Double Trouble for Dunbar Golf Opponents

scholar-atlete-twins• School: Dunbar High
• Grade: 12 • Sports: Golf
• Academics: Both have 4.675 GPAs and are on course to take seven A.P. classes. Rebecca scored 34 on the ACT, Rachel 31.
• Parents: Marian & Joe

Go ahead. I dare you to tell the difference between the resumes of identical twins Rachel and Rebecca Fine of Dunbar High, who are the epitome of equality.
Consider the following stats for the 17-year-old golfers and star students.
— Grades: Straight A students (never got a B) with identical 4.675 GPAs.
— AP classes: On course to take seven by graduation.
— Extra-curriculars: Members of the National Honor Society, National French Honor Society, the Beta Club and French Club.
— Hobbies: Piano.
— Volunteering: Humane society and an adult day program in Garrard County.
— Academic Awards: Shared chemistry, biology and computer awards and often are first and second in math, French and other subjects.
— All-State Academic honors.
— 5-foot-2, about 100 pounds with straight dark hair. Similar, even-keel personalities.
But there are differences, however minor.
Rebecca, the younger by eight minutes, wears glasses and scored 34 on the ACT. Rachel scored 31.
And Rachel had the better junior season in golf.
Starters since the seventh grade, the sisters were key members of the Dunbar team that won the Regional championship and all seven regular season tournaments the Bulldogs entered. Dunbar placed seventh in the State tournament.
Rachel won the Lexington City title, shooting a career best 71. Rachel finished second in the Regional tournament with a 73.
Rebecca’s best round was a 77, good for fifth in the Boyle County tournament.
But when it came to naming their personal highlights for the season, both cited team accomplishments.
“When we won the Regional, we achieved our goal and celebrated as a team. That felt really good,” Rachel said.
Said Rebecca: “At the team banquet we got together again and we were one big family.”
Spouting similar sentiments is typical, according to their parents Marian and Joe, who describe their daughters as hard-working and driven.
“They are perfectionists who study together and encourage each other,” Marian said. “They push themselves and put in the work to be their best.”
Oh, there is one other difference. Of golf’s top two professionals, Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth, who’s cuter? “Rory,” said Rebecca. “Jordan,” said Rachel.
