Katelyn Tuohy Does It Again, Sets New National Record For Outdoor Mile
After setting two national records earlier this year (3200M in a time of 9:51.29 and the indoor 5000M in a time of 15:37.12) and only a week after winning and setting a national record for her age in the 3000M and winning and setting a new state record in the 1500M (4:14.75) at the New York State Public High School Athletic Association championship, Katelyn Tuohy wowed fans once again as she set another new national record in the mile by a high school american girl at the New Balance Nationals Outdoor in Greensboro, North Carolina. Tuohy broke the previous record, set in 1982 by Polly Plummer who ran in a time of 4:35.24, by running in a time of 4:33..87. Following the race Tuohy told reporters, "I'm super happy. It's the perfect way for me to cap off my sophomore year," the North Rockland runner said. Touhy's splits were 67.24, 69.09, 69.29, and close to 68 for her final lap.
