Sarah Otey, Commissioner

Sarah Otey began her tenure with the Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) in June of 2021. She is only the second full-time commissioner in the history of the conference and the first woman to hold the post.

Prior to joining the OAC, Otey was the director of academic and membership affairs at the NCAA. In this role she served as primary liaison to the Division I committee responsible for strategic governance in the areas of health and safety, inclusion and DI membership. She has also directed the student-athlete reinstatement team.

Before joining the NCAA team, Otey served as assistant athletic director at Hollins University from 2010-2012, with a stint as interim AD.

Otey played basketball and graduated magna cum laude from Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia in 2007 with a Bachelor of Arts in psychology. She was twice named to the Old Dominion Athletic Conference Academic All-Conference team and was a three-time winner of the Generals’ “Barry Machado Women's Basketball Award” for leadership.

She earned a Master of Education in exercise physiology from the University of Virginia at Charlottesville in 2010 before launching her career. She has since added a variety of certifications and athletics leadership training.

As a former DIII athlete, coach, campus administrator and NCAA leader, Otey understands the DIII student-athlete experience and how to successfully integrate athletics into higher education, supporting excellence in the classroom and on the field.
