  • Mintz, Lady Chargers win pitchers’ duel

    The words Chatfield starting pitcher Rebecka Mintz spoke were simple ones as to how important Chatfield’s 2-1 upset of Dakota Ridge on Sept. 24 was.
    “It’s so big, especially the past two years losing to Dakota. We came out the whole season wanting this game. It’s huge,” Mintz said.

  • Chargers’ Berry among the favorites at 5A state tourney

    The Chatfield senior opened the boys golf season with a 66 at Aurora Hills. He won two of six league matches. He was named league and regional medalist. And, now, he’s got to be considered at least one of a handful of favorites to win the 5A state title next week at Brookcliff Country Club in Grand Junction.
    “I basically accomplished my two primary goals of winning league and regional. It’s everything I can hope for,” Berry said.

  • Flat start, missing starters hurt Rebels

    LAKEWOOD — Bear Creek scored two goals 90 seconds apart early in the first half, and overmatched Columbine fell to the Bears, 5-0, at Lakewood Memorial Field on Sept. 22.
    With two starters sitting out courtesy of red cards given out in the previous contest against Arvada West, the Rebels were no match for the Bears.
    “We came out super flat, missing two of our starters to the ejections in the previous game.” Columbine coach Brian Todd said. “We came out flat and it cost us two goals early, and it was hard to recover.”

    On Sept. 22 at Jefferson County Stadium, the Eagles struggled with turnovers and missed opportunities in a 14-10 loss to Green Mountain in the 4A Mountain Plains Conference opener.
