Tuohy defended her title as the ACC Women’s Cross Country Scholar-Athlete of the Year after leading the Wolfpack to its third consecutive NCAA Women’s Cross Country Championship. The Stony Point, New York, native helped lead NC State to its eighth consecutive ACC Women’s Cross Country Championship and was recognized as the ACC Women’s Cross Country Performer of the Year.

At the Southeast Regional, Tuohy clocked in at 19:29.8, setting a new course record while winning her second-straight individual regional crown.
Majoring in Business Administration, Tuohy has been named to the ACC Academic Honor Roll and NC State Dean’s List on multiple occasions. The 2023 nod to the All-ACC Academic Team is the fourth occasion of career.
Mullarkey earned All-ACC, All-Region, and All-America honors after a stellar season for the Seminoles. The Leeds, England, native placed fourth in the 10k at the NCAA South Regional, clocking a 28:45.0, and helping Florida State to a second-place finish, which secured a team bid to the NCAA Men’s Cross Country Championship in Charlottesville.
