Hagen Joins Bearcats Coaching Staff Along With Former Terrapin Player

The Willamette University softball team introduces two new members to their 2005 coaching staff. They are former softball player Marcie Hagen (2004) and Casey Leiter, a 2004 graduate from the University of Maryland.

Recently named as a 2003-2004 National Fastpitch Coaches Association All-American Scholar-Athlete, Hagen is a four-time All-Conference and All-Region athlete. She holds the individual career records at Willamette for the highest batting average (.402), on base percentage (.461), most runs scored (94), most hits (167), most doubles (37), runs batted in (75), total bases (217), walks (49), sacrifice flies (7), stolen bases (67), and most stolen base attempts (74).

Leiter attended the University of Maryland, where she started her freshman year at third base, sophomore year in the outfield, and junior and senior seasons behind the plate. Casey is listed as eighth in program history with 58 walks, sixth all-time with 22 sacrifice hits, and six sacrifice flies which ties her for second in Maryland’s career record books for the Terrapins. She is currently attending Willamette University’s MAT (Masters of Arts and Teaching) program.

Hagen and Leiter were once teammates on Washington’s ASA Snohomish County
Merchants, and now reunite as assistant coaches for the Bearcats.

Damian Williams is head coach of Bearcat Softball.
