Elise (Kuenzi) Trask, a member of George Fox University’s 2008-09 NCAA Division III undefeated national championship women’s basketball team, serves as the full-time associate director of athletics for the Bruins’ 17-sport intercollegiate program.
Trask, who officially began on June 2, 2014, returned to George Fox after spending three years as the assistant director of operations for the Oregon State University women’s basketball program under her former coach with the Bruins, Scott Rueck.
As the associate director of athletics, Trask oversees all game-day operations, leads the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, and serves as the liaison between intercollegiate athletics and sports marketing.

She recorded 14 points in the greatest game in Bruin history, a 60-53 win over Washington University-St. Louis in the 2009 national-title game in Holland, Mich., that completed a perfect 32-0 season. She is the women’s basketball record holder for best single-game free throw percentage (13-13 at Whitman College on Jan. 3, 2009) and for most consecutive free throws made (30 in a row from Jan. 2-17, 2009).
Trask graduated from George Fox in 2010 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration with a concentration in marketing. She is married to former Bruin All-Northwest Conference baseball catcher Brent Trask, who teaches physical education at Edwards Elementary School in Newberg, Oregon. They are expecting their first child in the summer of 2017.
