Carter, an All-State and North-South golfer this fall, signed with Winthrop and coach Jodi Wendt on Tuesday. She joins an Eagles program that is undergoing a youth movement . Six of this season’s seven players are sophomores or freshmen, including former South Pointe standout Chandler Case.
“If I work hard and continue what I’m doing, I’ve definitely got a chance of making it,” said Carter, whose strong suit on the golf course is smashing the ball off the tee. “I can definitely make a push for it.”
Carter averaged 38 strokes per nine holes this season and 79 for 18-hole tournaments, a level she said she’s reached in the last year.
Carter is a scholar too. She has a 4.1 grade point average, takes International Baccalaureate classes, and is a member of the National Honor Society and Beta Club. She’ll major in something healthcare-related, and she’ll do it much closer to home than she ever imagined.
