Blayze Quigley

Sumner-Fredericksburg Senior Basketball

A three-year starting point guard, Quigley had a pair of strong games last week in Cougar wins over South Hardin and Waterloo Columbus. He was particularly strong against South Hardin where he had 20 points, 13 rebounds, seven assists and four steals in a 72-60 victory. I’m extremely proud of him with his effort and competitiveness,” Sumner-Fredericksburg coach Mike Quigley said. “Blayze always outworks the opponents on the court. For what he lacks in height, he makes up for with physicality and toughness.” An all-district defensive back, Blazye also runs track and plays baseball.
