New York Sophomore Katelyn Tuohy Breaks State Meet Record In 1500M
On Saturday, all eyes were on North Rockland sophomore Ketelyn Tuohy as she stepped to the starting line of the 1500M run at the New York State Public High School Athletic Association championship. A day after setting a national record for her age and winning the 3000M run on Friday, Tuohy put on another spectacular performance on Saturday as she would go on to win the 1500M run in a time of 4:14.75 and 13 seconds ahead of the next runner. Tuohy's time would set a new state meet record and also help her accomplish her goal in which she told The Journal News/lohud earlier in the season that qualifying and winning both races is what she hoped to do. "I kind of just wanted a bigger challenge. I knew I was going to have to be really smart not only with how I raced, but I warm up and how I cool down because it was going to be a long weekend," Touhy told The Journal News/lohud on Saturday following her win.
