Hall of Fame Inductee - Becky Barrigar

As a three year starter on the Lady Devils basketball team, Becky Barrigar helped set a then school record of 19 victories in 1984. She was both a scorer and a floor leader; traits that would work to her advantage in other sports. Becky's tremendous ability on the softball diamond earned her a scholarship to Illinois State University where her name appears in the top 10 of 13 offensive categories in the school's history. In fact, as of 1995, Barrigar was the last Quincy High softball player to earn a scholarship to a NCAA Division I program. Becky's play in the field and at the plate were key ingredients in Illinois State setting school records for victories (39) in 1986, and topping that with 41 wins the following year. In her junior year, with Barrigar batting .310 with 30 RBIS, I.S.U. qualified for the National Invitational Championships. She followed that up her senior year by hitting .320 and driving home 24 runs as Illinois State earned a berth in the NCAA Tournament.
