Sisters both accepted, will go together

Julia Farris was driving home from softball practice when she got the news. 

Immediately, the 18-year-old texted her older sister Olivia: The pair had both been accepted to the United States Military Academy at West Point. 

“I had to pull over and call everyone I knew,” Julia said. 

For most of their lives, the Farris sisters have done everything together. Growing up, the two were so close they joked they should have been born twins. A year apart in school, they both played softball at Delaware Military Academy, and for the Virginia Glory travel team. 

And in the coming weeks, they’ll both be heading to West Point and playing together on the softball team. 

“We’ve been each other’s best friends our whole life,” Olivia said. “It’s really cool to go through the process with your best friend.”
