    ARVADA — For the second year in a row, Chatfield’s wrestling team was blanked by Pomona in a Class 5A Jeffco League dual.

    It was a celebration and a bit of a goodbye for Chatfield football standout Dalton Keene on Jan. 6.

    A couple of dozen students, coaches, faculty and family were on hand on the final day of winter break for students to give Keene a sendoff before he moves on. While National Letter of Intent Signing Day is Feb. 1, Keene will already be enrolled and taking classes at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Va., by then.

  • Lady Rebels escape Dakota Ridge in OT

    The Columbine Rebels’ girls’ basketball team narrowly defeated rival Dakota Ridge 60-57 with a scrappy overtime finish at home on Jan. 5.

    Despite being road-weary from a punishing schedule, the Lady Eagles (1-8) never allowed the Lady Rebels (6-2) to take more than a handful-of-points lead. In the second quarter, both teams hit a scoring slump — Columbine managing only six points to Dakota Ridge’s 10.

  • McNutly, Eagles upend Rebels

    If hearing voices in your head makes you crazy, then Dakota Ridge sophomore Greg McNulty is crazy like a fox.

    McNulty was instrumental in the Eagles’ 56-54 victory over Columbine on Jan. 5,  scoring 10 points on 10 free throw attempts and all in the fourth quarter. That helped the Eagles (2-8) hand previously unbeaten Columbine its first loss of the season.

    But, jokingly, McNulty attributed his cool under pressure mentality to “the guy living in my head.”

  • Cougars get in a zone early vs. Jaguars

    EVERGREEN — The fact that top-ranked Evergreen started out in a 2-3 zone against a D’Evelyn team built on its outside shooting was a peculiar decision. 

    It’s not what one would expect. But it worked like a charm for the Lady Cougars.

  • A one-man wave of patriotism

    A Morrison man is showing the flag — literally — to do his part to stop the divisiveness that surrounded November’s presidential election.

    Jeff McNamara has taken to waving an American flag near his home at U.S. 285 and Sourdough Drive, at the roundabout in Marshdale, on overpasses along C-470, and elsewhere. He calls his stints with the flag “Yay America” rallies.

    Running for public office can be an arduous process for those in the race, but oftentimes a candidate’s family also bears the burden of a campaign.

    Acknowledging and thanking friends and family members for their commitment and dedication through Election Day was a common theme for many of Jeffco’s elected officials during a swearing-in ceremony Tuesday morning at the Jeffco courthouse in Golden.
