Cedarburg has a boys tennis team like any other high school athletic program.

However, one of the Bulldog's doubles team will have you seeing double.

Mike and Blake Baren have been causing double the trouble on the tennis court since seventh grade.

"We never even thought of doing singles. Our dad just right away told us that we're probably doing doubles cause I mean we're twins so," said Blake Baren, twin brother to Mike Baren.

So you won't be surprised to hear that the "twintuition," as they call it, is one of the main reasons behind their success.

"Yeah for sure, for sure. We defiantly know where each other are on the court like at all times basically. It defiantly helps because we know each other play style really well and that translates to our game," said Mike Baren, twin brother to Blake.

But what fuels that "twintuition" may have you questioning the power of a good snack.

"Definitely the beef jerky, a pack before every game. Get some fruit snacks in the system. Yeah, that always helps. Maybe even the occasional ritz crackers," said Mike and Blake.

Now seniors, Blake and Mike's time on the court is almost over. 

They'll prepare to embark on a new chapter at different colleges, but they'll always be twins, always brothers.

"It's special, and I wouldn't want to do it with anybody else," said Mike.
