Sister Carries Her Twin to the Finish Line
CARTERVILLE -- A display of compassion during Saturday's State Junior High Track Meet in Carterville got a lot of people cheering.
Spectator Lisa Levault Rapp took photos of twin sisters Claire and Chloe Gruenke. They are eighth graders at Wesclin Grade school.
During the 800 meter run, Chloe went down on the track with a strained muscle and was unable to get back on her feet. So Claire came to her aid, carrying her on her back all the way to the finish line where they both crossed together.
