Quigley, a 2004 JCA graduate, went on to star collegiately at DePaul and is currently in her eighth professional season, playing both in the WNBA for her hometown Chicago Sky and spending her winters overseas competing in the Euroleague. Quigley will play in Istanbul Turkey for Fenerbahce Sports Club during the 2015-2016 campaign, following the conclusion of the WNBA season.
JCA girls head coach Kenny Battle, a former star forward at the University of Illinois and in the NBA, will also be on hand. Battle, a first round draft pick by the Detroit Pistons in the 1989 NBA Draft (27th overall) played four seasons in the NBA and nine seasons overall professionally, which included stops in the CBA, IBA, and Argentina. Battle heads an Angels’ program that has gone 48-12 over the past two seasons with an IHSA Class 2A Runner-Up finish in 2014.
Joining Battle and Quigley providing camp instruction will be Allie’s sister Samantha Quigley, the head coach at the University of St. Francis. A former JCA and DePaul star on the hardwood, Quigley recently served as an assistant coach for the USA Basketball Women’s U16 Team that won a bronze medal at the 2015 FIBA Americas Championship in Puebla, Mexico. Quigley’s Saints squad went 17-15 in 2014-2015, capturing the CCAC South Division title with a 12-5 conference record.
The camp is designed with an emphasis on skill development in all facets of the game of basketball. Current players from JCA and USF will also assist in instruction. This is a wonderful atmosphere to learn, regardless of your experiences or skill level.
