She participated in volleyball, basketball and track and was a member of the 1974 regional champion track team; a regional and sectional champion in the shot put and discus; and participated that year in the WIAA State Track Meet in Madison.
She later attended the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point from 1974-78, where she was a four-year starter in basketball and led the Pointers in scoring all four years. She was an all-conference selection in 1975, 1976 and 1977 and is 21st on the school’s all-time scoring list with 988 points, second for highest career rebound average at 9.5 and second on the list for most rebounds in a single game with 23. She was named the team’s most valuable player twice and was also a two-year starter on the Pointer field hockey team.
Following college, Brogaard was involved with the Snitz Manufacturing AAU basketball team of East Troy from 1979-81 and was the first female to be inducted into the UW-Stevens Point Hall of Fame on Oct. 11, 1986.
