Collyn Carter recently signed a letter of intent to play basketball at Welch College for the 2014-2015 school year. The 5’3” guard had a stellar high school career topped off by leading her team to the Alabama Christian Education Athletic Association, Division II championship game and being named tournament MVP.
During her senior year, the Decatur, Alabama, native had some very impressive statistics – averaging 14 points per game. She also led her team in assists, rebounds, and steals. For her career, she scored over 1,000 points.
“We are very excited to have Collyn join the Lady Flames for many reasons,” said Welch College coach Larry Bryan. “She is talented, athletic, energetic, and she loves to play the game. She is a person of character, a hard worker, a coach’s dream. Most high school players have to adjust to the shot clock, a faster-paced game and better competition at the college level and it won’t be any different for Collyn. What I like is her ability to tackle most any challenge. Her playing experience will help make the adjustment easier. We expect her to help us at both guard positions. I don’t think you can have too many players like Collyn. She is a welcome addition to the Flames’ program.”
Collyn will be a third generation student at Welch College, following her mother, Kelly (Carnes) Carter and grandmother, Linda (Kelly) Carnes.
