2008 Hall of Honor

Hall of Honor Years 


Hall of Honor YearsAmanda Urish has enjoyed a 20-year relationship with the Buccaneer Women’s Soccer program, and doesn’t look to be slowing down any time soon.  A four-time All-Midwest Conference pick during her playing career at Beloit, she has also served the program as an assistant coach, co-head coach and head coach, not to mention as the team’s official photographer.  From her time at nearby Hononegah High School, where she played for three years on the school’s boys team before earning All-State honors as a senior for the first girls soccer team, Urish was dedicated to working hard and achieving success.  Her four seasons with the Buccaneers culminated in her senior season as she led the squad into the MWC Championship match and finished her career as the program’s all-time leading scorer.  She went from her playing days right into coaching and returned to Beloit as an assistant coach in 1995.  She was named co-head coach in 1997 with Kristi Straub and the two earned MWC Co-Coach of the Year honors in 1999.  Urish stepped away from the program after the 1999 season to raise her young family but returned as the assistant coach to former teammate Liz Bartley in 2006.  Urish is a self-employed graphic designer and photographer who has collaborated on numerous Beloit College Athletic projects.  She and her husband Jon, who works in the Admissions office at Beloit, have three children and reside in Beloit.

Hall of Honor YearsWhen Judy Logback decided to come to Beloit College, her main goal was to pursue a major in Biology, make a difference in the way the planet was being taken care of and, if there was time, play Volleyball.  Four years later, her academic goals were realized and are still evolving.  During her athletic career, she forged a resume that ranked her with some of the best female athletes in Beloit College history.  On the Buccaneer Volleyball team, she established herself as a nearly unstoppable force in the middle, finishing her career with 537 kills and 306 total blocks, including 181 solo blocks, which still ranks third all-time.  All in just two seasons.  In addition to Volleyball, Logback went out for the Track squad where she won the Midwest Conference Outdoor High Jump crown as a senior while also setting the school record in the Heptathlon with 4,347 points, a record that still stands.  As for her pursuit of making a difference on the planet, Logback can claim success.  In 1997 she founded the Kallari Foundation in Ecuador. Recently Logback received a fellowship from the Moore Foundation, and is pursuing a Master’s in Forestry and Business Administration at Yale University.  Upon completion of her studies, the fellowship requires Logback to return to work in Amazon conservation, where she is expected to create sustainable economic development alternatives to logging and extractive industries.  It’s clear whether she is on the court, in the classroom, or in the rain forest, Judy Logback is a champion of Beloit, and a champion for the planet.

Hall of Honor YearsErik Quamme had always worked hard at Basketball.  At Beloit College, he was committed to working even harder to reach his goals as a Buccaneer.  Four years after first stepping on the Flood Arena court, Quamme had cemented his status as one of the best basketball players to ever play for the Bucs.  A three-time All-Midwest Conference selection, including earning MWC North Division Player of the Year honors as a junior, and two-time team MVP, Quamme still ranks as the number three scorer in Beloit history with 1,491 points.  A main cog in the Conference Championships team in 1993 and 1995, Quamme scored a good deal of his points from behind the three-point arc, where he made a Beloit career-best 231.  As a junior, in addition to his Player of the Year honors, he became the first junior in Head Coach Bill Knapton’s 38 seasons to reach 1,000 career points.  Always humble, as he approached his final game as a Buccaneer on February 13, 1996, he wanted only for people to remember the “Big Q”.  Post-Beloit, Quamme continues to work hard and achieve success at Quamme Insurance, one of the top fifty agencies for Sales for Allied Insurance in 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007. He is President of the Lions Club in Columbus, Wisconsin, and the current project his club is supporting is building a basketball court in a local park.  In 2004, Quamme married Beloit Alumna Sudha Pavuluri, a member of the class of 1994. They reside in Columbus.

Hall of Honor YearsOne of the fiercest competitors to ever play for the Buccaneer Football program, Maurice Redd was a different person on and off the field.  Off the field, from early in his life, he had a great desire to work with and help people, especially kids.  On the field, his main goal was to do whatever was needed to secure a victory for the Bucs.  In his defensive back position, Redd was constantly around the ball, which explains his seven career interceptions and nearly 200 tackles.  After earning team Defensive Rookie of the Year honors in his first season, he was a three-time All-Midwest Conference selection, including the North Division Defensive Player of the Year as a junior, a two-time Buccaneer Defensive Player of the Year, and the team MVP, the Wisconsin Private College Player of the Year and a near consensus Division III All-American as a senior.  Twice he was All-MWC at two positions – defensive back and special teams player.  Under Head Coach Ed DeGeorge, Redd helped lead the Bucs to North Division titles in both 1992 and 1994 and a share of the title in 1995.  As for his off-the-field life, Redd continues to pursue his goal of working with and helping kids. After taking graduate courses in Social Work at Loyola University and later at the University of Chicago, Redd moved back to Rockford, where he runs his own business, and continues to dedicate his time and talent to helping others, especially his daughter.
