    LAKEWOOD — The Columbine Rebels are headed to the semifinals.

    Under the Friday night lights of Jeffco Stadium, the No. 3-seeded Rebels overcame a halftime deficit against No. 6 Regis Jesuit to defeat their Raider foes 28-18 in the quarterfinal round of the 5A football state playoffs.

    “We get to live for another week, don’t we? We get to go to practice and spend Thanksgiving week together,” head coach Andy Lowry said. “It’s one week at a time right now in the playoffs.”

    PUEBLO — This wasn’t the way it was supposed to end.

    “It’s tough,” Chatfield football coach Bret McGatlin said moments after the Chargers’ season came to an abrupt end with a 24-21 loss to Pueblo West on Saturday at Cyclone Stadium in Pueblo. “The guys really felt like they had the opportunity to go all the way this year.”

    For the past few years, D’Evelyn basketball has been a force to be reckoned with in the 4A Jeffco league, and the boys and girls both hope to carry that success into this upcoming season and perhaps improve upon their standings.

    Last season, the Jaguar girls made it to the Sweet 16 before falling to No. 2 Pueblo West, and that was a step back for them. The two years before, they made it to the Great 8.

    With the team comprised of mostly seniors and juniors, the Jaguars are hoping to return to Great-ness, or maybe even a little better.

  • Chatfield dominates in first...

    LAKEWOOD — Chatfield’s hurry-up, quick-strike offense doubles the pressure on opposing defenses.

    That combination doesn’t do the Charger defense any favors, either. Often, the Chargers barely have time to catch their breath before returning to the field after a quick score by the offense. And they tend to play in the shadow of their offensive brethren.

    LAKEWOOD — Columbine didn’t waste any time getting into playoff form for the start of the Class 5A football postseason.

    The No. 3-seeded Rebels scored on every offensive possession in the first half against No. 13 Highlands Ranch on Friday at Jeffco Stadium. The Rebels cruised to a 45-14 victory to set up a state quarterfinal date with No. 6 Regis on Friday, Nov. 17. Columbine will host the Raiders (10-1 record) at 7 p.m. at Jeffco Stadium.

  • Chatfield bows out early at state

    DENVER — After a long, hard-fought season, the Chatfield volleyball team ended its run at the state tournament at the Denver Coliseum on Saturday afternoon after losing in the round robin-style first round.

    “I think we did really great,” senior middle blocker Lacey Cowan said. “I have zero regrets because I think we put it all out in the court today. I think that we should all be happy with how we played.”

    DENVER — Although the D’Evelyn volleyball team couldn’t earn a win at the state tournament, the Jaguars still made history on their road to state this year.

    After completing a historic regular season, the D’Evelyn volleyball team ended its impressive run at the state volleyball tournament at the Denver Coliseum on Saturday after losing both of its round-robin games in the first round.

    For the first time in school history, the Jaguars earned a bid to Colorado’s biggest tournament.

  • Chatfield gymnastics ends state...

    THORNTON — The final few weeks of the season may not have been kind to the Chatfield gymnastics team, but at the 5A state competition at Thornton High School on Thursday, the remaining uninjured gymnasts put together a performance worthy of ninth place in the team category.

    Leading up to regionals, Chatfield lost two of its top varsity girls in sophomore Morgan Walters, who dislocated her elbow, and junior Megan Kramer, who sprained her ankle.

    That meant the Chargers had to compete without them at state.

    THORNTON — The season-long hard work paid off for three Columbine gymnasts as each performed in individual competitions at the 5A state meet on Thursday at Thornton High School.

    Freshman Grace Maxwell joined the Killeen sister duo, freshman Danielle and junior Nicole, as they represented the Rebels on the vault, uneven bars and floor. First up, Danielle scored an 8.275 on the uneven bars, placing her at 58th overall.
