Emily will run in the 400 and 800 relays, while Erin will take part in the 1,600 relay.

After moving from Grapevine, Texas, last year, the sisters are excited for their first opportunity to run at state.

“It's nerve-wracking,” Erin said. “When I woke up (Thursday), it was the first thing I thought of — one more day 'til state. We're nervous, but it's a good nervous.”

While there isn't much crossover in their events, other than the 100 hurdles, you won't find much else that's different about the sisters.

“You'll find some twins that aren't that close, but it's like we're hip-to-hip,” Emily said. “We want to go to the same college. We take the same classes. We're really close.”

Now, they're ready for their chance to be state champions together. Santa Fe is one of three teams, along with Edmond Memorial and Jenks, that come into the meet as serious contenders for the 6A girls team title.

“If everyone brings their ‘A' game, and stays determined and focused, we believe we can win,” Erin said. “But no one can slack off. Everyone has to do their best for us to win.”
