  • Chatfield girls remain perfect in Jeffco

    When the 2008-09 girls basketball season, Chatfield looked like a team uncomfortable in its own skin.

    Dropping six of its first seven games, Chatfield had a bumpy start transitioning to new coach Mike Deutsch’s up-tempo scheme.

    After a bit of work, the road is much smoother now for the Chargers.

    And, while the Dakota Ridge team the Chargers faced Jan. 23 isn’t as powerful as ones of the recent past, the team’s 48-43 win over the rival Eagles was significant for a number of reasons.

  • Kerr, Kopp propose legislation on Littleton sewer rates

    Jeffco lawmakers are proposing legislation that would force the city of Littleton to set sewer treatment rates paid by tens of thousands of South Jeffco homeowners based on actual usage costs.

    Littleton says its rates are fair and necessary, but a group of water and sanitation districts that rely on the Littleton/Englewood Wastewater Treatment Plant for sewer service say they don't have a voice in how rates are set.

  • Jeffco sheriff looking for potential kidnapper

    The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office is asking for help in tracking down a man who tried to force a South Jeffco woman into his truck Jan. 3 after possibly sexually assaulting her.

  • Chargers fall to Rams in OT

    LAKEWOOD — Chatfield boys basketball coach Steve Schimpeler found his missing team Jan. 21. A positive result, however, continued to hide.

    Days after going AWOL and being upset by the defensive Arvada West Wildcats, the Chargers showed up in time to face Class 5A Jefferson County League leader Green Mountain.

    The Chargers had plenty of grit and moxie for four quarters, only for the Rams to knock them out in overtime for a 67-63 defeat.

    “We have character. We just don’t have enough firepower,” Schimpeler said.

  • Chargers wear down Rebels

    The final score will read: Chatfield 80, Columbine 63, but in actuality, the boys basketball game between the two rival schools was much closer.

    The underdog Rebels played inspired basketball Jan. 14 at Chatfield Senior High School, and the first quarter, in particular, was a thing of beauty – something their coach, Jeff Wennberg, hopes becomes the norm as the team enters the meat of the Class 5A Jefferson County League schedule.

  • Armstrong, O'Brien pace Chatfield

    When the pressure is on that’s when Chrissy Armstrong is at her best.

    She proved it Jan. 14, knocking down 8-of-10 free throws in the final minute to help guide Chatfield to a 70-61 victory over Columbine in a Class 5A Jefferson County League game at Chatfield Senior High School.

  • Rebels outlast Eagles

    Columbine boys basketball coach Jeff Wennberg wasn’t happy with his teams’ performance on Jan. 16 at Dakota Ridge High School.

    A surprising fact considering it was on a night when the Rebels got only their second win of the year and first road win of the season as they defeated Dakota Ridge 48-46.

    “I’m happy with the result, but I’m not really happy with the way my guys played. I thought we took a big step back…and I think a lot of that, probably all of that had to do with Dakota Ridge,” Wennberg said.

  • Eagles upset Rebels

    The Dakota Ridge girls might be onto something.

    Three days after defeating Green Mountain, the Eagles picked off their second straight Class 5A Jefferson County League opponent, toppling rival Columbine 48-43 on the Rebels’ home floor Jan. 16.

    “I think this can be a turning point for us,” said Brooke Orcutt, who scored 11 points. “We fought through (early season struggles) and now it’s our time to succeed.”
