Nine Athletes Qualify to Represent NC State at NCAA Indoor Championships

RALEIGH – The NC State track and field program will be sending nine athletes to compete in four separate events at the 2023 NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships. Four individual female athletes, three individual male athletes and a relay team qualified for the meet and will travel to Albuquerque, NM to represent the Pack. The Championships will begin on Friday, February 11 and conclude the following day. 

Katelyn Tuohy, Sam Bush, and Kelsey Chmiel will perform for the Wolfpack in the women’s 3000m. Each of these athletes ranks in the top-10 nationally on the NCAA indoor qualifying list for the event. Tuohy set an NCAA record for the 3000m at the Millrose Games in New York last month, clocking in at 8:35.20 to claim the best time in the country and in school history. Bush (8:54.12) is ranked seventh, while Chmiel sits at 10th with a converted time of 8:54.67. These are the second and third best marks all-time at NC State.

In the women’s 5000m, Tuohy, Chmiel, and Sydney Seymour will be running for the Pack. Tuohy also ranks first in the country for this event with a time of 15:15.92, which stands as the school record. Chmiel sits at seventh with her time of 15:27.83 and Seymour is 12th in the country with a mark of 15:35.61, both of which are top-five marks in program history.

The grouping of Savannah Shaw, Timara Chapman, Bush, and Tuohy will be the Wolfpack representative in the women’s DMR. Their converted time of 10:48.55 ranks second-best in the nation and in school history. 

On the men’s side of things, Alex Lang is poised to compete in the 60m. Lang recently set a new personal best of 6.57 at the 2023 ACC Indoor Championships, a time that puts him at 10th in the country and second all-time at NC State.

Joshua Brockman and Cam Murray will be competing in the men’s 60m hurdles. Murray earned a school record for the event last month, recording a time of 7.62 at the Tiger Paw Invitational, which ranks fifth in the nation. Brockman boasts the second-best time in Wolfpack history and twelfth-best in the country, earning a mark of 7.69 at the Bob Pollock Invite earlier this season.
