Athletes of the Week: The Eagen twins

EUGENE, Ore. - The Marist High School girls basketball team is an anomaly.

The Spartans do not feature a single senior on their varsity roster.

So the team co-captains are juniors.

They have a lot in common, too: Claire and Lauren Eagen are identical twins.

“It took me a whole year to figure out which twin was which,” Head Coach Terry Harrison said. “It used to be, I would look at their shoes when they were freshmen.”

Now as juniors thrown into a leadership role, the Eagen sisters credit their competitive natures.

“I think the competition between us has made us better throughout our life,” Claire said.

The dynamic duo can also be found in the spring season on the tennis court.

Naturally, they’re doubles partners.
