    Feb. 7 marked another National Letter of Intent Signing Day. A dozen high schools within Jeffco Public Schools had signing celebrations on Wednesday.

    “It’s always a special day,” Columbine principal Scott Christy said during the Rebels’ celebration.

    By Tyler Johnson

    At the Class 5A Region 3 tournament on Saturday at Poudre High School, Columbine and Chatfield earned a few spots at state.

    Smaller teams such as Chatfield and Columbine were looking to qualify as many wrestlers as they could as an overall team title was out of reach early in the day, with Poudre running away with the team victory.

    The best chance for Chatfield came from senior Earl Cameron Manzanares, who easily advanced to the semifinals with a pin and a major victory by a score of 10-1.

  • D'Evelyn senior Selin wins state titles in 200, 500 freestyle

    THORNTON — Over the last couple years, the weeks leading up to the state swim meet haven’t been kind to D’Evelyn High School’s Abbey Selin.
    But none of that seemed to matter on Friday at the Veterans Memorial Aquatic Center, as a flu earlier in the week couldn’t stop the senior standout from going for the gold in the 3A state meet. In the end, she took home the titles for the 200-yard and 500-yard freestyle events.

  • Winners and losers
  • Living life to the fullest in Colorado

    Saturday marked a milestone, of sort, for yours truly. The day — Feb. 3 — made it 10 years since I moved to Colorado. Pulling up to my in-laws’ house with my wife and youngest children awaiting me, my oldest son and the family dog as we hopped out of the U-Haul, completing our 1,700-mile, two-day trip just in time to watch — imagine this — the New England Patriots playing in a Super Bowl.

  • Chargers, Rebels and Eagles excel at league swim

     

    ARVADA — Kathryn Shanley wasn’t expecting to win the 200-yard freestyle at the 5A Jeffco League girls swimming championships, but she ended up doing so anyway. And that was just the start.

    The Chatfield freshman followed that up with wins in the 500 freestyle, 200 free relay and 400 free relay to help the Chargers to a second-place finish Friday at George J. Meyers Pool.

    By Levi Waddell

    ARVADA — The D’Evelyn girls swimming and diving team had a strong outing at the 4A Jeffco League championships, finishing in fourth place with 233 points.

    With the season coming to a close, the Jaguars look to fine-tune everything as the state finals approach.

    Abbey Selin had the strongest showing for the Jaguars, finishing first in both the 200-yard freestyle and 500-yard freestyle. Selin also took home the Jeffco League Swimmer of the Year award and was surprised, to say the least.

  • D’Evelyn hoops falls to Evergreen for second time

    By Michael Kelly

    DENVER — The D’Evelyn Jaguars were right there with the ninth-ranked Evergreen Cougars on Jan. 31 when, with 1:08 left in the first quarter, the Jaguars boys basketball team tied the game on two free throws by Charles Dinegar.

    But then Evergreen’s defense got tough, holding D’Evelyn to four points over the next 7:51, grabbing a nine-point lead and never relinquished it in a 68-56 win at D’Evelyn High School.

  • After season, Rebel wrestlers look to regionals

    LITTLETON — Ted Mullin was the perfect younger brother last season when, as a junior for Columbine, he agreed to wrestle up a weight so senior sibling Tim could compete in the 182-pound weight classification.

    Ironically, the younger Mullin fared better. Ted qualified for his first 5A state tournament at 195, while Tim couldn’t duplicate that feat as a state qualifier.
