For the second year in a row, property at Shawnee Mission East high school was vandalized the night before the basketball game between SM East and SM South.

Students and staff at the school on Friday morning found that storage sheds adjacent to the football practice field had been spray painted with racial, political and sexual messages, including swastikas. Maintenance staff quickly began work covering the graffiti. Students reported that some cars had been hit with paintballs, as well.
