BILLINGS — Quinn (Peoples) Carter clearly made an impression in her career at MSU-Billings.
The school unveiled its Yellowjackets Women’s Basketball All-Decade Team this week, and the Butte Central graduate made the team as a reserve player.
Carter will go down as one of the best shooters in the history of the Billings school. While playing at MSUB from 2011 through 2015, Carter sank 236 3-pointers. That ranks No. 2 on the school’s all-time list. She scored 1,101 points in 118 games and started on the Yellowjackets’ NCAA Division II regional runner-up team during her junior season.
Before that, Carter helped lead Butte Central to the Class A State basketball title in 2011.
She averaged 17.4 points per game during that championship season. Carter, who earned first-team All-State honors in 2010 and 2011, finished her Butte Central Career with 1,224 points. That is second only to Butte Sports Hall of Famer Kellie Johnson’s 1,530 on BC’s all-time list.
Her 131 career 3-pointers rank No. 1 in BC history.
In 2016, Carter served as an assistant coach on BC’s 2016 state championship team. She still coaches on the Maroon staff under head coach Meg Murphy.
Carter, a special education teacher at Whittier Elementary School in Butte, married former Montana Tech football player Kyle Carter in July. She also owns and operates a photography business.
