SPORTS HAVE ALWAYS BEENA PART OF SECOND BAPTIST SCHOOL'S STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING COACH NICK MASCIOLI'S LIFE.
Mascioli's father played college basketball, which helped lead him to the court ,but also to the soccer field and baseball diamond in high school. Growing up in thePhiladelphia area, Mascioli decided to stay close to home going on to play college baseball at Westchester University, 30 minutes west of Philadelphia, where he was a part of a national championship-winning team.
Along the way, Mascioli experienced a few injuries, which ended up spurring his interest in strength and conditioning and injury prevention."I had a contact injury in high school playing soccer. I rehabbed my knee, had a really good experience, and ended up being faster and stronger than ever coming off the injury," Mascioli said. "I reaggravated it in college my freshman year. At that time, I wondered if somebody who was training me in college knew what they were doing. Could this have been avoided? That spurred me on to pursue exercise science. "While at Westchester University, Mascioli interned at a semi-private baseball facility during his senior year.
