BERLIN CENTER, Ohio (WKBN) – Twins Ally and Linny Jones aren’t just succeeding in one spring sport, but two. Helping the Western Reserve track and softball teams to succeed over the weekend.

On Saturday, the two freshmen anchored the Blue Devils 4x110m relay team at the Fitch Optimist meet, setting a new event record of 52.38, breaking the previous mark of 52.47 set in 2014.

Also part of the relay team are Kayla Owen and Olivia Altiere who are both two-time regional qualifiers.

The relay team currently holds the second best time in school history.

Following their success on the track, the Jones twins swapped their track spikes for softball cleats and helped the Blue Devils top Mineral Ridge 13-12 in extra innings.
