Peejay Brun has guided the Mavericks softball program to unprecedented heights since being named head coach on August 22, 2017.
Prior to the covid shutdown, Coach Brun led the Mavericks to a 36-27 record (17-10), a third-place finish in the Sun Belt Conference and the program’s first postseason title, capturing the 2019 Postseason NISC (National Invitational Softball Championship) title. After the regular season wrapped up, the Mavericks were selected to the NISC tournament, winning the Nacogdoches Regional before advancing to Fort Collins, Colorado to compete in the final 4 championship round. The Mavericks defeated Iowa State on a walk-off, 4-3, to capture the NISC!
Postseason awards came at an all-time high in 2019 with Brun at the helm. Six Mavericks (Whitney Walton, Laura Curry, Randi Phillips, Reagan Wright, Aileen Garcia and Krista Rude) were named All-Conference – the second-most in the Sun Belt and the most in the program since 1987. Walton and Curry continued to pick up awards well into the postseason, both being named to the NFCA All-Region Teams. Curry finished the season as the NCAA national leader in hits (91) – the first Maverick to ever lead the country in any category. Curry also became the second Maverick to garner All-America status, after being named to the Softball America All-American team. Walton, meanwhile, became just the third Maverick to be selected to the Academic All-America team.
The impact that Brun had on UT Arlington was instant, as she guided the Mavericks to a 30-win campaign in 2018 on the way to the program's first-ever postseason regional title in the National Invitational Softball Championship (NISC) with a win over Texas Tech in the Regional Final and an appearance in the NISC Championship Round.
Brun saw two named to the NFCA All-Region team in Reagan Wright and Laura Curry. Under Brun's coaching at the plate, Wright shattered the program's all-time RBI record in becoming the first Maverick to knock more than 50 runs in during a season. Curry hit a blistering .355 batting average.
Four Mavericks were selected to the league's all-conference teams in Brun's first season. Joining Wright and Curry were Sandra Mendoza and Randi Phillips.
Off the field, UTA was selected as an NFCA All-Academic team with eight being named NFCA All-American Scholar Athletes.
