2013 (Junior):
A candidate for defensive player of the year, Foglesong excelled in both the field and the plate en route to her first career all-conference honor. A natural centerfielder playing in left for the Tigers, Foglesong made the extraordinary look routine throughout her junior year while posting a .992 fielding percentage. On the year, Foglesong was one of the best at cutting down runners trying to take an extra base as she tallied a career-best nine outfield assists before runners learned not to test her arm. In addition to her stellar play in the field, Foglesong had a career year at the plate as the junior hit .320 with 54 hits, 18 RBI and 38 runs scored. Her 38 runs scored ranked No. 4 in the conference alongside of her outfield mate, Hom, while her 54 hits put her inside of the conference's top-10. In addition to her hitting, Foglesong was the consummate teammate as she led the conference with 14 sacrifice bunts to set the table for the heart of the order. In addition to her play in the field, Megan was the recipient of the team's Catherine Harnack Academic Achievement Award for her work in the classroom to go along with All-Big West Academic honors.

Of her 35 hits, Foglesong posted 11 extra-base hits as she tallied nine doubles and two home runs. She hit her first collegiate home run against Sacramento State on March 2 before tagging her second against Valparaiso one week later in the desert in Tempe, Ariz. In addition to her hits, Foglesong scored 23 runs and drove in 21 RBI. At the end of the year, Megan was named to the Academic All-Big West team in her first year of eligibility.

2011 (Freshman):
Making an immediate impact for the Tigers in her first collegiate season, Foglesong stepped into the starting lineup from game one as Pacific's left fielder and proceeded to become one of the finest outfielders in the conference. Committing just one error in 92 chances, Foglesong finished the year as the conference's top defensive outfielder. She added one outfield assist on the year as well as she played every inning for the Tigers' during its 56 games. In addition to her defense, Megan spent the year hitting in the top third of the Tigers' order, first hitting in the No. 3 hole before moving into the No. 2 spot for much of the conference season. At the plate, Foglesong posted a .308 batting average as she tallied 53 hits in 172 at bats. Of her 53 hits, 15 were for extra-bases as she tallied 13 doubles, tied for eighth most in single season history, and two triples. Putting herself in position to score, Megan posted a league-best 44 runs on the year, a total which ranked fourth all-time in Pacific single-season history. Additionally, Megan drove in 34 RBI as she helped account for 78 runs in her first year. For her play, Foglesong earned player of the week honors on May 16 as she picked up the final weekly award for the 2011 season after leading the Tigers' to a series win over Cal Poly that clinched Pacific's first ever Big West title.
