A physiotherapy student from Toronto, ON, Glen-Carter finished the regular season leading U SPORTS and AUS in kills per set (4.72) and points per set (5.5). Her conference-topping 368 kills was the second-most in the country, as was her total number of attacks in the regular season (1030). The veteran player also recorded 35 aces, 245 digs and a .217 hitting efficiency.

Glen-Carter appeared in all 20 matches for the Tigers this season, helping to lead her team to a 17-3 record and a first place in the regular-season standings. In addition to being selected as the AUS MVP, she earns a place on the AUS first team all-star team today.

Glen-Carter is the 11th Dalhousie player to be named the AUS MVP, following Courtney Baker who took home the award in 2017-18, 2018-19 and 2019-20. She'll now look to become the third AUS student-athlete to be named national volleyball player of the year award, which Baker won in 2019-20.
