Quadruple trouble: 3 girls and brother leading small Ohio high school to basketball glory

TOLEDO, Ohio - 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 boys' team wins its state semifinal game on Thursday.

Their mother says the quads have always been competitive, but this year the seniors have been pulling for one another to get to the state tournament.

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 a long time.
