    LAKEWOOD — It might not have surpassed the special memories on the football field at Jeffco Stadium, but Dakota Ridge senior Cale Ferrin found the right way to end his prep sports career.

    Ferrin, who placed third in the high jump at the 5A Jeffco League Championships the previous week, finished fourth at the state meet May 19.

    Mitchell finishes tied for 63rd

    Columbine sophomore Tess Mitchell placed tied for 63rd at the Class 5A girls golf state tournament that wrapped up May 24 at CommonGround Golf Course in Aurora. Mitchell shot round of 88 and 98 to finish 42-over-par for the two-day tournament.

  • That’s a wrap for Reed

    LAKEWOOD — Seniors Lexi Reed and Katie Rainsberger embraced after both finished up their impressive prep careers May 21 at Jeffco Stadium.

     “She (Rainsberger) just said good job and I said good job getting the record,” Reed said of the conversation when the two hugged after Rainsberger set a new state meet record winning the Class 4A girls 1,600-meter state title with a time of 4:45.27. 

  • Quest for a second state title...

    PARKER — It was one of those days where anything that could go wrong went wrong for Columbine’s girls soccer team.

    Mountain Vista junior Katie Joella scored back-to-back goals in two minutes in the first half. The Golden Eagles added a third first-half goal on a shot by sophomore Maisie Paulson in the 33rd minute to give Mountain Vista a commanding 3-0 lead in the Class 5A state semifinal game May 21 at Echo Park Automotive Stadium in Parker.

  • Hume finishes on the state...

    LAKEWOOD — It was admittedly an emotional state track and field meet for Dakota Ridge senior Cayli Hume.

    First there was the dilemma of whether Hume would run the anchor leg in the first event on the track May 19 at Jeffco Stadium. The Eagles’ 800-meter medley relay broke the school record twice in the two weeks leading up to the three-day state meet and came in with the seventh best qualifying time.

    THORNTON — The transition has come full circle for Jack Moranetz. 

    The D’Evelyn sophomore swimmer is a bona fide breaststroker. Oh, he’ll still swim freestyle races and maybe even the individual medley, especially if he gets his butterfly up to par.
