Crews cleaned up the fields and buildings at Louisa High School's athletic complex after vandals struck in the hours before a rivalry game on the football field.
Vandals had covered up the lion on the field that is symbolic of the Louisa Lions team. They also had spray painted graffiti. The acts of vandalism were first noticed Friday morning and had been removed by early Friday afternoon.
Louisa plays arch-rival Orange High School on Friday night and witnesses said some of the vandalism included the letters "OC", an apparent reference to Orange County.
This will be an unusually emotional game between the adjoining counties because it comes after an earthquake that closed Louisa High School and forced the Lions to cancel their first game of the season.
