ANNOUNCED: Katelyn Tuohy Turns Pro, Signs With Adidas

It's official. Katelyn Tuohy, an NC State megastar who may go down as one of the greatest collegiate distance runners of all-time, has officially announced that she is turning pro. After signing an NIL deal with Adidas at the conclusion of the 2022 cross country season, the Wolfpack phenom will continue her partnership with the Three Stripe brand as a pro runner.

Katelyn Tuohy's resume is lengthy -- trying to detail every aspect of her collegiate career would be an exhausting task.

But when it comes to the main highlights, Tuohy will leave the NCAA with personal bests of 4:06 (1500), 4:24 (mile), 8:35 (3k) and 15:03 (5k). The latter three marks were all personal bests, the former two coming on the indoor oval and the latter mark coming during the spring months.

In total, Tuohy has secured four national titles -- two during indoor track, one during outdoor track and one during cross country season. She has also amassed a grand total of 10 All-American honors between all three seasons of competition.

However, maybe just as importantly, Tuohy has been the focal superstar of an NC State program that just capped three-straight national team title victories at the NCAA XC Championships, ultimately giving the Wolfpack an all-time dynasty.

Tuohy's departure seemingly signals the end of an era for an ultra-dominant NC State cross country program (which is not to be confused with the end of being nationally competitive). In addition to Tuohy, the veteran trio of Kelsey Chmiel, Sam Bush and Amaris Tyynismaa have all expired their cross country eligibility.

With Tuohy officially departing the NCAA, Florida superstar Parker Valby remains as the focal megastar of the NCAA distance running scene.
