MileSplit Ohio learned about this development through Babusci's recent Twitter update:
Erica Babusci has competed in a number of events for Canal Winchester, but her key race is the 300m hurdles where she owns a PR of 43.49. Babusci qualified for the 2016 OHSAA State Track and Field Championship in the 300m hurdles event and she had a strong junior season in the 400m, as she collected two race wins and set a new PR with a result of 1:00.80.
MileSplit Ohio reached out to Erica for her reaction to this opportunity:
"I will be training for the 400m hurdles and hopefully a few other events. I am super excited to go to Pitt; it is my dream school and I can't wait to attend there! I am blessed to have this opportunity and I can't wait to see where Pitt takes me!"
