  • Jeon cards third-place finish at state

    Min Kyu Jeon’s fortunes changed with the weather at the Class 3A boys golf state championship at Cougar Canyon Golf Course in Trinidad.

  • Pomona hands Chatfield first loss

    ARVADA — Battered and bruised, Chatfield refused to surrender in its Class 5A Big 8 League showdown with fellow unbeaten, Pomona.

  • Chargers spike Raiders in three games

    Trailing 23-16 in the pivotal second game against No. 6 Regis, the Chatfield Chargers knew they had to put together a near-perfect run to win. Thankfully they practice this kind of stuff.

    “We practice that a lot,” sophomore middle Grace Newkirk said. “We practice in situations like that. Against (junior varsity), they have a certain lead and we have to come back and win. So, we never give up.”

  • Bra art exhibit supports double-threat fund-raiser

    “Psst…your bra strap is showing,” you whisper to your neighbor. Then you realize, that’s not an ordinary bra strap.

  • No Jims at this gym

    A small South Jeffco gym that opened in April has the typical equipment: cardio machines, weight machines, exercise balls and the like. It has classes for all ages, and it has extras such as a spa room.

    But there’s one thing it doesn’t have: men.

    The absence of men is by design — hence the name “The Women’s Gym.” The gym, at 10151-C-D W. Bowles Ave., is celebrating its grand opening Sept. 11 and 12, offering memberships without the normal fees and an open house.

  • Columbine rallies, tops Dakota Ridge

    The Columbine Rebels used a little emotional judo to slam the Dakota Ridge Eagles on Sept. 29.

    Faced with a loud section of visiting students, the Rebels figured out a way to take that force and flip it.

    “It was a little intimidating at first,” Rebels senior Danica Lawrence said. “At first all we could hear was ‘Eagles, Eagles.’ So we just decided that we were going to use that for us.”

  • Rebels dominate Wildcats

    LAKEWOOD — After suffering a gut-wrenching loss a week ago to its biggest rival, Columbine looked to set the tone early in its homecoming game against Arvada West.

    Defensive back Kevin Osborne sent the Wildcats a message that Oct. 2 was going to be a long night as he intercepted quarterback Gavin Glanz’s pass on the second play of the game and returned it 24 yards for a touchdown. The Rebels rolled from there and won the Class 5A Big 8 League game 34-10 at Jefferson County Stadium.
