Scott Carter Has Elevated the BW Program Into the Elite
Scott Carter has re-established the Baldwin Wallace University volleyball program as one of the finest in NCAA Division III. Each year, his team's goals are to win the prestigious Ohio Athletic Conference title and return to the NCAA Division III National Tournament.
In the past four years, Carter and his coaching staff have produced 100 victories, a 100-24 record and an .806 winning perecentage. The wins have increased from 23 to 24 to 26 to a 27-5 overall record a year ago that included a 3-0 shutout win versus the eventual OAC champion as well as three invitational titles.
How Carter and His Staff Achieve Excellence On and Off the Court
The program is continually striving for excellence by stressing the development of the complete volleyball athlete capable of executing the basic skills to the highest degree. The goal is to develop each young woman into the best person she can be both academically and athletically.
To achieve excellence, the BW volleyball athlete is asked to be self-disciplined and unselfishly dedicated in order to place the goals of the team ahead of any personal recognition. However, the ultimate objective is the growth and maturity of each individual student-athlete through the medium of sport.
The 2018-2019 Season of Continued Success
Not only did Carter's team win 27 matches in 2018-2019, four of its players earned All-OAC honors and nine more earned prestigious Academic All-OAC accolades, including three who were nominees for CoSIDA Google Cloud Academic All-District 7 Academic All-America honors.
