Alumna Amy Carter ’93 to be inducted into the Huntsville-Madison County Athletic Hall of Fame.
Randolph alumna Amy Carter ’93 is one of 12 new inductees to the Huntsville-Madison County Athletic Hall of Fame. She will be inducted at a banquet on April 10, 2017.
While at Randolph, Amy excelled in soccer, and played five other varsity sports: volleyball, cross-country, indoor track, tennis and basketball. At Randolph, she played forward on the boys varsity soccer team and became the first girl to play in the boys state tournament. She also scored a school-record 55 points against Tanner in basketball and was named to the All-State team.
A strong student and a National Merit Finalist, she received a full four-year scholarship to Emory, where she was a Division III four-year starter and midfielder in soccer (and a first-team All-American). She was an Academic All-American in both soccer and basketball, and the University’s all-time leader in steals and assists in basketball.
Amy won numerous awards at Emory. In 1996, she received All-Region and All-University Athletic Association honors. She was the recipient of the 1997 Russell and Ralph Bridges Award for the most outstanding all-around athlete at Emory, the 1997 NACDA Pre-season games postgraduate scholarship award winner, and chosen as a 1997 Umbro Select College West Squad All-Star. She was also a Woody Hayes National Scholar-Athlete Award winner in 1998. She graduated from Emory with a double major in biology and chemistry and went on to medical school at UAB. In 2004, she was inducted into the Emory Sports Hall of Fame.
Amy is a family and sports physician in private practice. She was a volunteer team physician for UAH varsity athletics from 2005-14.
Amy learned that she was a Huntsville-Madison Hall of Fame inductee in a surprise ceremony held at Randolph and orchestrated by her former coach, Sue Marshall. Her friend and former basketball teammate, Holley Britton ’90, was present as were close friend April McCutcheon, their parents; Head of School Jay Rainey; and Director of Athletics Blake Davenport.
“I was very fortunate to have attended Randolph,” Amy reflects. “I received an excellent education and was able to participate in multiple sports with the support of all my coaches and teammates. My connections with Randolph classmates, coaches, and teachers helped shape me as a person, prepared me for college and my future career, and left me with so many fun memories.”
Amy is the second Randolph alumnus to be inducted into the Huntsville-Madison County Athletic Hall of Fame. Tennis player and Florida Gators men’s tennis coach Bryan Shelton ’84 was inducted in 2006. Coach Marshall was inducted in 2014. Tickets to the awards banquet may be purchased through April McCutcheon
