“Katelyn Tuohy started the season smashing course records on hallowed distance-running grounds across New York State. Her freshman year in 2016 showed that she was on track to become a future star, but by the time she got to Nike Cross Nationals in Oregon this past December, she was in a class of her own. At 15, Tuohy is already well on her way to becoming, perhaps, the greatest girls distance runner in U.S. history.”

The 5-foot-4 sophomore raced to the Nike Cross Nationals championship this past season, breaking the tape in a course-record time of 16:44.7. Tuohy also won the Class A individual state championship in a course-record 17:51.4, and finished first at the New York Federation Championships in 16:52.4. Undefeated on the season, she also beat a loaded field at the NXN New York Regional championships (17:01) in addition to winning the prestigious Manhattan Invitational.
Tuohy has maintained an A average in the classroom. She will begin her junior year of high school this fall.
Tuohy has volunteered locally on behalf of youth soccer and running programs, and the Rose Memorial Library.
