Assistant coach Angela Perry begins her 13th season with the Mavericks.
Perry serves as the Mavericks first base coach opposite head coach Debbie Hedrick. In her 13th seasons as an assistant coach, Perry has helped UT Arlington to a 296-261-2 record. Forty-one of those wins came in the 2003 season where the Mavs set a school record and gave the program's first NCAA tournament berth. In addition to her responsibilities at game time, Perry works with infield and outfield defensive schemes.
Perry also handles the academics and conditioning for the Mavericks, as well as assisting Coach Hedrick with recruiting and team travel. A member of the National Fastpitch Coaches Association, Perry has been involved with the implementation and instruction of the Mavericks summer camp since the summer of 2000. A versatile player herself, Perry has experience with several positions on the field. In her first season at UTA in 1996, she served mainly as a reserve infielder and was an offensive asset, scoring 13 runs in the 35 games she appeared in.
Perry became a defensive giant in the outfield her sophomore year when she led the team in putouts with 53, and led the team in doubles her junior year with eight, including a pair against conference rival Sam Houston State. In 1999, she recorded 48 putouts from third base, where she started 53 games.
Perry completed her undergraduate studies in exercise and sports science in May of 1999. A native of Benbrook, Perry captained the softball and volleyball teams at Western Hills High School, achieving district honors in both sports, and was a member of the basketball team. A leader of academics, she was the secretary of the National Honor Society.
