Huntington University has announced that Huntington North High School senior Wes Carroll has committed to play baseball
at HU this fall. In 2009 the right-handed Carroll led the Viking baseball team with 5 wins and 2 saves. Carroll had a 3.26 ERA and led the team with 60 strikeouts in 58 innings of play.
“We are very pleased that Wes will be on campus in the fall,” says head baseball coach Mike Frame. “We think he has a chance to come in and help us right away.
As he gets stronger he will be a solid college pitcher. He is very committed to his
own development and his work ethic will fit right into what we want to accomplish
here at HU. He comes from a very strong high school program that understands the right way to do things. Wes is another outstanding addition to our program.”
