||Until Carl stepped into the starting lineup for the Panther basketball team as a freshman, no one of that tender age had started in a team sport at Wenatchee High since before World War I. As a four year starter, he set school career records with 1,273 points, 445 field goals, 343 free throws made, 503 assists and 220 steals. Carl led WHS to a first ever Big 9 basketball title and first state tournament appearance in 35 years. His pure shooting touch and pinpoint passing earned three "All-Big 9" first team berths as well as conference "Player of the Year" honors as a senior. Carl was selected to play in the "All-State" basketball game. He was also an integral part of the Panther soccer squad for two seasons.
At Lewis & Clark College, Carl was 'sixth man' as a freshman, then started as a sophomore. After taking his junior year off from basketball to study in Germany, he returned to the starting lineup as a senior. Each year Carl played for the Pioneers, they qualified to compete in the NAIA National Tournament.
