Kerri Quinn excelled in basketball and softball at UMass Boston and was a four-year starter in both sports from 1989-1994. The two-year captain for softball batted .328 or better in three of her four campaigns with a freshman debut season that saw her hit .344 (21-61). She capped her career by leading the Beacons with a .397 (25-63) batting mark and finished with a career .339 (83-245) batting average to rank eighth in school history. Quinn led UMB in runs scored three times and owns the career mark with 80 runs scored, while her season total of 24 as a senior is the fourth-highest mark. The shortstop maintained a .432 career on-base percentage in 74 games and is prominent on the UMass Boston career ladder with 83 hits (fourth), 39 bases on balls (fifth), 97 total bases (seventh) and 33 runs batted in (10th). The 1995 UMB graduate was pretty good with the glove as well, ranking fourth in school annals with 191 career assists and 10th with 182 putouts. She was also one of the best three-point shooters in UMB basketball history, canning 133 treys for her career to rank third among Beacons' players and nailed a school-record eight trifectas at Rhode Island College on December 8, 1990. The guard knocked down 40 or more three-pointers in three different seasons and her streak of 14 games with at least one made three-pointer is the second-longest in school history. Quinn was a co-captain as a senior and sank 76.2% (80-105) of her free throws that year for the second-most proficient mark in school annals as part of a career percentage of .715 (178-249), which is the fourth-best all time at UMB. The Weymouth native finished her career with 963 points in 87 games to average 11.1 points per game for her career and place her seventh on the Beacons' all-time scoring list. Quinn could also distribute the basketball, leading the team in assists twice, while dishing out 211 career helpers to rank sixth at UMass Boston.
