Sydney McLaughlin to turn pro

The freshman track phenom is going pro.

Sydney McLaughlin told FloTrack that Saturday was her last collegiate meet and she plans to go pro.

McLaughlin first possible meet as a pro will be at the USATF Outdoors Nationals at the end of June.

McLaughlin’s decisions to go pro after one year is no surprise. It was a real surprise for her to even attend college. She could have gone pro in high school.  I’m just glad she picked Kentucky for her one year of college.

    She is amazing, we were so lucky to have her wearing UK blue if only for one season. Good luck Sydney and thank you for choosing BBN!
