Wilmette police reported May 19 that property damage nearing $10,000 occurred at Loyola's tennis court, a shed, the track and field area, the press box and the football field.

From the Wilmette Life:

Wilmette police reported May 19 that property damage at Loyola, 1100 Laramie Ave., is estimated at about $10,000 thanks to the vandalism.

Officials at Loyola called police to their west Wilmette campus shortly after 5:30 a.m. May 19, and told them that a security guard had discovered the damage. School representatives believed it had to have taken place after an athletic meet the day before.

The school employee found anti-Loyola obscenities sprayed across brick pillars outside the school tennis courts, then noticed someone had spray painted similar signs, as well as spelling out “New Trier,” in blue, black, green and red, across Loyola’s track and field area.

Further checking turned up more graffiti on a shed, and several phrases scrawled in paint on the press box wall, including obscene insults of two Loyola students on the school’s football and lacrosse teams.

Employees even found that Loyola’s football field had been defaced; someone had taken the time to spray the initials NT more than once across centre line’s Loyola Academy initials.
