Tuohey, Wood named top academic-athletes


May 16, 1997|By Pat O'Malley | Pat O'Malley,SUN STAFF

The gracious looks on the faces of Vince Tuohey and Sarah Wood as they accepted $3,000 scholarships from The Sun Wednesday evening in Annapolis were priceless.

Gilman's Tuohey, who resides in Annapolis, and South River's Wood were named the winners of the 15th All-Anne Arundel County Academic-Athletic Team.

They were among the 10 boys and 10 girls who received plaques at the annual spring membership dinner of the Anne Arundel Trade Council/Chamber of Commerce for Anne Arundel County at the Annapolis Holiday Inn.

Tuohey makes two one-hour commutes every day from Annapolis to Gilman School in Baltimore, where he has competed in three sports -- football, wrestling and lacrosse -- and maintained a 4.0 grade-point average. He scored the highest on the SAT (1,550) of any on the team.

Tuohey, who will play football and wrestle at Harvard, is also extremely active at his school. And all eight colleges he applied to accepted him.

Wood is a 3.81 student with a 1,330 SAT score, captain of all three of her teams -- cross country, indoor and outdoor track -- and is involved in a number of school activities. She volunteers in several programs and is a group leader and instructor for numerous workshops and conferences from the county to the state levels.

Tuohey and Wood were two of an impeccable group of 20 student-athletes who, as Trade Council president Ed Ladd pointed out, "make you feel really good about our young people."
