Throwback Tuesday: Katelyn Tuohy Sets 3,200m National Record

Starting on Thursday, Katelyn Tuohy will toe the line at Mike A. Myers Stadium with a chance to defend her NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championship titles in the 1,500m and 5K.

Tuohy, a junior at NC State, has already earned four NCAA titles during the cross country, indoor and outdoor seasons in the 1,500m, 3K and 5K. She even holds collegiate records in the outdoor 5K and indoor mile, 1,500m, and 3K. 

But it wasn't so long ago when she was a star athlete at North Rockland High School. 

Let's take a look at her national high school record performance in the 3,200m from the Glenn D. Loucks Games in 2018 when she was a high school sophomore.

Tuohy crossed the finish line in 9:47.88, making her one of five girls in history to dip under 9:50 in this event. The previous record of 9:48.59 was set back 22 years prior by Kim Mortensen

Two years ago, Flower Mound's Natalie Cook made a run at the all-time mark at the 2022 UIL State Track and Field Championships, clocking a time of 9:48.25. 

Throughout Katelyn Tuohy's high school career, she was a three-time Gatorade Player Of The Year and a three-time NXN champion.
