(Crookston, Minn.)- University of Minnesota, Crookston head women’s softball coach Mitch Bakken announced today the signing of Carrie Carlson to a UMC letter of intent to play for the Golden Eagles in 2008-09.


Carlson is a 5’11, infielder/pitcher from Blackduck High School. She was named an All-Conference team member following her junior season.


“Carrie brings with her the knowledge of what it takes to compete at the Division II level. Her sister Kelly played at Bemidji State and her other sister Chris played here at UMC for me for two years and was a great player and leader,” says Bakken. “Carrie has been very ambitious in learning our workout and preparing herself for her senior season. Next year she will take reps at third and first base and also at pitcher. I think she has the potential to develop into a very solid player with Golden Eagle softball.”


Carlson plans to major in Wildlife Management at the University of Minnesota, Crookston. She is the daughter of Wendy and John Carlson of Hines, Minn.
