Coach Fox and the UT Arlington softball team completed the fall season and are working towards competing in the spring.

Meagan Denny-White was hired in July 2012 as a softball assistant coach and took the lead with the UT Arlington pitching staff. After her first season as an assistant coach the Mavericks finished with a 25-28 overall record. White coached senior Teri Lyles to three WAC Player of the Week awards and her first no-hitter of her career.

White, a Texas native, returned to the Lone Star State after competing at the pro level as a member of the Chicago Bandits.

White was recruited out of Crowley High School by the University of Texas. As a freshman, White made 17 appearances, 15 starts and 2 in relief. She pitched two no-hitters, two one-hit complete games, as well as 5 shutouts. White finished the 2005 season 8-2 with one save and had a remarkable 11 strikeouts per 7 innings.

Her most notable game that 2006 season came against Texas A&M Corpus-Christi, where she struck out 16 batters while only giving up one run in a complete game effort.

White continued her domination as a junior, earning a 9th place ranking in the NCAA with 10.2 strikeouts per 7 innings pitched. She posted a 21-16 record with 230.2 innings pitched and held opposing teams to a batting average of just .193. White's hot pace continued as she pitched 20 complete games, had 10 shutouts, and added yet another no-hitter to her resume. She finished ranked seventh in the Big 12 with an ERA of 1.73, while leading the conference in strikeouts (337) and starts (41). White was named to the 2007 All-Big 12 Conference second team and earned Big-12 Pitcher-of-the-Week May 1, 2007.

In her final season of collegiate softball, White made her mark in the Longhorn record books.
