Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

Babcock, a right-handed pitcher, went 22-0, with a 0.06 earned run average and 221 strikeouts in 127 innings in 2010, as Legacy finished 22-0-1 and claimed its third consecutive Class 5A title.

“Babcock is absolutely one of the best pitchers to have ever come out of the state,” said Tod Bunker, Arvada West coach, in a news release. “She throws harder than most kids, but she’s got good placement on her pitches, too.”

Babcock signed a letter of intent to player for the University of Arizona in the fall of 2010.
