Can you say déjà vu?

The seniors won again. They defeated the juniors in the annual Powderpuff game on Sunday, Sept. 6.

The only thing different this time around was the score. In fact, the seniors broke the scoring record in their lopsided 60-6 win.

The seniors were led by quarterback Makenzie Volpatti, who completed three touchdown passes.

She also ran for a touchdown that was capped off by an end zone celebration that would even impress JuJu Smith-Schuster.

Running back Maria Cerro scored a total of four touchdowns, including a kickoff return for 65 yards.

Running back Lexie Wolber scored two touchdowns and made six PATs.

Cerro, Volpatti, and Wolber had a combined seven touchdowns.

“It was definitely having a QB like Volpatti who got the ball to the running backs. We were just faster than the defense and our offensive line was really good,”Cerro said, when asked what contributed to the win.

“It was our coach’s last year coaching Powderpuff, so we had to go big or go home,” Volpatti said.

When asked what advice do you have for anyone considering playing Powderpuff in the future, Cerro said, “It was a super fun game, and I hope more people come out and play.”

“[It’s] definitely the most memorable thing in high school. It’s a chance to make new friends, “said Volpatti.

Fans will have to wait a year to find out if the seniors will win again, or if the juniors will shock the world and win, something that hasn’t been done since 2008 when the juniors won 27-6.
