A Farragut soccer mom has earned her second hall of fame honor.

All-American and All-SEC swimmer Elizabeth Brown Jarvis (1980-84) was one of six former Tennessee Lady Vols to be inducted into the Tennessee Lady Volunteer Hall of Fame Sept. 26.

“It was a surprise and a shock,” Jarvis said. “It was just a great honor, and it was great to be around the Lady Vols booster club ... it was kind of neat to see some old faces.”

Jarvis has been a member of the Tennessee Swimming Hall of Fame since the late 90s.

Originally from Richmond, Va., Jarvis claimed four All-America citations during her senior season and helped set what were then UT records in the 200 and 400-yard freestyle relays. She was SEC champion in 50-butterfly in 1981, and was top scorer for Tennessee as a freshman in the AIAW National Champion-ships with 23 out of 30 team points.

Jarvis placed ninth at the AIAW 1981 National Championships in the 50-butterfly and 10th in the 100-butterfly, gaining All-America honors in both events.

Current president of the Greater Knoxville Area Interclub Swimming Association, Jarvis is also a board member with Farragut High School girls soccer and swimming booster clubs.

Both of Jarvis’ daughters, Lauren, 17, and Kathleen, 14, are members of the powerful FHS Lady Admirals’ girls soccer team. Son Tom, 12, is a seventh-grader at Farragut Middle School. Her husband is Howard.
