Ashland is like “nowhere else on Earth” according to www.northland.edu. They have a population 8,130 people and an average annual inch of snowfall is 57 inches.
“I was looking for small schools that had meteorology and a place that I could live my life’s dream in baseball. I went up there this summer to try out for the baseball team, and I really connected with the coaching staff. After the tryouts, I signed my letter and committed,” said Carey about Northland.
Carey had a 1.000% batting average last year, and had a 1.000% fielding percentage from the field.
“I hope to make an impact at Northland baseball team as early as possible with a goal of winning the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference,” said Carey about his hopes for a role on the team.
Carey chose Northland because of their meteorology program. “When I was little I always used to be afraid of the weather and thunderstorms and especially tornados. But now that I have grown up I kind of like the weather and it interests me.”
“I also want to be involved in storm chasing, I will enjoy walking around the campus, and will be an avid supporter of Northland Athletics. Roll Jacks!” Best of luck to Alex Carey and his future endeavors at Northland College.
