A year after serving as the interim head coach for an SEC softball program in 2018, Gina Fogue joined head coach Jennifer McFalls’ staff in fall of 2018 as a volunteer assistant coach at the University of Kansas.
Fogue was a member of two Women’s College World Series teams during her playing career at the University of Missouri (2006-10), and later served as the program’s director of softball operations for two seasons and assistant coach for four seasons before becoming the interim head coach for the 2018 season at Mizzou.
During her season as interim head coach, Fogue led Missouri to a 30-win campaign, five wins over top-25 teams and to the final game of the NCAA Tournament Norman Regional.
As a Tiger, Fogue may be best remembered for her walk-off home run that ended Mizzou’s game-three win of the 2009 NCAA Super Regional at No. 1-seeded UCLA by a score of 9-1 in five innings. As a senior, Fogue had her best season with a .321 batting average, eight home runs, 32 RBI and a .599 slugging percentage
Fogue finished her career as a three-time First Team Academic All-Big 12 selection. She graduated from the University of Missouri in 2010 with a degree in graphic design and a minor in business.
