An unconfirmed tornado ripped through several of Calallen High School’s athletic facilities Thursday night, causing widespread damage at both the football and baseball fields.

“It picked up the pole vault pit and threw it about 70 yards through a fence. Over at the baseball field the backstop is bent over. Those are 4-inch poles we’re talking about,” athletic director and football coach Phil Danaher said. “It couldn’t have just been the wind. You can tell by the trees. They’re all uprooted.”
