Kasey Griffith finished her first season as a full-time assistant coach in 2015 with the Drake softball team after spending the previous two seasons as a volunteer assistant coach. 

Griffith, formerly Schlafke, played three years at shortstop before moving to third base in her final season at SIUE. She graduated fifth all-time in career home runs at SIUE with 18, and started 182 games in her four seasons (2008-11).

An excellent student, Griffith was named to the Ohio Valley Conference Commissioner's Honor Roll twice and to the Great Lakes Valley Conference All-Academic team once. She graduated with a bachelor's degree in exercise and wellness.

Griffith was a multi-sport athlete at Dallas Center Grimes High School, where she earned all-conference, all-district and all-state honors in softball. Her head coach for softball was her dad, Steve Schlafke, a long-time, highly-successful local high school head coach who has won over 1,100 games and two state titles leading DCG.

Griffith and her husband, Calvin, have one son, Beckett, and reside in Dallas Center.
