Annabelle Schultz, a junior at Carolina Day School, has verbally committed to play college basketball for the Terriers of Wofford College. Schultz, a standout multi-sport athlete at Carolina Day, was an NCISAA All-State performer and was a Citizen-Times All-Western North Carolina first-team selection for the 2017-18 season.
In addition to these high honors, Annabelle was also a member of the Carolina’s Athletic Association (CAA) All-Conference team.
Schultz, a 5’9” multi-purpose player for the Wildcats, has been an instrumental part of Carolina Day’s recent North Carolina Independent School Athletic Association (NCISAA) State Championship efforts, but most importantly, she has been a strong contributor to the Carolina Day community.
Annabelle received numerous offers over this past summer, but the decision to commit to Wofford’s women’s basketball program was an easy one.
According to Schultz, “Just as college coaches have their checklist on what they are looking for in a student-athlete, so did I. Wofford fulfilled all my boxes. I fell in love with the feel of the campus and the people, from the students to the facility. Wofford is a lot like Carolina Day in a sense that it is very community and family oriented. It is a great academic school.
"Then there is the basketball piece of it all, and from day one I have had a connection and built a strong relationship with Coach Garrity and the entire coaching staff. They believe in me as a person and as a basketball player. It is also nice to know that my family will be able to watch me play at the next level. I know I am going to a school where I can make a difference both on and off the court.”
