Nevada co-valedictorian twins to attend Notre Dame

MINDEN, Nev. – 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.

The sisters both plan to attend Notre Dame in the fall and major in biomedical engineering.

The sisters told the Record-Courier of Gardnerville (http://bit.ly/RVcWa2 ) that they eventually want to attend graduate school and conduct cancer and arthritis research together.

Both 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.
