The high school junior, Katelyn Tuohy
just 16 finished another undefeated season at Nike Cross Nationals and announced her intent to focus on qualifying for the 2020 US Olympic trials. Everything I do is impacted by my decision to want to make it to the Olympic trials. That’s definitely my big picture goal for the future.” She continued, “I think I’m more of a 5K runners because of my stride, but I also love the 3,000m and 1,500m. Unfortunately there’s no 3,000m at the trials so I think the 5K is my best shot right now.” The qualifying standard for the trials was 15:25:00 for the 5,000m in 2016. Tuohy is only 16-years-old but she will be 18 by the time 2020 rolls around. This is young for a runner to try and make an Olympic team, especially in a distance like the 5,000m, but not unheard of. Newly signed New Balance Athlete Sydney McLaughlin had a similarly stunning high school career and made the 2016 Olympic team at only 16-years-old, and turned 17 just before the games. (Thu 6) ⚡AMP

No recent race, at least on the high school level, went off script as much as Saturday’s Millrose Games girls high school mile. Katelyn Tuohy, the country’s top female high school runner and a decided race favorite, led early on, expanded her lead, but started yielding yardage with two laps to go before being passed by three runners. Tuohy, 15-year-old North Rockland sophomore, finished fourth in 4:47.10.
Gabrielle Wilkinson of Wynnewood, PA, who exploded during the last lap, won in a personal-best 4:42.94 before a stunned crowd of 5,500 at the Armory. Tuohy entered the race having run the fastest indoor girls mile this year - 4:43.62. (Sat 3) ⚡AMP
