  • Calmer Garcia redeems self

    ARVADA — Santana Garcia peeked up at the scoreboard, shook his head in disgust and continued to swim in what was to have been a cool-down period after the 50-yard freestyle. It was more like cooling off time for the Chatfield Senior High junior.

    Grace Koza’s mission as a freshman in 2014 was to qualify for the 5A state championships at No. 1 singles, a fait accompli despite losing in the first round of regional play.
