For the second time this season, Tuelle earned a Big South Freshman of the Year selection this week.

This past Tuesday, Tuelle showed off some heroics. With the Camels trailing Charleston South, 51-49, Tuelle, like she did many times for the Lady Bulldogs, hit a clutch 3-pointer with just 25 seconds of the game to lift Campbell University past Charleston 52-51.
