PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) – Portland Police are investigating a case of vandalism at Deering High School Wednesday.
Overnight a person or persons cut up sections of a new windscreen that was put on the fencing around the tennis court. The damage is estimated to be about $2,500.
"I'm heartbroken, It makes me cry that it's gone. It was such a great addition to our tennis courts, the facility around us," said Assistant Athletic Director Gloria Miller.
She says this is not just a loss for the school's tennis players, but for all the people in the neighborhood who enjoy the game and use the courts.
The screen was put up this spring at a cost of $5,000 dollars to block the wind and enhance the tennis facilities here. More than half of it is damaged.
