Aileen Garcia and Whitney Walton are swinging UTA's highest slugging percentages.
The Mavericks outscored opponents 9-6 on the first day of the Maverick Classic.
Jarvis has been a member of the Mavericks coaching staff for two seasons and has helped take the program to new heights.
Sam Clakley allowed two runs on seven hits and three strikeouts in the 2-1 loss.
Jarvis joined the Maverick softball coaching staff in August, 2013 as an assistant coach and since has elevated the program to greater heights alongside head coach Kristie Fox.
Jarvis served as an assistant while UTA had a record-breaking 2015 season with 27 wins. The Mavs broke single-season records for batting average, runs, RBI, hits and walks. The 2016 campaign brought more success as UTA complied a 29-20 mark, the most wins since winning 30 in 2011. UTA created history in winning 19 straight games to start the year, an all-time high for the program.
The team's offense sparked a memorable season in 2017 under Jarvis' efforts. The Mavs finished with their second-highest batting average in program history, and set marks for runs scored, hits, and RBI. UTA earned a postseason berth for the first time since 2003 when playing in the National Invitational Softball Championship after a 32-win campaign.
Andy Jarvis spent five seasons as a volunteer assistant baseball coach at Texas Tech (2008-2012). Jarvis' responsibilities included working with the Tech hitters, defense and team's first-base coach. Jarvis also served as the team's video coordinator and assistant camp director.
While on the Red Raider coaching staff, Jarvis mentored 28 Major League Baseball Draft selections - which includes 11 positions players. He coached 29 All-Big 12 selections, 21 Academic All-Big 12 picks, 13 players who were named a Big 12 Player/Pitcher or Newcomer of the Week and four ABCA All-Region selections. He coached three Freshmen All-Americans and two All-Americans.
Jarvis helped lead the Red Raiders to 140 victories during his coaching career on the South Plains, including 36 wins over nationally-ranked opponents with an average of nine wins over ranked foes per season.
Jarvis joined the program prior to the start of the 2008 season as he followed his former collegiate coach, Dan Spencer, to Lubbock when Spencer joined the staff as associate head coach. Jarvis played under Spencer for four seasons at Oregon State and left as the program's all-time leader in hits, home runs, RBI and total bases. He helped lead the Beavers to 112 victories. Jarvis was named All-Pac 10 Honorable Mention in 2000, 2002 and 2003.
Jarvis started four years for the Beavers where he compiled a .320 batting average (232-for-725) with 141 runs, 42 doubles, three triples, 34 home runs, 173 RBI and 82 walks. He played in 201 games and started in 179 contests. In addition, Jarvis still holds the Beavers' single-game home run record (3, vs. Washington State - 2001), the career RBI and total bases record and is tied for the career home run mark. He remains in seven Oregon State all-time career top-10 record books.
After finishing his collegiate career he signed a free agent contract with the Philadelphia Phillies reaching Single-A in the Florida State League before finishing his pro career in July 2004. In two minor league seasons, Jarvis played in 80 games batting .247 (68-for-275) with 11 doubles, one triple, nine home runs, 46 RBI and 42 walks.
He then turned immediately to the coaching ranks where he was named head coach of the Cannons Baseball Club in Renton, Wash, in the American Legion Baseball League in the summers of 2005, 2006 and 2007. In 2006, Jarvis joined the coaching staff of his high school alma mater (Liberty High School) where he served as an assistant varsity coach for both basketball and baseball.
