Sunlake twins double up in college

LAND O' LAKES - Courtney and Meghan Durbin have a special connection.

The 2012 Sunlake High graduates are twin sisters, but their bond is deeper than the fact they entered the world just 60 seconds apart.

The Durbins are linked by softball.

"A lot of people think that being siblings on the same team isn't good, and when we were younger and immature, we would get into arguments and fights all the time, but now we've grown together through softball," Courtney said. "We still have those twin moments when we have stupid fights, but it's better to have someone there who has your best interest at heart."

The twins have been teammates since age seven in the Land O' Lakes Little League, including being record setters with the Seahawks.

Courtney, an outfielder, hit .456 and stole 50 bases during her four seasons at Sunlake and ended as the sixth-year program's all-time leader in runs scored (129), RBIs (99), doubles (33) and triples (21).

Meghan batted .349 with 79 RBIs and 74 runs while playing second base and the outfield. She also has the program record with 221 strikeouts and 40 wins as a pitcher. Jami Finan, who coached Sunlake softball during the Durbins' junior and senior seasons, said the duo's work ethic always stood out.
