Liz Jagielski (Bouck), a former DePaul All-American, is in her seventh season as an assistant coach. Jagielski joined the Blue Demon staff in August of 2004.

Making the transition from a DePaul student-athlete to an assistant coach has been seamless for Jagielski as she has helped the Blue Demons to two Women's College World Series and has twice (2005, 2007) been recognized with head coach Eugene Lenti as the National Fastpitch Coaches Association Mideast Coaching Staff of the Year.

In 2010, Jagielski teamed with Lenti and Cat Osterman in being honored as the BIG EAST Conference Coaching Staff of the Year---Jagielski's third such honor since 2007.

The 2007 season saw Jagielski and Lenti honored after the Blue Demons went a perfect 20-0 in conference play and won the university's first-ever regular season title in any sport.

Following DePaul's perfect season, Jagielski along with Lenti and Osterman reached another program and University first when they coached the Blue Demons to a BIG EAST Tournament Championship in 2008.

Jagielski plays a major role in recruiting as well as developing the Blue Demon offense and defense.

Working with the team's slap hitters since her arrival, Jagielski has mentored some of the best slappers in the country. All-American Amber Patton led the Blue Demons in 2008 with a school record 87 hits and won her third consecutive batting title. Patton boasted the best league batting average of .403, while nationally her average was the 43rd best. As a freshman and sophomore Patton was ranked in the top-15 for sacrifices per game. As a freshman Patton ranked seventh in sacrifices per game while her junior campaign saw her ranked 12th.

"Liz has made a huge impact on our program since arriving four years ago," Lenti said of his assistant. "Our 2007-08 class is a direct reflection of her work ethic and drive to be the best. Liz is an excellent teacher of the game as she understands what it takes to be successful at our level of play both offensively and defensively."

With Jagielski's help the 2007 team recorded the program's sixth best fielding percentage. The Blue Demons' .963 fielding percentage ranked 85th in the country and sixth in the BIG EAST Conference.

As a student-athlete Jagielski (2000-2003) helped the 2000 team to a Women's College World Series appearance and an overall record of 189-56-2.

Jagielski finished her career at DePaul holding the school record for most singles (248). She is also listed in the Blue Demon record book for amassing 101 stolen bases, 165 runs scored and 255 hits.

As a junior Jagielski was named an All-American and the Conference USA Player of the Year. She was also named to the NCAA Regional All-Tournament team in 2000 and was named to the C-USA All-Tournament team four times.

Following her collegiate career, Jagielski was chosen in the first round of the National Pro Fastpitch League by the Arizona Heat. She was traded to the Texas Thunder and led their offense with a .299 batting average. Her second year in the League landed her in Chicago, playing for the Chicago Bandits, a team coached by Eugene Lenti.

Jagielski graduated from DePaul in 2003 with a degree in graphic design and is currently working on her Masters in Elementary Education. Jagielski and her husband Jon, daughter Cassidy and son Peyton reside in southwest suburban Frankfort. The Jagielskis are expecting their third child in March.
