On Monday June 20th, Chicago Sky veteran guard Allie Quigley turns 30. Over her eight years in the WNBA, four with the Sky, Quigley has amassed an impressive résumé. Allie holds career averages of 7.1 points in just 16 minutes per game, and shown a steady improvement since she came into the league, winning consecutive WNBA’s Sixth Woman of the Year Awards and continuing to make pivotal contributions for Chicago thus far in the 2016 campaign.
Allie Quigley lives and breathes basketball, choosing to travel overseas during the offseason, instead of taking time off to recuperate from the physical toll of a WNBA season. But when she returns home to Chicago, she returns to the unwavering support of her family and close friends, who are entrenched in the Chicago community.
Locked into the 2016 WNBA season, Quigley is forgoing a huge birthday celebration, and instead choosing to travel to her hometown of Joliet, Illinois to grill out with her family and close friends. Quigley has always been very close to her family, primarily based out of the south side of Chicago, and tries to see them as often as possible. Quigley is one of the few players in this league that has the luxury of playing in her home town allowing her to see family and friends on a frequent basis. The Quigley family plans for a bigger, belated celebration when the season slows down, and her younger sister Sam returns from coaching the U17 USA women’s basketball team in Spain.
Allie Quigley may be turning 30, but she has no signs of slowing down. It’s clear that with her skills on the court and the support of family and friends, the best is yet to come.
