Going to school with your sibling can be challenging, but imagine being on the same sports team as your twin brother.

Cole and Wyatt Chanda, seventh-grade twins and members of the junior high basketball team, have been going to Holy Trinity since fifth grade. Prior to HT, they attended Our Lady of Lourdes from preschool to fourth grade. Both brothers have been playing basketball since they were four years old.

“I like playing with my brother because we both know how to work with each other and what plays to do,” said Wyatt. “But a lot of the time we get mad at each other because he gets on my nerves since we are always around each other.”

Cole and Wyatt both play for the Police Athletic League (PAL), Cole entering his sixth season and Wyatt entering his fifth. They also played for the South Beach Basketball Association (SBBA) in Indialantic for six years.

“I’ve been playing with my brother all my life and our chemistry is really good,” said Cole.

Both brothers attend FIT and HT basketball camps over the summer every year. They also both made the Jr. High team coached by Deputy Marc Spencer.

“We argue a lot, but we always know what plays to do when we’re playing together,” said Cole.

Cole and Wyatt live near a park with a basketball court and go there to play six to seven times a week and have always been on the same team, so they are very used to playing together. Both agree that even though they fight, they have good chemistry on the court.

“Since we’ve been playing together for so long, over the years we’ve learned what to do to score and how to get out of a tough situation on the court,” said Wyatt.
