  • Lady Rebels intend on learning from loss

    Be it the anemic foul shooting, the 56 total fouls between the teams or Columbine’s relative inexperience — the team doesn’t have a single senior on this year’s roster — the Lady Rebels have no shortage of things to address. Especially after the finals of the Rebel for a Cause tournament on Dec. 3 at Columbine High School.

  • Jaguars’ varsity inexperience no problem

    DENVER — Success at the junior varsity level one year doesn’t necessarily correlate to the same the following season on varsity, but don’t tell that to the D’Evelyn boys basketball team. 

  • Rebels finding their footing

    Jesse Thuerk was nervous for weeks and rightfully so. The Lakewood High junior, playing goalie for the Columbine Rebels, was set to face the program — Ralston Valley — that he grew up following when he played midget hockey in Arvada. Now he found himself in net — in the 2016-17 season opener at that — against the Mustangs.

    But the tension that he had been feeling was non-existent Dec. 1. He was, as he said, unusually calm.

  • Chatfield’s run to semifinals started back in the summer

    LAKEWOOD — For Colton Hochevar, one of 12 seniors on the Chatfield Senior High football team, the 2016 season meant everything to him.

    “It absolutely changed my life. I look at life completely different and appreciate the little things,” Hochevar said.

  • Chargers' season comes to a crashing halt

    LAKEWOOD — As soon as David Moore III broke through the line on 4th-and-1 from the Chatfield 24 on his way to the end zone, the collective wind was taken out of Chatfield’s sail. The Chargers faithful sitting in the west stands at Jefferson County Stadium on Nov. 26 were silent.

    It was over.

  • Remembering a real American hero

    Several weeks ago a group of World War II veterans quietly gathered in Atlanta for what in all likelihood would be their final reunion. All in their 90s, they were the last remnant of a group of American volunteers that secretly traveled overseas in 1941 to fly combat missions against a brutal Japanese offensive in Asia. Their heroic exploits earned them the nickname “Flying Tigers.” To this day the Chinese speak of them in reverent tones, and few Flying Tigers were more revered than the spirited squadron leader known as Scarsdale Jack.
