Jarvis named to All-West Region team
ORANGE, Calif. – Chapman University softball player Jayme Jarvis has been named to the Louisville Slugger/NFCA Division III All-West Region team. The sophomore designated player earned first team honors and was the lone Panther represented among the region’s best players.
Jarvis had a breakthrough year in 2010 – her first as an everyday player – batting .282 and tying for the team lead with four home runs. She ranked third on the team with a .487 slugging percentage and finished with four doubles and 14 RBI in 28 starts as the Panthers’ designated player.
The slugger recorded a team-best eight-game hitting streak from March 10-22, during which she batted .450 (9-for-20) and raised her season average from .182 to .355. On May 1, Jarvis blasted the Chapman’s first home run at its new home field at El Camino Real Park – a two-run home run to left-center field in a win over the University of Dallas.
Jarvis is the first Chapman softball player to earn All-Region honors since a trio of Panthers was named to the team in 2008.
