Anne Gray Rothenberg is recognized as one of the premier jump coaches in the Northeast. She has served as the assistant coach in charge of the jumping and multi events on the Brown University Track & Field Team since September 1983. Rothenberg's belief in a steady diet of lifting and technique drills has helped her establish an impressive record at Brown. Under her tutelage, new Brown University records have been set in all of the jumping and multi events. Most impressive are the six high jumpers who have cleared 7'0". Terrence Ferguson '91 leads the list at 7'4.25" followed by Dave Arundel '03 (7'3"), Doug Humphrey '00 and Ray Bobrownicki '06 (both at 7'0.25"), and Mike Lynch '94 and Timothy Weidinger '95, both at 7'0". Multi-eventer Lindsay Taylor '01 enjoyed success under Rothenberg and set school records in the high jump, pentathlon and heptathlon, and she competed at the NCAAs in the heptathlon in 2000 and 2001.

Those are only the highlights. Rothenberg's athletes have won Heptagonal titles in all six of the events she is responsible for: high jump, pole vault, long jump, triple jump, pentathlon, and heptathlon. They have earned All-East status and have been nationally ranked in Track & Field News. Under Rothenberg's guidance, the jumping component of the Brown Track & Field team is powerful in every meet competition.

Anne and her husband, recently retired Bob Rothenberg, are avid gardeners in their spare time. Both have also been active with the Ronald McDonald House which serves families whose children are at Bradley Hospital, Hasbro Children's Hospital, RI Hospital and Women and Infants Hospital.
