As Chatfield boys basketball coach, winning has been the standard for Steve Schimpeler. Four of his five teams have won 5A Jeffco League titles (three unbeaten) and have won at least 20 games.

But when the fall sports season rolls around, it’s sometimes been a different story for the man in charge of the boys golf team. The 2016 Chargers finished seventh in the 5A Jeffco League’s series of tournaments, and Chatfield failed to send an individual to the state tournament.
