaged.

"I was really worried about the football field. That’s what was really stressing me out ‘cause the football field is kind of a big deal like especially with our Homecoming game coming up," Benham said.

An expert will be brought in to determine if any repairs to the football turf are needed, according to a comment the district posted on the Sedro-Woolley Police Department's Facebook page.

Police have tracked down the truck involved, but so far there haven’t been any arrests in the case, the chief of the Sedro-Woolley Police Department told KOMO News on Sunday evening.

Damages already total several thousand dollars.

"It makes me mad. It really does," said Yvette Bertram, who lives near the school. "There’s so much pride in the kids that go here. I can’t see them doin’ it to themselves."

A repair crew at the school Sunday night told KOMO News that the damaged fence will be fixed or replaced soon.
