  • Lady Chargers’ offense clicks in 2nd half

    The first half of Chatfield’s 56-43 girls basketball victory at rival Columbine on Jan. 23 was a case of both teams having their share of struggles. The Lady Chargers failed time and again to make crisp passes in to the paint, while Columbine was forcing shots.
    But in the second half it was only the Lady Rebels who struggled.
    Kelsi Lawrence led a balanced Chatfield attack with a game-high 10 points as the Lady Chargers extended their winning streak over Columbine to five games. Overall, Chatfield had lost four of its previous five.

    The stalwart goaltender was a brick wall as Columbine produced its first shutout in more than three years with a 2-0 victory over the Eagles. It was the first shutout for the Rebels since a 5-0 win over Mullen on Jan. 19, 2010, a stretch of 61 games.

  • A hard look at school safety

    The shocking and senseless murder of 20 students and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut is a painful reminder that schools are not always the safe havens we expect them to be.
