Matina Kulusic commits to Pratt's track program

BROOKLYN -- Pratt Institute women's track program secured another student-athlete commitment, adding hurdler Matina Kulusic, a graduating senior from nearby Susan E. Wagner (NY) High School.

"I'm very excited to have Matina joining us in the fall," said head coach Ezra Kwong. "Matina is an extremely talented athlete. She's a 100m/400m hurdle specialist with experience in the jumps, throws, and middle distances. She's going to add a tremendous amount of depth to our track program, and I'm really looking forward to working with her!"

Kulusic began her career as distance runner before moving to the sprints and eventually the hurdles. Kulusic has posted career-best of 18.86 and 75 seconds in the 100 and 400 hurdles respectively.

While the hurdles may be her specialty, Kulusic is also an accomplished scorer in the pentathlon, having won the Borough Championships and qualifying for the city tournament.  

A three-year letter winner for the Falcon's, Kulisic was a member of the National Honor Society and recipient of the Alexander Medal by the Student Art League. She plans on majoring in fashion.
