Bucyrus senior boys tennis player Mark Musick will take his academic prowess and athletic talents to Indiana Wesleyan University in the fall of 2015. The son of Earl and Debbie Musick, Mark made his decision official when he signed his Letter of Intent to become a Wildcat on the school's campus in mid-March.

Expected to be a 4-year letter winner, Redmen head tennis coach John Supon could not ask for a stronger senior leader in Musick.

"He has a plethora of practice and match experience," Supon said. "He is able to assist the younger players in what the expectations are to participate in the Bucyrus Tennis program."

Indiana Wesleyan was one of Musick's top two choices for college. A visit with a current senior at the university convinced Mark he needed to make his commitment to be a Wildcat.

"I met a senior at IWU whose second choice was my first choice," Musick said. "It was interesting to weigh the pros and cons of each of my choices with his insights. IWU has a great facility and I love their coach and their program."

Musick has found success on the court and in the classroom. He has maintained a 3.64 grade point average throughout high school. Mark has also been active in student organizations like Science Club, National Honor Society and DECA, just to name a few.

"Mark maintains a full academic and student activities schedule to prepare himself for college and his professional career," Supon said. "Mark is carrying on the Bucyrus tradition of being a leader off and on the court."

After college, Mark has aspirations to work professionally in the sports management or sports marketing area. In the past two years, 6 Indiana Wesleyan graduates have been hired to work at ESPN, a fact that made the Wildcats even more attractive for him.

"I'm going to major in Sports Management with a Marketing minor," Musick said. "I want to be an event coordinator for an arena to book concerts and sporting events. I would also like to do some marketing for a sports team. That's the goal right now and we'll see where it goes."
