Although water polo is not a team sport offered at Fairfield Prep, senior R.J. Quigley has achieved in the sport with the best in the nation, and in doing so has earned the opportunity to study and to continue his water polo career at the University of California at Davis following graduation.
Quigley began playing year round and competing at the national level prior to attending Fairfield Prep, and has been recruited to play at UC Davis, a program which finished its recent season ranked 13th in the nation.
As a goalie, his countless hours of practice and competitive play through the Greenwich Aquatics High School water polo team earned Quigley the respect of his coaches and teammates in being named captain of the team and awarded defensive MVP during his senior season.
Quigley competed in the USA Water Polo Junior Olympics for the past four summers, where his teams won silver (2013) and bronze (2011) medals in the tournaments’ Gold Division. Additionally, he was voted a USA Water Polo All American in 2011.
Quigley has embraced Prep’s call to serve in the community by committing his athletic talents to the service of others through the Greenwich YMCA and the Carver Community Center, where he has taught swimming and assisted with recreation and mentoring programs for children.
His athletic achievements during his Prep years have contributed both to his strong work ethic and to his future opportunities in the sport of water polo in his college years ahead at UC Davis.
