Carter organized her first summer women’s fast pitch team, the North Missouri CTs (Carter’s Team), with the support of her late husband Warren in 1961. That began her coaching career, which lasted more than 40 years.
She has been inducted into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame, the Missouri Amateur Softball Association Softball Hall of Fame, and the NCMC Athletic Hall of Fame.
Carter also received the Spring Spirit Award at the Women’s Sports Award Celebration in Kansas City in 2007.

Carter is also a long-term member of the NCMC Foundation.
