Wisconsin volleyball lands Minnesota transfer, Carter Booth
MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Badger volleyball got quite the gift on Christmas Morning, former Minnesota middle blocker Carter Booth is headed to Madison.
The 6-foot-7 middle blocker from Denver, Colorado was ninth in the country in blocks-per-set this season, with 1.48.
Booth was an All-Big Ten First Team selection, AVCA North Region Freshman of the Year and earned the Best Defender Award at the Big Ten/Big 12 Challenge in August of 2022.
Booth will look to fill a void left behind by former Wisconsin middle Danielle Hart who graduated after her sixth season with the Badgers.
“We got to know Carter and her family when she was going through the recruiting process when she was younger and when she came and visited our camp,” said Wisconsin head volleyball coach Kelly Sheffield. “She had a great freshman season and continued to get stronger and better when a lot of players start wearing down at her age. When we saw that she was in the portal we immediately reached out to her and had great conversations and realized that it would be a great fit. Carter is a great competitor who is willing to work hard to reach her big dreams and goals.”
Booth will have three years of eligibility remaining.
