After one year in charge of the Southwestern Community College women’s volleyball team, Casey Quiggle is departing the Spartans’ bench.

Quiggle, a southern California native, will be heading to northern Wyoming where he will be in charge of the Sheridan College Generals.

In his lone season in charge of the Spartans, Quiggle posted a 14-21 overall record with a 3-6 clip in ICCAC play.

Quiggle stepped in to replace Aleesha Cleaver, who took the William Penn head coaching position after the 2017-18 season.

The now former Spartan head coach will replace Jennifer Stadler at Sheridan College, as Stadler stepped down after eight seasons in charge to take over at Chadron State College in Chadron, Nebraska.

Last season Sheridan College, which competes in the Wyoming Community College Athletic Conference at the NJCAA Div. I level, went 13-15 overall.

Southwestern has already begun its coaching search to replace Quiggle, according to athletic director Doug North.

“Coach Quiggle submitted his letter of resignation to us earlier this month as he has accepted a coaching job a bit closer to home. We are thankful for Casey in leading our program for this past season,” said North. “While coaching changes are never easy, we are excited about the opportunities and challenges of finding the next great addition to Southwestern Athletics. The focus remains on students and ensuring a seamless transition for our next coach.”

The Spartans’ 2019 regular season campaign begins August 24.
