20-year anniversary: Sports through the years at Dakota Ridge

• Other than it was the first game of the inaugural season there wasn’t much else one would want to remember from Dakota Ridge’s 45-0 loss to Regis Jesuit at Jeffco Stadium in Lakewood. The game was all but over by halftime with the Eagles trailing 31-0. Regis Jesuit’s Dan Hurley rushed for 137 yards and three scores.
