Administrators at Prior Lake High School are looking for the culprits behind a vandalism incident late last week.

Vandals spray-painted gold and black words onto multiple facilities on the high school grounds overnight on Thursday. The words suggested support for Burnsville High School, Prior Lake’s opponent in a Friday night football game that was also Burnsville’s homecoming.

Administrators and teachers from both schools urged their students not to retaliate. PLHS Principal Dave Lund was careful not to point the finger of blame or jump to conclusions. Burnsville principal Dave Helke asked his students to take responsibility for their community and come forward with information.

Authorities say they have several leads but are still investigating.
