FSHS grad involved in Seton Hill crash

FAIRMONT — If anyone has picked up a newspaper, clicked on a network website or turned on a television over the past few days, they’ve likely heard the story of the bus crash involving the Seton Hill women’s lacrosse team.

Two people died in the Saturday morning wreck along the Pennsylvania Turnpike, including the driver and the Griffins’ promising head coach.

The coach, 30-year-old Kristina Quigley, was six months pregnant. Her unborn son also was killed in the accident.

Quigley was in her second year as Seton Hill’s head coach, and also leaves behind a husband and an infant son.

She leaves behind another family as well — the 20 players she coached and helped mold as young women. Of that group, one remained hospitalized, but her condition has been upgraded to “good” as of Tuesday night.

One of the athletes is senior attacker Morgan Cain.

Cain is a 2009 graduate of Fairmont Senior High School and was a star with the Polar Bears, scoring 92 goals as a senior and leading the team to back-to-back state titles. And that run of success has continued ever since, as FSHS has won the past five WVSLA girls’ lacrosse crowns.

Her father is current Polar Bear head girls’ coach Jon Cain. From what we’ve heard, Morgan Cain was treated for minor injuries and released.

Please keep all involved in your thoughts.

oooooo

Mason Bailey’s last hurrah as a collegiate wrestler begins Thursday.

That when the East Fairmont state champ and current Navy standout starts his journey toward a national title at the 83th NCAA tournament in Des Moines, Iowa.

Bailey, 29-13 during his senior season at 184 pounds, nabbed an automatic bid to the NCAAs after placing second at the recent EIWA Championships.

His 29 victories are tied for the fifth most in school history within his weight class. If he wins another, he’ll become the latest Midshipmen to join the 30-win club and only the 29th ever at Navy to pull the feat.

In all, Bailey is 3-9 record against the field at 184. He’ll face Michigan State's John Rizqallah (23-9) in the opening round Thursday.

Sessions one through three will be available to watch at ESPN3.com, while latter-round matches will be televised on ESPNU with Saturday’s finals on ESPN.
