School Has 24 Sets Of Twins Enrolled In Fifth Grade - Hope To Beat Guinness Record
WILMETTE, Ill. (AP) — Like a lot of kids, the two brothers from northern Illinois spent hours marveling at the weird and the wonderful in the Guinness Book of World Records — and wondering what they could do to get in it.
Their friends tried endless pogo stick jumps. One practiced in the shower for an attempt at the loudest burp.
Then, Luke and Ryan Novosel, 11-year-old twins from the Chicago suburb of Wilmette, began counting up all the other twins in their school directory and came to a startling discovery. Highcrest Middle School, it would seem, has the most sets of twins — two dozen of them — in a single grade.
“We were absolutely shocked,” said their mother, Nancy Fendley. And it wouldn’t just brush past the current record of 16. “It’s blowing it away,” she said.
With some help from mom and dad, the brothers submitted an application with Guinness earlier this year and after following up with birth certificates, photos and proof that all are enrolled at the school, they expect official recognition in several weeks.
