Theyre sisters, co-valedictorians and twins
Lexile

Identical twin sisters have achieved an identical distinction at a northern Nevada high school: They're co-valedictorians.

Gabby and Maria Munoz-Robles received the honor by each racking up 4.54 grade point averages at Douglas High School in Minden, about 40 miles south of Reno.

If she got the A, its like I got the A, too, Maria told the Record-Courier newspaper. A lot of people want us to be separate, but we enjoy it. When we give each other hugs, I feel like Im hugging myself.

The sisters both plan to attend Notre Dame in the fall and major in biomedical engineering. But the university is not allowing them to live in the same dormitory.

I told them I was OK with it," Maria said. "But we share everything from straighteners to clothes. So now we have to get our own stuff.

The sisters say that they eventually want to attend graduate school and conduct cancer and arthritis research together.

Both sisters have been involved in track, cross country and band at Douglas High.

It's the first time in the school's history that twins have been co-valedictorians.

Critical thinking challenge: Why hasnt this happened before at Douglas High?

    i think its really neat that two identical twins have the same identical skill. its neat because it shows how close the sisters are and now that they know this it probably brought them even closer together. it would be nice to have a twin like that who knew the same stuff as me.

    This article is about twin sisters that do everything together. Things they have done together is become co-validictorians, track, cross country, and also band. This is the first time that twins have ever been co-validictorians at the school Douglas High. Their names are Maria and Gabby Munoz-Robles. the other thing is if one of them got an A then the other one got an A. I think that this is a funny situation. I also think that they are very alike which is kind of annoying.

    This article is about two twins named Maria and Gabby Munoz-Robles who were co-valedictorians from a Nevada High school! They both were valedictorians, did cross country, band, and track, and shared all of the same interests. These two are attending the same college but aren't allowed to live in the same dorm. Maria and Gabby are so alike they feel like each other all the time!

    How is it possible for them to be so alike? They are so smart and are going to go to Notre Dame.

    Identical twin sisters both got the same grades in their high school year. They are co-valedictorians and got a GPA of 4.56 at Douglas High School in Minden which is about 40 moles south of Reno, Nevada. Both of the sisters are planning to attend the college of Notre Dame but they can't live in the same dorm room. They also both did track, cross country, and band at Douglas High. It is the first time in the school's history that twins were ever co-valedictorians. I think that this is a very interesting because eI am a twin myself and that I hope that we both get to be co-valedictorians for Mira Costa High school. I am also wondering why they want to got to the same college because eI would not want and most likely will not.

    This is a extremely rare thing. Not only are they twins but they're involved in the same things. Also they're co valedictorians which is also rare, thus this doesn't occur a lot.

    i think its cool how both sisiters achieve things together thats so nice . but what i dont understand is why cant they live in the same dorm ? if they get good grades and are good students what does it matter that they do everything together .?
