Brentwood Police investigating vandalism at Brentwood, Ravenwood
By Joe Williams, Sports Editor
Brentwood Police have taken the lead in investigation two incidents of vandalism at Williamson County high schools on the eve of a critical rivalry game.
Officials at Brentwood High School discovered red paint on the statue of a bear, representing the school’s “Bruin” mascot, and black spray point on the base of the statue, including obscenities, and the school’s scoreboard and track signage.
Ravenwood’s school colors are red, black, gold and white.
“We are estimating the damage at Brentwood to be in excess of $2,500,” said Director of Communications Carol Birdsong, “which makes it a felony.”
Vandals also struck at Ravenwood where light blue paint, one of Brentwood’s school colors, was used to paint, “BHS,” on and around the Raptor logo at the center of the field.
“Both principals are extremely disappointed with these events, and are assisting law enforcement officers in their investigation.”
Ravenwood hosts Brentwood in a key District 11-AAA football game tonight at 7 p.m. A win would lock up the title for the Raptors for the first time in several years while a win by Brentwood would help salvage a season that has turned around after a difficult start.
In addition, the two schools meet at Murphy Center on the campus of Middle Tennessee State University at 6 p.m. to determine the state champion in volleyball. The two schools met for the same title last year, with Ravenwood taking a third straight title in 2012.
