DENVER — Lexi Craig just did two things never been done before at Legend high school.
One, win a 9NEWS Swag Chain as the Colorado high school athlete of the week.
Two, launch a homerun that hit the Titans scoreboard!
The shot was estimated to be over 260 feet and helped Legend earn a 16-0 victory.
Scotty Gagne surprised the softball star Wednesday morning while she was practicing with her team along with the entire football team and cheer and poms squad to surprise her with the honor.
