Cherry Creek’s Carter Booth named Gatorade Colorado volleyball player of the year – The Denver Post

Cherry Creek senior Carter Booth on Tuesday was named the Gatorade Colorado volleyball player of the year.

The 6-foot-7 middle blocker led the Bruins to the Class 5A title — their first state championship since 2008 and sixth overall — and a 26-2 record this past season.

“Carter puts up a wall that is hard for opposing hitters to get around,” Ralston Valley head coach Ashley Ahlman said in a news release. “Offensively, she’s a really smart player who sees the court well. She’s also a phenomenal leader for her team.”

On the court, she totaled 335 kills, 127 blocks, 70 digs, 35 service aces and a .453 hitting percentage.

The Minnesota-bound Booth holds a 3.47 grade-point average in the classroom.
