WILMINGTON, MA — WCTV play-by-play sports announcer Jim Boyle recently interviewed Wilmington High School’s new athletic director Mia Muzio.
Muzio addresses several of Boyle’s concerns about Wilmington athletics — unfair competitive disadvantage by having to player larger schools; fan attendance; fundraising; losing student athletes to other high schools, AAU and club sports; how to hire, evaluate and remove coaches; and the importance of marketing.
Muzio also discusses her background (she almost became a lawyer!), what sports she played and coached, her favorite memories as an athlete and coach, her favorite coach, her favorite Boston sports teams, her non-sports hobbies, and how COVID-19 affected her planning.
In terms of goals, Muzio hopes to create a leadership council and bring in leadership speakers to talk to student athletes; establish a mentoring program with older athletes paired with younger athletes; develop a Middle School athletics program; bring more Unified Sports opportunities to the district; launch a Boosters Council; utilize the SuperFan app to increase attendance at games; and start a season pass program.
