  • Chargers perfect in Jeffco, again

    On the one hand, as Chatfield senior Titus Reed put it, the Chargers’ 74-39 victory over Columbine on Friday night was a “good milestone,” and it was. 

    Chatfield not only completed its second straight 5A Jeffco League championship, but it also won its 30th straight conference game. The team celebrated by cutting down one of the nets at Chatfield Senior High afterwards.

  • Manzanares, Mullin were hoping...

    DENVER — Earl C. Manzanares had the experience of being at the 5A state wrestling championships in 2016, but for Ted Mullin, this was his first trip to the Pepsi Center. As it would turn out, both Manzanares’ experience and Mullin’s inexperience at state showed at the 2017 event, but both were hoping for more.

  • Eagles’ defense swats GJ

    Steal, steal and steal again. Dakota Ridge’s defense wreaked havoc on visiting Grand Junction on Tuesday night in the opening round of the 5A state girls’ basketball tournament.

    Behind 13 points from freshman Emily Doolittle and 12 from sophomore Sydney Daniels, Dakota Ridge led from start to finish in rolling to a 54-38 victory over the Lady Tigers at Dakota Ridge High School. But it was the team’s defense, specifically a full-court pressing trap, that befuddled Grand Junction for much of the night.

  • Barrows, Lady Rebels escape with...

    Ellie Barrows made the most of her opportunity, and the Columbine Lady Rebels benefited from it.

    Playing without stalwarts Annabelle Young and Skylar Alward, Columbine had to look for others to step up and lead the way. Barrows only scored seven points Friday night at Chatfield Senior High, but her final two — on a layup with 51 seconds remaining — was enough for Columbine to sweep the season series with a nail-biting 55-52 win over a valiant Chatfield squad.

    THORNTON — Peyton Wayment’s junior season in 2016 wasn’t a disappointment — fifth place in the 500-yard freestyle in the 5A state meet is nothing to hang your head over. But the Chatfield distance swimmer knew she could do better in 2017.

    Determined to end her high school career with a bigger splash, Wayment vowed to leave no stone unturned.

  • Jaguars’ Selin wins freestyle...

    THORNTON — Abbey Selin, by her own admission, was pretty out of shape, and the D’Evelyn junior didn’t know what to expect coming into the 3A state swimming championships on Friday at the Veterans Memorial Aquatic Center.

    “It’s been a rough year,” Selin said.

    Drama has rarely unfolded during Chatfield’s run to within one victory of a second straight unbeaten season in 5A Jeffco League boys basketball, and it was no different on Valentine’s Day after a 97-57 home rout of Dakota Ridge.

  • State wrestling qualifiers

    The following is a list of area grapplers from Chatfield and Columbine high schools who’ve qualified for the 2017 state wrestling championships. Both will compete in the 5A competition, which begins Thursday at 7:15 p.m. with the preliminary rounds at the Pepsi Center.

  • Chargers pull away from Tigers, ...

    There were any number of reasons for the Chatfield Chargers to have a letdown Feb. 1 against Lakewood. After all, the Chargers entered the 5A Jeffco League contest having won 24 straight conference tilts. They hadn’t lost in the league in nearly two years. Shoot, Lakewood hadn’t beaten Chatfield in the previous 14 encounters.
