Reagan Duty is a humble and unassuming sophomore softball player for the nationally ranked Barbers Hill Lady Eagles.

Now consider herself a hero and legend after her base hit in the bottom of the eighth inning Thursday night lifted Barbers Hill (40-2) to a 6-5 win over Lake Creek and a two-game sweep of the Class 5A Region 3 title at Cy Ranch High School and a trip to next week’s state finals in Austin.
