MASON, Ohio -- Mason senior distance runner Ellie Brush verbally committed to Virginia Tech, where she will run track and cross country.
“We are so pumped for her,” Mason girls’ track and field coach Tony Affatato said Thursday morning. “It will be a great fit for her. The track and cross country program has done well. There are great academics and a beautiful campus.”
National Signing Day is Nov. 9.
Brush will be a four-hour drive from her sister, Erin, who runs for Johns Hopkins University in Maryland.
“Ellie really loved the girls on the team and felt at home when she visited and thought the coaches would take care of her and not over-train her, especially as a freshman,” Affatato said.
