Rory Quiller ‘08 was a three-time All-American pole vaulter who became Binghamton’s first-ever Division I national champion when he seized the NCAA title during the 2008 indoor season. The Bearcat also competed at the Olympic Trials that same year, going out in 14th place in the preliminary competition. Quiller graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in psychology in 2007 and earned his MBA at BU in 2010. He was inducted into the BU Hall of Fame in 2013.
My father for over 40 years was a Division I track and field coach so … he thought that athletics in general offered a lot of educational value and taught a lot of good lessons. We were in sports, not necessarily track and field, but every sport you could imagine … Being at the track a lot, and given his profession, there was a natural attraction to kinda go that route. Obviously he had some expertise to lend himself to me and my brothers all pursuing track and field.
