Ohio quadruplets star for boys, girls hoops teams

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- Basketball-playing quadruplets are making history for their small school in northwest Ohio.

Last week, the three Recker sisters led Arlington High School to its first state championship in basketball. Now it's their brother's turn.

He'll get his chance to match his sisters if the Arlington's boys' team can win its state semifinal game on Thursday.

The quadruplets' mother says they've always been ultra-competitive, but this year they've been pulling for one another to get to the state tournament in Columbus.

Deidre Recker says she and her husband know that if the boys' team doesn't win this weekend, her family will be hearing about the girls' championship for the next 50 years at every family gathering.
