  • Vandals cause $25,000 in damage at Meadows Golf Club

    Authorities are on the lookout for vandals who caused more than $25,000 in damage to golf carts and fencing at the Meadows Golf Club in South Jeffco.

    Vandals visited the course on three separate occasions over the past month and were apparently discouraged during the third incident by recently installed surveillance cameras that photographed two suspects and a vehicle. 

  • Cherry Creek clips Dakota Ridge in 6OT thriller

    LOVELAND – They played and played and played some more. Almost all night. Catch your breath, this might go on forever.

    It actually was six overtimes between Cherry Creek and Dakota Ridge in what is believed to be the longest game in Colorado High School state hockey history. Then it was over. Chris Nitchen’s game-winning goal 36 seconds into the sixth overtime helped Cherry Creek end Dakota Ridge’s season 3-2 in the state ice hockey semifinals on March 5 at the Budweiser Events Center.

  • Vulcan spoke truth to his American fans

    When the original “Star Trek” debuted in September 1966, our nation was about to be torn apart by an unpopular war in Vietnam and by race riots at home. In the nearly half-century since, the science-fiction juggernaut spawned five additional television series and 12 movies on its way to becoming a cultural icon.

    At first, many assumed “Star Trek” to be an escapist space opera, but it didn’t take long for the writers to begin secreting much bigger issues into their scripts, from racism to war to civil rights.

  • Holtzmann, Chaparral end Dakota Ridge’s best season

    The last two fingers on Jake Holtzmann’s left hand were taped together, the result of a dislocation a few weeks prior. Unfortunately for the Dakota Ridge Eagles, the Chaparral senior is right-handed and has a pretty good shot, especially from the foul line.

    The loss ended the Rebels’ season with a 15-10 record.

    Columbine advanced out of the first round three days earlier with a 71-57 home victory over Hinkley.

  • Lady Falcons, despite loss, headed to regionals

    Front Range Christian may have dropped the third-place game of the 2A District 4 tournament 32-17 to Denver Christian on Feb. 28 at Vista Peak High School, but it gained so much more four days earlier.

    The Lady Falcons (3-19) scored a 34-30 win over Limon in the pigtail game Feb. 24 to lock up a regional tournament berth. The Lady Falcons lost to top-seeded Byers, 53-25, in the semifinals two days later. Front Range Christian will play Peyton on March 6 at Mullen High School in the Central Regional. Tip-off is scheduled for 4 p.m.

  • Burlington uses late free throws to top FRCS

    AURORA — From an outsider’s view, according to Front Range Christian boys basketball coach Brad Folk, the Falcons’ Feb. 28 game against Burlington was a loss. Well, it was. 

    The Cougars won the 2A District 4 championship game 45-39 at Vista Peak High School. But to the Falcons, it was a program builder.

  • Eagles stun Air Academy, Frozen Four-bound

    In the 2011-12 season, Dakota Ridge’s ice hockey team was 1-18, and any promise of a brighter future, at least from the outside looking in, was bleak. That was also Alec Hines’ first season as head coach. 

    Three years later, the Eagles are one win away from playing for a state championship.

    Zach Williams and Reed Hoogenboom scored first-period goals, and Graehm Konsella’s second-period tally proved to be the game-winner as Dakota Ridge upset host Air Academy, 3-2, on Feb. 28 at the Sertich Ice Arena in Colorado Springs.
