2009: Named to the Big Sky All-Academic team for the third-consecutive season. Earned a spot in the starting lineup in 22 of the 27 matches in which she competed. Turned in her best offensive effort against San Jose State (Sept. 10), where she hit at a team-leading .462 clip (13-1-26), while also collecting 11 digs and two blocks. Recorded a career-high three blocks on three separate occasions and a career-high three aces in Eastern’s 3-1 victory over Houston (Sept. 4). Had double-digit digs in six different matches, including a season-high 18 against conference foe Idaho State (Sept. 25). Tallied 16 digs in EWU’s 3-0 defeat of Montana State, which tied the second-best three-match defensive performance for an Eagle in 2008.

2008: For the second straight season, Brown earned Big Sky Conference All-Academic accolades. On the second day of the season, she had two of her five double-digit kill performances of the campaign, 10 in a 3-0 sweep of Arkansas, hitting .318 in the process (10-3-22), and 11 in a 3-2 loss to No. 17 Colorado State. She had two career highs in a 3-1 win over Washington State with two service aces and a pair of blocks. Brown also had a trio of career marks in a 3-1 loss at Northern Arizona on Oct. 4, tallying 16 kills and 21 digs to go with two aces. That contest saw Brown record a double-double for the first time, while her dig total far surpassed her previous career mark of nine. She also played well in a four-set victory over the Lumberjacks on Nov. 6, hitting .333 (12-1-33) with 12 kills. Her second-highest dig total, 17, was achieved in a sweep at Portland State.

2007: Brown was named to the Big Sky Conference’s All-Academic team. She played well in successive matches versus Utah State and San Francisco, compiling eight and five kills, respectively, in those contests. Late in the season, she took over on the left side for an injured Chelsea Ross. Her top performance came in her first full match following that incident, as she hit .400 (11-1-25) in a 3-1 win over Montana State. Two matches later, Brown set a season high in kills with 16 against Northern Colorado. In three of the last four contests of the season, Brown had 10+ kills. Her 14 putaways in the Big Sky quarterfinals helped the Eagles to a dramatic 3-2 win over Northern Arizona.

High School: Her senior year, Brown was named to the 2B All-State first team and was the Most Valuable Player of the North Central League. She also earned MVP honors in basketball. Each of those teams placed sixth at state that year. In the state track meet, she was fourth in the 400-meter run and eighth in the long jump as a junior, seventh in the high jump as a senior. She is the daughter of Penny and Gary Brown and is majoring in recreation management and outdoor recreation. Her sister, Laney, is a redshirt freshman on the 2008 EWU squad.
