She has been very successful in the Lotto Cross Cup (Belgium's domestic cross country series), having won the series overall a total of eight times, including six consecutive wins from 2003–09. This included a win at the Lotto Cross Cup Brussels in 2007, in which she finished ahead of Lornah Kiplagat and Emebt Etea. She has also won twice at the Eurocross meeting in Luxembourg.
Dejaeghere missed most of the 2009 and 2010 seasons. She was the runner-up at the Campaccio race in January 2011, but did not compete again until November's Lotto Cross Cup van West-Vlaanderen, where she was again runner-up (this time behind Yuliya Ruban).
