LAKEWOOD — Nobody thought it would be a cakewalk for Chatfield’s boys basketball team to sweep through the Class 5A Jeffco League undefeated.

“I told my guys the second time around was going to be much harder than the first,” Chatfield coach Stephen Schimpeler said after the Chargers began their second go-around in league play with a 64-60 road victory over Lakewood. “We know that, but you’ve got to experience it because sometimes players don’t always believe you.”
