  • Chargers win 4th of July tourney

    The Chatfield Chargers’ summer baseball program captured the Cherokee Trail Fourth of July tournament with an extra-inning victory over Fossil Ridge on July 1. Jason Lighthall capped the win with an RBI single.
    Chatfield, which had tied the Garretson Bears earlier during pool play, topped the Weld County-area team, which included serveral college players, as well as Mullen in elimination-round play to reach the finals.
    The Chargers were coming off a third-place finish a week earlier at the Decker Sports CWS tournament in Omaha, Neb.
     

  • Chargers tee off on Eagles’ pitching

    An early start time didn’t bother Chatfield on July 7 against Dakota Ridge. The Chargers pounded out 13 runs on 17 hits in a 13-3 summer-league win over the Eagles at Dakota Ridge High School. The game was shortened to five innings because of the 10-run mercy rule.
    Chatfield scored two or more runs in four of the five innings. Chargers pitcher Patrick Barder allowed three runs on seven hits in five innings. He was even better at the plate going 3-for-3 with a home run.

  • Littleton High grad Huffer stepping into national spotlight

    It’s July 4, the day before 2008 Littleton High School graduate Becca Huffer tees off in the U.S. Women’s Open. She’s confident, comfortable and not showing the nerves that would be apropos for an amateur golfer playing in her first major.
    But being that Huffer, 22, was paired with Korea’s Mi Jung Hur and Canada’s Isabelle Beisiegel in the final group of the opening round, teeing off at 2:42 p.m. local time at Blackwolf Run in Kohler, Wis., it would be easy for those nerves to knot her up.

  • Fate rides on United’s side

    The feeling was a weird one, according to Heritage High rising sophomore Madalyn McGuire. After all her U-15 Colorado United team went 1-2 in pool play at the 12-team Region IV tournament. So how could it possibly advance to the eight-team quarterfinals at Arvada’s Stenger Soccer Complex?
    For all intents and purposes it shouldn’t have. It had to have been fate.

  • Enough Americans still believe in America

    Seems like there’s plenty to lose sleep over these days. We’re into the fourth year of the worst recession since the Great Depression. In Afghanistan, we’re a decade into an “operation” nobody seems to understand. Long-term fiscal obligations mount apace, pushing dangerously against the limits of mathematical sustainability.

  • South Platte Park offers wilderness, wildlife amidst an urban area

     By Laura Bernero, for the Courier

    Between Santa Fe Drive and the South Platte River in Littleton, the South Platte Park natural area is a peaceful contrast to the nearby buzz of the city. The river winds through tall cottonwoods, and visitors and wildlife create the only bursts of activity among the seamless woods and wetlands.

    With warm temperatures tempting people to spend time outdoors, the park is in the middle of its busiest season of the year.
