Coach Info:
Position:

Lauren Cognigni begins her third season as an assistant coach with the University of Delaware softball team in 2014.

Cognigni, a four-year letterwinner and 2008 graduate of Saint Joseph’s University, serves as the Blue Hens’ pitching coach and first base coach.

During her first season in Newark in 2012, Cognigni helped the Blue Hens win 15 games and qualify for the CAA Tournament.

Last year Delaware won 35 games, the second most in program history and one shy of the school record set in 2000. The Blue Hens established a new record by winning nine consecutive league games, while their 12 conference wins rank second in program history.

UD had a tremendous season at the plate, setting school single season records with 236 runs scored, 427 hits and 72 doubles. The Blue Hens' 20 home runs were tied for second most in a UD single season, while their 61 steals also ranked second all-time.

Under Cognigni's tutelage, Delaware ranked third in the CAA with a 2.79 team earned run average and posted five shutouts.

Prior to arriving at UD Cognigni spent two and a half years at Marist College, and was instrumental in helping the Red Foxes improve from eighth place in the MAAC in 2010 to a second place finish the following year. The Red Foxes’ earned run average dropped nearly two runs, from 5.71 in 2010 to 3.79 in 2011, as Marist showed a 23-win improvement.

She also helped Red Foxes pitcher Emily Osterhaus improve from a 3-12 record an a 4.95 ERA in 2010 to a 15-10 mark with a 3.14 ERA the next year. Prior to arriving at Marist Cognigni spent the 2009 season serving as an assistant with her alma mater, working primarily with the outfielders and pitchers while serving as the first base coach.

Cognigni was a four-year standout at Saint Joseph’s, leaving the program as the all-time leader with 534 career strikeouts. She fired the second perfect game in school history as a freshman, and also tossed a pair of no-hitters during her career.
