Hagen returned to Pacific to join the Tigers' coaching staff before the 2010 season and will enter her fifth year of coaching for Pacific. In 2013, the Tigers last in the conference, Hagen helped Pacific finish second in the Big West in team batting average (.283) and third in hits (423).
In her four years in the dugout for Pacific, Lizzie has helped develop a young core of players into conference champions after earning the Tigers' first ever Big West title in 2011. Working with the infield defensively and all of the Tigers' hitters, Hagen helped to guide Pacific's hitters to a team and conference-record .323 batting average in 2011, shattering the previous records of .299 and .311, respectively.
Coming off of a record breaking offensive season in 2011, the 2012 Tigers were nearly as good as Pacific finished the year hitting .307 as a team, ranking No. 23 in the nation and third all-time in Big West history. On top of their batting average, the Tigers led the way in the Big West in almost every offensive category as Pacific was tops in: slugging (.439), on-base% (.390), runs (260), hits (430), RBI (235), doubles (80), home runs (34), walks (169) and total bases (614).
Additionally, Hagen was in charge of Pacific's scouting and game-plan development.
Prior to coming back to Pacific, Hagen spent two seasons at Saint Mary's after graduating from Pacific in 2007 with a degree in education. On the bench for the Gaels, Hagen's duties included working with the infield, hitting and game day management. Off the field, Hagen assisted with the Gaels' recruiting and travel coordination.
One of the top players to wear the
Orange and Black at Pacific, Hagen finished her four year career in
2007. A two-time all-conference shortstop, Hagen ended her career
among the top-10 in Tiger history in home runs (No. 6 - 17),
doubles (No. 8 - 33), triples (No. 8 - 7), RBI (No. 10 - 85), Runs
(No. 8 - 112) and walks (No. 4 - 80). In her final season of
action, Hagen helped lead the Tigers back to the NCAA tournament
after posting career-highs in hitting (.281), home runs (7), hits
(50), RBI (33) and runs (42).
Defensively, Hagen was one of the best shortstops in the conference and the country as she led the Tigers' infield to a .978 fielding percentage in 2006, ranking Pacific No. 6 in the country in fielding. During the season, Hagen committed just four errors at short, a career-best for the infielder.
