Back on track, set to graduate and then shot dead

For The Baltimore Sun

The Vikings boys won the Class 3A state championship at Morgan State last month, the first outdoor track and field team title in school history.

Under Carter and coaches Leigh Langmead and Paul Ulrich, No. 3 Mount Hebron edged No. 4 Hereford, 58-55, at the meet. The Vikings had won the Howard County and East regional meets earlier in the spring.

Carter, the All-Metro Performer of the Year and Maryland Gatorade Player of the Year for girls track and field as a senior at Long Reach in 2000, helped the Mount Hebron boys come together this spring. They finished third at the Class 3A indoor track state title meet in the winter, five points behind Digital Harbor and one behind Hereford.

Carter took pride in how the Vikings bonded and worked hard to come through at the right times.

“They really meshed together as a team,” she said. “They were really one big unit, all friends across the board. That helped a lot.”
