#13 Lexy Ronning

Lexy was born in Sioux City, IA but grew up in Sioux Falls before moving to California to act professionally in film and theatre. She has recently returned to Sioux Falls and is a Tennis Professional at Match Pointe.  Lexy lives with her boyfriend Korbin and their 5 month old fur baby.  She’s a die hard Steelers fan, national level tennis player, and one of the youngest state champions in South Dakota.  She was a high school bowling state champion and played on travel teams for softball and basketball.  Her drive to always be better than the team across from her, prompted her to join the Sioux Leopards and get back into competition. Lexy is a solid tackler, and good at reading pass plays. 

Lexy just finished her rookie season as Wide Receiver, Running Back Punt/Kick Returner, and Cornerback. She quickly earned herself a reputation as a quick around-the-end running back and a wide receiver you simply cannot allow to catch the ball so it’s fitting to call her “The Bullet”. Her defensive cornerback pass deflections, long yardage run and pass plays, and her reliable pass catching heads made her invaluable this season.

Offensively, Lexy lead our team and was #4 in our Division for Rushing with 165 yards in four games on 19 carries (averaging 8.7 yards per carry), with 1 rushing touchdown and a season long run of 87 yards.  Lexy was #2 in our Division for Receiving (only behind teammate Jessie Ahlers) with 133 yards in 5 receptions with 1 receiving touchdown and a season long pass reception of 68 yards.  Her two touchdowns in four games landed her in the #4 position for Touchdowns this season.

Defensively, Lexy chalked up one QB sack and two pass deflections, landing her #4 on our Division for Pass Deflections. Lexy also finished #2 in our Division as a Kick Returner with 46 yards in just 2 kick returns for an average of 24 return yards per kick.

Lexy has been a respected player with many wow moments this season.  We’re proud to call her our teammate. Thanks for a memorable rookie year, Lexy – proud to have you on board!
