Alumni Spotlight- Nick Buonocore ’01

We are pleased to introduce you to our very own Battling Bishop Nick Buonocore. Nick graduated in 2001 with a Bachelor's Degree in History. While attending Wesleyan, Nick had a successful career playing for the Battling Bishops baseball team. He led the 1999 National Championship Team with a regular season batting average of .385. During his baseball career, Nick played in two consecutive NCAA World Series games in 1998 and 1999. He and his fellow Battling Bishops went on to win two conference titles together. Due to his athletic accomplishments, he was selected as a two-time All-Conference team member and an All-South Region team member.

After graduation, Nick played professional baseball in the Italian Baseball League (IBL) for the "Cus Parma Dodgers.” He also spent time playing for the Italian National Team. After retiring from baseball, Nick moved to New York City, where he worked on Wall Street for over ten years.

Today he has a successful career as the District Sales Manager for the Mutual of Omaha Company. Nick, his wife Amy and their 5 children Avery, Tyler, Morgan, Rocco, and his newborn son, Mark live in Wilmington, NC. We can’t wait to see these Bishop Babies play for Wesleyan someday!

Your Bishop family is proud of you Nick! We look forward to seeing you all at Homecoming! #ncwcAlumni #BishopFamily
