 Brownrigg has served as associate athletic director and senior woman administrator at Pacific University in Forest Grove, Ore. since 2012. She was named senior associate athletic director in 2020.

 Brownrigg replaces Monica Maxwell, who recently accepted a position with the National Federation of State High School Association (NFHS) in Indianapolis, Ind.

 In charge of all internal athletic department operations at Pacific, Brownrigg oversaw the budget, 24 sports, athletic facilities, staff and coaches and intramurals / recreation. She served as the university’s NCAA compliance officer and Title IX deputy and formed discussion groups and initiated training around diversity, equity and inclusion.

 As one of four assistant executive directors at the OSAA Brownrigg will administer state championship events in soccer, cheerleading, dance/drill, band/orchestra, and tennis. She will also serve as a staff liaison to various committees, answer eligibility questions, and interpret rules/policies for member schools.

 “I am thrilled and honored for the opportunity to join the OSAA team,” said Brownrigg. “I look forward to building trusted and lasting relationships while serving OSAA member schools.”

 Brownrigg led many Northwest Conference championships as meet / tournament director and was a member of the NCAA DIII Cross Country / Track & Field Committee and chair of the Rowing Committee. Prior to Pacific, she was director of compliance and student services at University of Portland.

 “We are excited to have Lauren join the OSAA staff,” said Weber. “Her experience gained over the years at the collegiate level will serve our membership well.”

 A 2005 graduate of the University of Kansas with a bachelor of science in sports management, Brownrigg lettered four years for the Jayhawks in cross country and track & field. She earned a masters of education in intercollegiate athletic leadership from the University of Washington (’07).
