Let's clear the air right now: Frankie and Ronald Wright are not twins. They're not even brothers. They're cousins who just happen to be two of the most prominent athletes on the top-ranked Mervo track and field team. But that hasn't stopped the queries that seemingly follow the Wrights wherever they go. "Everybody says we look alike. Everybody thinks we're twins," Ronald Wright said. "It's cool. I grew up with him. It's like we're brothers." Indeed. For as long as Frankie and Ronald Wright have been alive, the two have been nearly inseparable as best friends, classmates and teammates.

"Mervo-lous comeback! That's how we want the headline to read," shouted Mervo's Jabari Bush as he and his teammates celebrated a final-event victory that gave them the title at yesterday's Mount St. Joseph Track and Field Invitational featuring three of the area's top four teams. The teams never met during indoor season, so yesterday's meet was an eagerly awaited but chilly event to determine bragging rights. In eighth place after the first four events, the third-ranked Mustangs poured on the speed to win three relays, including the final event, the 1,600 relay.
