Carter is one of three freshman getting significant playing time for Carroll, an NAIA school in Helena, Mont.

“She’s very athletic, very smart,” Carroll coach Dave Thorvilson told the Independent Record of Helena. “At times she looks like a freshman, but at times she looks like a seasoned player. It’s nice to have depth at that position.”

Cross country

Cornell’s Tedder wins first collegiate race

The Battle Ground High School graduate led the way in a dual against Army, finishing the 5-mile race in 25 minutes, 22.3 seconds. The Big Red defeated the Cadets, 19-40.

The Big Red held out its top four runners for strategic reasons, according to the school website, and “relied on its younger up-and-coming stars to shoulder the load.”

Tedder probably felt like he was home in the Northwest for the race, which was run in rainy, windy, 55-degree conditions at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Course in Ithaca, N.Y.
