At St. Charles High School you don’t see many triplets, especially ones that are breaking records and excelling in different talents. Grace Basler, Rose Basler, and Matalyn Basler are all freshmen at SCHS. Usually people have a sibling who attends the same school, but having two others in the same grade must be a unique experience. 

“I really like my sisters being here if I ever need anything from them I can go to them,” Rose said. “ We don’t have any of the same classes, but we do take similar classes so we study together and help each other out.” 

When it comes to classes they are all freshmen. There are only so many different classes for freshmen to take, but high school schedules can switch up a lot of things including the classes they have together or don’t have. They still see each other around the building, however that might be strange compared to all the other years they have had school together. 

“It’s different from other school years. We would all be in the same class and do everything together, “ said Matalyn. 

Each of them do different sports and activities and even some similar ones. Matalyn does tennis and track, Grace does track and basketball, and Rose does band and writes stories.

“During our first meet I broke the high jump record,” said Grace. “I’m in the top eight of all time.”

Rose has focused her skills in music and writing.

“I play saxophone and I’ve been in band since fourth grade,” she said. “My music teacher really encouraged me and I’ve loved it ever since.” 

Their mom also works in the building as a counselor. Since she’s down in the office, it’s not always easy to see her throughout the day, but it is comforting that it’s an option.

“It’s nice having my mom in the building. You can always go there if you need it,” said Grace.

Matalyn also finds having her mom in the building positive.

“We all leave our practice stuff in her room, it’s great that we don’t have to use the lockers for our stuff,” she said.

I really like my sisters being here if I ever need anything from them I can go to them.

— Rose Basler
