Vandal tears up Stonington High School soccer field named for 9/11 victim Josh Piver

A vandal has driven repeatedly over the Josh Piver Memorial soccer field at Stonington High School, causing damage such as to render the field unusable, reports Joe Wojtas in The Day. The carefully tended, recently renovated field now has large ruts and chunks of sod have been displaced. The plaque with the field’s name was not damaged during the crime.

The field’s name honors Josh Piver, 23, who once played goalie for the school. He was killed during the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, while working for Cantor Fitzgerald atop the North Tower. Piver graduated from Stonington HS in 1996.

Piver’s sister Erica was quoted as saying, “Do they have nothing better to do than tear up a soccer field that’s used by kids and dedicated to a victim of 9/11?”

Police are investigating. Please call 860-599-4411 if you have information on the vandalism.
