SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Notre Dame Prep senior Carter Gray has committed to run and attend school at Trinity University in San Antonio.
“I think I am most excited about getting to join a new community and be able to compete at the next level with new experiences,” said Gray.
Gray has been a two-sport standout for the Saints, competing on the volleyball and track and field programs. She was an all-region selection at libero and helped NDP reach the 4A State Championship game, posting a 17-1 overall record.
“It means a lot,” said Gray of continuing her career. “Athletics has always been something I have participated in my life. To be able to continue makes me really excited to see what I am able to do.”
Gray, who had her junior season shut down on the track, is excited about competing again this year. She won the 400 meters in her opening meet of the season at the Hal Anders Invitational on Saturday.
“The goal for senior season is definitely making it to state,” said Gray. “It didn’t go so well my sophomore year, so I am looking forward to making an impact this year.”
Gray was a state qualifier as a sophomore, finishing 19th in the 400 meters in 1:04.83.
She is excited to join the Tiger program under coach Marcus Whitehead. He has coached 15 athletes to the NCAA Division III Championship and eight All-Americans in his nine-year tenure.
“It is a tight group, and they support each other,” said Gray about the Trinity program. “It is an individual sport, but I still get the sense of a team which I am looking forward to.”
Gray will study Business at Trinity.
She is the school’s nominee for the AIA Female Scholar Athlete Award and was the volleyball team’s Play Like a Champion (Spiritual/Character Award) winner. She has a 3.9 GPA (4.28 weighted) to rank third overall in her class.
Gray will participate in the NDP Commitment Celebration on April 14.
