SUMRALL, Miss. (AP) — Twin brothers in Mississippi are graduating in the top two spots of their high school class.

Jimmy Dilworth is the slightly older one, and he is valedictorian at Sumrall High School. Tommy Dilworth is salutatorian.

They tell WDAM-TV that they have always been competitive, and they believe that has pushed them toward success.

They are both in cross country, archery and track. They are both in the math honor society, Beta Club.

The only activity they don’t share is cheer. Tommy is on the cheer squad. Jimmy is not.

Graduation is May 25.
