Kraft on the Teague's:
"I've coached many twins over my career. I always coach them as individuals, but here I'll talk about them together. Samantha and Sydney Teague are both Pirates to the core. I have a baby picture of them decked out in ECU Pirate Gear-classic Purple and Gold. Samantha Teague was hampered by a number of injury issues her senior year, but her previous years PR's show that she can excel at this level. She came on really strongly at the end of the year when she was feeling healthier, so I'm optimistic that she'll get a good summer of training before she gets here to ECU. Sydney Teague really showed tremendous development this year in both cross country and track. She set multiple PR's each season. Both twins were multi-sport stars at their high school (competing in cross country, track, and swimming) so focusing on running at the college level should allow them to focus on training at a new level and allow them to make some really wonderful gains."
