Geneva’s Abby Carter named Freshman of the Year

PEPPER PIKE-Geneva’s Abby Carter in Sunday was named the 2018 Ohio Varsity Girls Basketball Freshman of the Year.

Carter, who received the award during halftime of the 2018 Ohio Varsity Underclassmen Showcase at Ursuline College, averaged 13.8 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 2.6 steals per game for the Eagles. She shot 33.8-percent from the floor and 72-percent from the free throw line.

She also carries a 4.250 grade point average and plays volleyball and runs track at Geneva.

“Abby stepped onto our team knowing we would need her to be a key contributor,” said Geneva coach Nancy Barbo. “Twenty-five games later and Abby leads our team in threes made and FT-percentage. She is second in scoring, steals and assists. Abby not only helped us compete in every game but win 21 of them.”
