Nevada Twins Share Valedictorian Title

Updated: Wednesday, June 4 2014, 10:37 AM CDT

Gabby and Maria Munoz-Robles of Reno, Nevada share everything. They participate in the same sports, the same extra-curricular activities, and now, they both received a 4.54 grade point average, making them both the valedictorians of Douglas High School this year. "We were shooting to be co-valedictorians. It came just down to this last semester, and we tied so we knew that it was going to happen," says Maria Munoz-Robles as Gabby laughs

The twins say a combination of competitiveness and camaraderie helped them reach their goal. "We usually split up our homework load sometimes, we cut it in half so she [Gabby] gets part of it and I get the other part of it," Maria says.

The sisters made a vow to stick together after graduation, both with hopes of attending the University of Notre Dame. But their plan was almost derailed when Maria received her acceptance letter via email, and Gabby did not. At first, anyway. "A few hours later I decided to check my, email again and this time I checked all of my email and I found my likely letter from Notre Dame in my spam mail and then we celebrated, Gabby says.

But the university will not allow them to live in the same dormitory, so for the first time in their lives, Gabby and Maria will live apart. "We first wanted to debate them on it, but then we realized they did have a point that we needed to be separated and each have our own separate group of friends, and try to like, grow up differently," Mary says. Gabby adds, "Be individuals."

After college, the twins plan to attend graduate school and eventually, hope to conduct cancer and arthritis research, together, of course.
