Volleyball Signs Britt Carlson for 2022

Nov 14, 2021

PULLMAN, Wash. – Adding to their stellar core of outsides, head coach Jen Greeny has announced the official signing of Britt Carlson (Woodbury, Minn.) to a National Letter of Intent during the early signing period for high school players. The 6-4 outside is the first signing for the Cougs for the 2022 season.
"Britt is physical, can put up a solid block, has a good arm, and can attack from both pins," said Greeny. "All of this is not only wanted, but needed at the Pac-12 level."
"She came to us late in the recruiting game. Britt and her father came on an official and we were all immediately comfortable around each other. We feel beyond fortunate to have Britt commit to us. We think she has a big upside and we can't wait to work with her every day."
A two-sport star East Ridge High School, Carlson has dominated the hardwood in both volleyball and basketball. In four seasons on the outside, Carlson has led her Raptors to four-consecutive Suburban East Conference championships as well as a section title in her just completed senior season. The section championship propelled East Ridge to the 4A state tournament that was played in St. Paul. An all-state honoree and the captain of her team, Carlson led the Raptors to a runner-up finish in the state earning all-tournament honors along the way. In the two biggest games, Carlson would come up with 27 kills on .500 hitting in the semifinal contest while adding a match-high 15 kills in the championship game.  On the year, Carlson would be named an East Metro Player of the Year finalist.
On the basketball court, Carlson is a two-time all-conference selection as she heads into her senior season. In the last two seasons, Carlson has led the Raptors to back-to-back section runner-up finishes. Academically she is a lettered member of the National Honor Society. At WSU she plans to study psychology as part of the sport science department.

Carlson comes from an athletic family as her father Marc played basketball at Iowa State while her mother, Sheri, played volleyball at St. Could State. Her sister, Brynn, currently plays volleyball at Missouri while her brother, Ben, is in his second season playing basketball at Wisconsin.
