Spotlight on the Smookler Sisters

February 3, 2022

While Rachel and Bella Smookler are sisters, they are also best friends who love to spend time together. Car rides in the morning, watching movies on the weekends, and practicing together on the track and field team are just a few of the activities that they enjoy. They may be related, but they each have their own unique takes on things they do together: Rachel runs distance events on the track team, and Bella throws shot put.

What is your favorite dinner your mom makes?

“When she makes homemade barbecue ribs, that’s my favorite for sure with tater tots.”

What’s your favorite thing to do with your sister?

“I just like driving her to school in the morning because we don’t get to see each other a lot because of sports and stuff like that. But it’s nice to be able to talk to her and catch up in the morning.”

What made you decide to join the track team?

“Freshman year I decided to do cross country mainly because I was afraid to get cut from a sport, and I had done it in middle school. I liked it a lot, so then I kept going into track.”

What is your favorite track event?

“My favorite track event would probably be the mile or the two mile event.”

What is your favorite memory you have with your sister?

“In the spring or winter of last year we watched all the Marvel movies like every weekend which was fun.”

What’s your favorite car jam?

“‘All Too Well,’ ten-minute version. I don’t know if she enjoys jamming out to it as much as I do. I don’t think she minds listening to the three-minute version though.”

Do you spend a lot of time together?

“I mean, yeah, especially over the summer and stuff like that, but with school and stuff like that, our schedules tend to not line up because I’ll get home and she’s at volleyball and stuff like that. But other than that, yes.”

What is your favorite part about practice each day?

“My favorite part about track practice is running to the track with my friends and getting to talk to them about our days and singing Christmas songs”

How do you inspire each other?

“Bella is really cool, she’s really mature, I feel like, for her age. I can’t imagine that I was as mature as her when I was younger, just like how she balances all her sports and activities in school.”

What’s your favorite family event or vacation?

“Every year we go to Ocean City, Maryland, to the beach. That’s pretty much our annual trip, we get crabs and hang out.”
