BEL AIR, Md. - This is the first time ABC2 News has ever awarded two Student Athletes of the Week and they’re twins.
Nominate a Student Athlete of the Week here .
Laura O’Mara and Julia O’Mara are a pair of competitive athletes from C. Milton Wright High School who are heading to the University of Pennsylvania after they graduate next year.
The two are year-round athletes, playing together on the school’s soccer and lacrosse teams and swimming together in the pool. They’ve broken county and state swimming records, although the two excel most at lacrosse.
The two push each other constantly to better themselves.
Off the field they both volunteer at the Kennedy Krieger Institute where they teach kids to play sports. During the summer, they serve as camp counselors for disadvantaged youth.
And they say they want to pursue careers in medicine, like their father who is a doctor.
If there is room for two on a podium built for one, then the O’Mara’s have found it. They are the Bel Air Honda Student Athletes of the Week.
