Carrie brought a great concept of team with her to the MIT program. Her strong passing, defense and serving make her a strong contributor to the program. Carrie's never say die attitude on defense and her great enthusiasm on the court makes her a great asset to the team which was proven again in 2006 as she took over the role of Libero.
