Erin Marsh, a Buford graduate who is now a graduate student at Duke University, won the ACC heptathlon championship on Friday, May 13.

Marsh graduated from Buford in 2017. She competed in track and field, cross county and cheerleading.

Showing early signs of excellence, Marsh set school records in the 300-meter hurdles and in the 400- and 1600-meter relays and was named All-American in the 400-meter hurdles and heptathlon after placing fourth in both events at the USA Track and Field Junior Olympics in summer 2016.

Marsh secured her first outdoor title on Friday while also breaking her own record and earning 5,946 points in the event. She was also granted All-ACC First Team honors in addition to becoming the first Duke woman to win an ACC heptathlon title.

Her points total also shatters the previous Morris Williams Stadium record by 22 points and ranks second in the NCAA.
