Grace Mancini has had the unique opportunity at La Salle University to compete with her three younger sisters in track and cross-country, writes Joe Juliano for The Philadelphia Inquirer.

The four sisters are graduates of Cardinal O’Hara High School and hail from Media.

Grace, 23, has a master’s degree in cyber security. Sister Eleanor, a 21-year-old junior, is a computer science major.

Elizabeth, a junior, and Christine, a sophomore, are both majoring in nursing.

Grace recently made her third appearance at the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field East Preliminary in Jacksonville, Fla., this time accompanied by her sister Eleanor.

“The four of us have always been really close our whole lives,” she said. “We’ve always been best friends. We’ve always played together and hung out together.

“But throughout our years at La Salle of running together and being teammates, I think we’ve become even closer than normal. We train together every single day. Almost all of our runs we do together, every practice. We even race together a lot. So I think it’s really made the four of us even closer than we used to be, and we’ve loved every second of it.”
