Two seasons ago, she became an All-Big West Conference First team selection outfielder and many times led the university in offensive categories such as hits, batting average, runs scored, on-base percentage, etc. 
“Ashley is the type of player and a special young lady that we are looking for. She has speed, athleticism and a tremendous attitude,” Rebellion Head Coach Rick Bertagnolli said. “The fact that she traveled from California for this tryout says a lot about her. She wants to win and contribute to the success of the team.”  
Carter also has experience playing with the California A’s, a competitive fastpitch softball travel team based out of Newport Beach California.
