PLAINS, NY —Katelyn Touchy of Rockland High School in New York stole the show at the Loucks Games with her 3200 victory that was a new national record, breaking a 22-year-old high school set by Kim Mortensen.

Sophomore Katelyn Touhy, running only against the clock, after hitting the mile in 4:45.95, ran four more laps, by herself, not only breaking the meet record at the Glenn D. Loucks Games (May 11, 2018), but the 22 year old National High School record held by Kim Mortenson (9:48.59, 1996, Thousand Oaks, CA).

Galen Rupp (Portland, Oregon) won the Prague Marathon and became the second-fastest U.S. man ever in the event to earn USATF Athlete of the Week.

Rupp, the bronze medalist at the 2016 Olympic Games, ran 2:06:07 to win by almost a minute over Sisay Lemma of Ethiopia, and he sliced more than three minutes off his previous lifetime best of 2:09:20, set in winning Chicago last year. His time ranks him behind only American record-holder Khalid Khannouchi, who ran 2:05:38 in 2002, on the U.S. all-time list. Rupp has never placed lower than third in any of the five marathons he has finished.
