Grieving team grateful

| Thursday, April 25, 2013, 8:55 p.m.

The Seton Hill University women's lacrosse team expresses our deepest gratitude to the many amazing people who have helped us through this time of tragic loss and injury. Words cannot adequately express how much we miss our coach, Kristie Quigley. She was an incredibly talented mentor who had only the highest expectations for us on and off the field; we will continue to make sure her expectations are always met.

There have been many angels disguised as ordinary people who helped us through these past weeks. We extend our sincere thanks to the first responders and travelers who helped us at the crash site; the hospital caregivers whose superb emergency medical care and skillful surgical techniques saved our limbs and our lives; our collegiate family across the country, who created and contributed to Play 4 Seton Hill; those who have worn crimson and gold in honor of our coach and displayed our jersey numbers on their arms; everyone who is contributing to Gavin Quigley's educational fund (gofundme.com/2bt9g4); the Seton Hill athletes who have shown us that we truly are 21 teams but one family; and to our late coach's immediate family for sharing her with us during the last year and a half — she is forever in our hearts.

For her, we will remain kia kaha (“forever strong”) and will always play in honor of her dedication to us and the sport we all love so dearly.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
