Running in his first indoor track race in almost two years (redshirted in 2015-16), Carter led the whole way. He also finished ninth in the 800m run with a mark of 2:03.94.

The CSU-Pueblo women's basketball team reached its highest ranking in program history, earning the fourth slot of the latest WBCA Poll.
