An upperclassmen rivalry like no other.

This year, the annual rocketball game was more competitive than usual after conflicts between the juniors and seniors.

On Monday, the juniors played the seniors in an intense rocketball game after school. The score was close and the juniors ended up taking the win in the last set. Some seniors felt the result of the game was unfair, and although they lost they still felt like they should be able to play the teachers during the football homecoming pep-rally.

Typically, every year the seniors beat the juniors in the rocketball game which results in seniors advancing and playing against the teachers. Since the juniors won 15-12 in the last set, they got to play the teachers. “I wasn’t mad about the seniors losing the game because the juniors won fair and square, but I was mad about them not letting us play the teachers since it’s our last year of playing rocketball. I think they should let us play them,” said senior Zach Hill.

Some juniors still have a strong opinion on what they think is right regarding playing the teachers. “I don’t think the seniors should get to play them because on the sign-up sheet it says that the winning team gets to play the teachers and we won,” said junior, Max Gauthier.

Since seniors were upset about the outcome of the rocketball game, a compromise was made. A few juniors went to secretary Jo Perkins, advisor of rocketball, on Wednesday in an effort to find a solution. “We proposed that since the seniors keep complaining and it’s their senior year we could try to play them in a big rematch and it would be a lot of fun and everyone would be involved,” said junior Trent Murphy.

At the annual homecoming assembly, the juniors first played the teachers. The juniors lost that game 25-19. The juniors then played the seniors in a rematch, in which the juniors won again, 33-27. “It felt really good to win against the seniors a second time because all we heard all week was how this time was going to be different. It was so fun because both classes were hyped and really loud,” said Murphy.
