Years at Loras: 1975-1979
Sport: Swimming

Frank Quigley came to Loras from Libertyville, Illinois following in the footsteps of his father, Francis X. Quigley, Sr. ('52).
He brought more talent to Loras College's San Jose Pool that it had arguably ever seen before when he left the starting blocks from 1975-79. He had Mark Spitz's moustache, and, as he told The Lorian during his final season, "webbed feet".

Quigley made an immediate impact on the team, setting his first school record in the 200 Yard Backstroke in his first season with Loras. He added records in the 100 Yard Backstroke, the 400 Yard Medley Relay, and the 400 Yard Freestyle Relay. He also captained the squad in his final two years and earned team MVP honors in each of those seasons.

Most notable among Quigley's regular successes was his appearance in the NAIA National Swimming Meet in 1979. Quigley was the Duhawks' first swimmer to reach the national meet, where he competed in the 100 Yard Backstroke in Hunstville, Alabama.  

He also helped to found the Loras College Rugby Club and is a member of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity.

Upon graduating with degrees in Education and Political Science, he taught and coached in Cedar Rapids at Washington High School, as well as spending 18 years at Lake Forest High School north of Chicago. He was the Illinois Swim Coach of the Year in 1993.

Frank currently resides in Richmond, Virginia and works in commercial development. His two children, Ryan and Maddie, each attended Loras in the last five years.
