Katelyn Tuohy Runs 9:05 3K, One Second Off Mary Cain's National Record


Nike Cross Nationals champion Katelyn Tuohy ran 9:05.26 for 3K today, the second-fastest indoor time in prep history behind only Mary Cain's 9:04.51 national record set in 2013. 

Tuohy won the event at the Ocean Breeze Freedom Games in New York. 

Her time converts to 9:45.34 for 3200m and 9:48.72 for two miles; the latter of which also would rank No. 2 all-time behind Cain, whose record is 9:38.68. 

The updated national high school top ten list for the indoor 3K is as follows:

TIME ATHLETE HOMETOWN YEAR
9:04.51 Mary Cain Bronxville, NY 2013
9:05.26 Katelyn Tuohy Thiells, NY 2018
