When searching for a college, two identical sisters were intrigued by the six-year Physical Therapy program at a small Catholic campus in a little town among the mountains of Pennsylvania.

Now sophomores, Monica and Anna Lohmann are thriving as PT students and Division 1 track sprinters at Saint Francis University. But, they are missing their best friend.

Most would think they are twins, but they are actually triplets.

Their triplet, Angela Lohmann, attends Mercyhurst University in Erie, Pennsylvania, and is an Interior Design major.

What makes these three sisters unique is the fact that Monica and Anna are identical, but the other person of their trio is fraternal.

For the first time in their lives, the Pittsburgh girls were separated. They found this to be one of the hardest parts about transitioning to college.

“We did everything together,” said Anna, when describing their childhood, “We celebrated our birthdays together.”

Despite missing their sister, Anna and Monica are fully involved and busy year-round as they travel for SFU Track and Field.

Having a unique situation of being sisters and teammates, Anna said, “We know each other’s warm-up routines and how to encourage each other if we are nervous.”

Practicing their Catholic faith has been very important for the girls. They are active members of CRU and the Pro-Life Club.

“I just like the people here,” said Monica, “everyone is so friendly.”
