Paige and Molly Grant are true identical twins. I have watched the girls grow up in CYO sports. I was a teacher at St. Mary of the Valley (now Valley Catholic) when their mother was a student there. I know the family well and they are great people. The girls have been fun to watch through the years as they have been scrappers in basketball and competitors in track and field. They both have the heart of a winner. It touched my heart as Paige stepped up on the winners platform for the first time and collected her championship medal. Good job, Paige!
