Katelyn Tuohy’s 3000 earns her USATF Athlete of the Week

1/11/2018
 

Katelyn Tuohy (Stony Point, New York) ran the second-fastest high school indoor 3000 meters ever on January 8 at the Freedom Games to earn USATF Athlete of the Week.

 

Tuohy’s 9:05.26 was also the fastest ever in an all-high schooler race, and made her the fourth-fastest prep in history indoors and outdoors. The North Rockland High School sophomore won the Nike Cross Nationals in December. Full results from the Freedom Games can be found here.


Other notable performances:


Mario Mendoza — Mendoza won the men’s USATF 100K Trail Championship at Bandera, Texas, clocking 8:07:45 for a victory margin of almost 17 minutes.


Camille Herron — Herron was the women’s winner at the 100K Trail Championships, finishing in 9:56:02 to take gold by more than an hour.


Now in its 17th year, USATF’s Athlete of the Week program is designed to recognize outstanding performers at all levels of the sport. USATF names a new honoree each week and features the athlete on USATF.org. Selections are based on top performances and results from the previous week.


2018 Winners: January 4, Brian Herron; January 11, Katelyn Tuohy.
