Two young women have been named best couple at their Bronx high school. Seniors Vikky Cruz and Deoine Scott beat out two opposite-sex couples for the honor at Mott Haven Village Preparatory High School.

Cruz, who's 17, says she was scared at first to enter the contest because she wasn't sure how people would react. At the last minute, she scratched out "boy" and wrote in "girl" on the ballot. Supporters followed suit.

She and Scott, who's 18, got four times the number of votes as the other nominees.

The couple started dating when they were sophomores.
