  • 'It's what we do'

    MORRISON — As Steve Whitfield and younger son, Kameron, worked on Kris Whitfield’s Roadster, the 25-year-old was trekking down the straightaway at Bandimere Speedway in his brand-new dragster. 

    He quickly exited the vehicle — after an elimination-round defeat, hurried into the race truck briefly before getting ready to race again — this time in the Roadster.

  • Johnson bumped off pedestal at...

    MORRISON — Step aside, Allen Johnson. Larry Morgan finally bumped the king off the mountain.

    The long wait for another NHRA Pro Stock champion at Bandimere Speedway finally ended July 26 at the 36th annual Mopar Mile-High Nationals. 

    The wait was even longer than usual because of a 27-minute rain delay earlier in the day and a 1 minute, 45 second grind-to-a-halt hold-up at the start line prior to their final.

    Alexis Tolbert, a sophomore-to-be who played on Chatfield's Level 3 girls lacrosse team last spring, admitted she didn't know how or why she wound up attending the inaugural Colorado Mammoth girls lacrosse camp last week.

    But , "I'm really glad I did,"  Tolbert said halfway through eight hours of the July 22-23 instructional camp at Cornerstone Park. "I just wanted to get better. It works me really hard and I got better just from one day."

    The first Hog Olympics hosted by Columbine — in 2014 — didn’t exactly go the Rebels’ way. Construction at the school forced moving the event to an off-campus site and the Rebel linemen’s performance didn’t meet their standards.

  • Chatfield alums continue quest...

    Taylor and Tyler Rogers are just trying to do what they’ve always done. The 24-year-old twins and former Chatfield Senior High baseball standouts continue to pick up innings on the minor league circuit in hopes of one day making it to the majors.

  • Rebels show passing touch

    Columbine, a football program notorious for running the football, reached the championship game in a pair of 7-on-7 passing tournaments it entered this summer.
    The natural assumption: The Rebels will change their stripes and throw the football more in 2015.

  • CSH’s Overholt sparks North’s...

    LAKEWOOD — Ben Overholt didn’t have the opportunity in 2014 — not playing defense — to make much of an offensive impact in the Colorado High School Soccer Coaches Association All-State game. Back for a second straight year on July 8 at Lakewood Memorial Field, he was determined to make it count.
    And he did.

  • Lions’ Gray soaks up vibe of All...

    LAKEWOOD — A freshman going into her sophomore year, Sarah Gray couldn’t have imagined that she would be playing in the Colorado High School Soccer Coaches Association All-State Game. But there she was July 8 at Lakewood Memorial Field.

  • Camp builds a fun foundation

    Jamie Smith figured he’d get a leg up on future Chatfield basketball hopefuls by attending Gary Anderson’s Basketball Boot Camp for boys and girls in grades 2-8 on June 29-30 at Chatfield Senior High.

    One of three eighth-graders and the only one destined to attend Chatfield, Smith saw the camp as another way to become indoctrinated to the way things are done in the Charger boys’ program, for which Anderson is Steve Schimpeler’s top assistant coach.

  • Lions working on continuity...

    Legion B baseball is all about building for the next high school season. It’s also all about mixing and matching.

    Littleton High School’s American Legion Post 103 team is no different, and if results through the first week of July are indicative, coach Micah Bernhardt’s team is successful on both counts.
