Carter, a Biochemistry major, has excelled in the classroom with a 4.0 cumulative grade point average. On the field, MC's speedy attacker paced the Scots to a 14-4-2 overall record. He helped the Scots earn a regular season Great South Athletic Conference title and their 7th GSAC Tournament crown. In 15 games played, Carter deposited two goals, one a game winner, and a pair of assists on the season.

During his career in the orange and garnet, Carter garnered numerous accolades. He was recognized on three occasions as a Great South Athletic All-Academic Team member.
