For the parents of three sets of St. James twins and student-athletes, that won’t be a problem.
Ten St. James students signed athletic scholarships in a ceremony at the school on Friday, and six of those students are twins.
Soccer players Tiffany and Taylor Marsh signed with Coker College, wrestlers Codi and Derek Rothermel signed with Newberry College and Austin and Erin Brown signed their respective scholarships to wrestle at The Citadel and play softball at UNC Wilmington.
Other Sharks inking papers Friday were baseball players Preston Lane (Wingate) and Trey Merritt (Brunswick Community College) and soccer players Caitlin Kirby and Sarina Way (Coker).
Earlier this year, Carolina Forest saw twin sisters Whitney and Brittany Burgess signed to play college basketball at Brunswick Community College. No twins from the spring signing, but the Panthers did have three athletes commit earlier this week.
Carolina Forest’s Anthony Caroso signed to play golf at Charleston Southern, boys soccer player Xavier Vera inked with Lander University and girls track and field standout Jackie Brengel signed to stay close to home and run for Coastal Carolina.
