Winter Clinic


A former Spartan softball standout, Jessica (Beech) Bograkos has been on the coaching staff at her alma mater since 2007, when she returned as a volunteer assistant and became a full-time member of the staff a year later. Along with assisting in day-to-day duties, Bograkos' primarily work is with MSU's pitching staff.

A two-time NFCA All-America honoree, Bograkos holds the MSU record for career no-hitters (4), wins (72), shutouts (24) and strikeouts (659). In addition, she holds single-season records for wins (29), innings pitched (283.1), appearances (53), shutouts (13) and the top two spots on the single-season strikeout chart (264, 235). Bograkos earned her first All-America honor following her junior year, during which she posted a 27-11 record with a 1.25 ERA. She posted 30 complete games with 13 shutouts for State in 2003. Bograkos also hit .254 (43-for-169) on the season and was Second-Team All-Big Ten.


As a senior, Bograkos was a First-Team All-Big Ten selection, as she not only posted 29 wins as a pitcher but led the Big Ten in batting in conference games with a .406 batting average.

She also was named Big Ten All-Tournament, All-Big Ten and Academic All-District, as well as First-Team All-Great Lakes Region in both 2003 and 2004.

A native of Okemos Mich., Bograkos earned her bachelor's degree in Psychology from Michigan State University in 2004. She currently resides in Okemos, Mich., with her husband Tim, a former MSU basketball player, and their son, Tyler.
