Ryan Quigley has picked up at Northeastern University where he left off with Taunton High baseball.
During his freshman year with the Huskies, Quigley posted a team-low 3.45 ERA while tying the Northeastern record for appearances in one season with 23.
Last Tuesday, the Taunton native was recognized for his efforts and was named to the Colonial Athletic Association All-Rookie team.
The hard-throwing former Tiger ace found a niche with the Huskies, serving primarily as their closer this season while picking up six saves. Overall, he struck out 32 hitters in 31 1/3 innings of work. Quigley held opponents to a .218 batting average against. That mark was the second lowest on the team.
Quigley helped the Huskies to a 24-22 record, resulting in their sixth straight winning season.
Northeastern also captured its first Beanpot Tournament title since 2002. The Huskies shut out Boston College, 2-0 in the championship game back on April 25 at Fenway.

Lyons go All-America
Four of seven Wheaton track and field athletes to attend the NCAA Division III Championship last week claimed All-America honors.
