Nick Munson, from Illinois Valley Community College, has committed to play tennis at Concordia University in the upcoming Fall 2017 season. Nick played at La Salle - Peru High School, in Illinois, for two years. Nick played third doubles as a junior before moving up to first doubles in his final year. He was team captain as a senior and earned the team's most improved player award.
In his first season at Illinois Valley Community College, Nick was runner-up at second doubles in the National Junior Collegiate Athletic Association Championship (Division III), and was a semi-finalist at fifth singles. The strong season earned him All American status from the JCAA. As a sophomore, Nick is playing second doubles and third singles for I.V.C.C.
When asked why he chose to attend Concordia in the fall, Nick said, "It gives me an opportunity to continue playing tennis, and the ability to develop a 1 on 1 relationship with my professors was appealing to me." Nick will receive his Associates Degree in Science from I.V.C.C. and will major in Biology at Concordia. His ambition is to become a doctor and help people with this medical knowledge and education.
Kirk Boettcher, head tennis coach at Concordia, likes Nick's success in the game of tennis and in the classroom, too. Boettcher said, "I think Nick's tennis experience at the junior college level will prepare him to play in the NAIA. He takes his education very seriously, and, as a student-athlete, I can see him transitioning well to Concordia next year. "
