Police are investigating vandalism to Fuquay-Varina High School’s football field and press box that occurred some time over Labor Day weekend.
The graffiti included a small “KKK” spray-painted on a sign near the field. Other images on the track as well as the doors and windows of the press box were more sexual in nature.
Wake County Public School System officials said they believe it happened late Saturday or early Sunday, said Lisa Luten, a WCPSS spokeswoman. The graffiti was discovered Sunday evening.
Luten said there was no major damage, and everything was cleaned up by Tuesday.

“It has been cleaned, and they filed a police report with the Fuquay-Varina Police Department,” Luten said Wednesday.
She said she hadn’t heard any developments about the investigation and isn’t aware of any suspects or potential motives.
The vandalism sparked sparked reactions on social media, particularly among the student body.
One student jokingly tweeted a thanks to the anonymous vandals for getting him out of gym class for a day, while the paint was cleaned up.
Some students said they wouldn’t put the graffiti past their own classmates. Others said it was probably someone from a rival high school who is jealous over the Bengals’ success on the gridiron.
The Bengals are 3-0 to start the season.
