Tonya Carter came to Florida State in 1997 following an outstanding high school career at Alexander High in Douglasville, Georgia that had established her as one of the nation's top prep sprinters. She left FSU four years later as one of the greatest sprinters in FSU and collegiate track history.

As a senior in 2000, Carter won the ACC indoor 60m with an FSU and conference record time of 7.15 that was the second fastest time ever run by a collegian in the event. She went on to with the 60m indoor NCAA Championship just a few weeks later making her the first FSU woman, in 15 years, to win an individual NCAA Championship. At the time, her individual national championship was just the sixth in the history of Seminole women's track.

Carter finished her career as a three-time All-American earning the honor in the 60 and 100-meters in 2000 and the 60m as a junior in 1999, a 10-time All-ACC performer and in 2000 the USTCA Southeast Region Athlete of the year. She still holds the ACC record for the 100m outdoor with a time of 11.31 set in 2000. She helped her FSU team win its first-ever ACC Women's Team Outdoor Championship in 2000 and was an outstanding student as well earning ACC Academic Honor Roll distinction.
