For the Senerius twins, playing sports as a duo became such an unfair advantage, from time to time, they needed to be separated.

"We won the championship every single year together so one year they had us separate and it ended my my team winning and his team getting second," Clay said of their time apart during youth soccer.

"It was like triple overtime," Devin quickly stated.

Devin and Clay have been competing with and against each other their entire lives but when it comes to that twin factor and that whole thing about completing each other's sentences, yeah, that twin thing, it's a real connection. On the field of play, these two certainly have made a name for themselves, throughout their athletic careers.

"It's just like an unspoken thing where it's like an automatic switch between us," Clay said.

"A lot of times we don't even have to draw up a play, just naturally knowing where the other is going so they make things easy from time to time," Lakers head basketball coach Paul Robak added.

"They work together very well. In football he knows where he is and basketball is the same thing," freshman Noah Robak said. "In football Clay would drop back and Devin doesn't even look open but he'd throw it to him and he'd go up and get it."

"You can definitely notice it in basketball but I think in football, it was even more clear, they definitely had a special connection on the field and you'll see flashes of it sometimes in basketball for sure, it's really awesome to get to play with them," fellow senior Andrew Kline.

The dynamic duo is helping a stellar Our Lady of the Lake team make state history, if they get to the championship game, they'd be the first school to get to both the football and basketball final game in the same season, since Country Day did it in 1997. Helping cement their sports legacy.

"We don't just want to be that team that doesn't get remembered and we just want to make a name for ourselves," Devin added.
