    LAKEWOOD — It was the Ben Frenette Show on Thursday night at Jeffco Stadium.

It was the first home game of the season for Chatfield (2-1 record), who was ranked No. 5 in the CHSAANow.com Class 4A football poll coming into the non-league game.

    The 4-2 Chatfield Chargers faced off against the ThunderRidge Grizzlies Monday night in a deceptively close match that saw the Chargers pull out the victory in the three-set sweep.

    With the student section donning its best ‘80s attire for spirit week, the Chargers roared onto the court and snagged the first set 25-19.

  • Jaguar, Falcon boys perform well...

     

    DENVER — At Denver North High School’s Viking Invitational at Willis Case Golf Course on Tuesday, 25 cross country teams came to town to showcase their skills amid heated competition — both literally and figuratively.

    As the sun beat down mercilessly on the golf course, D’Evelyn and Front Range Christian high schools both brought their best, or at least the best they could with the hilly, tough course in the upper-80-degree weather.

  • Columbine tennis, Andrews easily...

    LITTLETON — The road hasn’t always been easy for Columbine High School standout Luke Andrews, but where he lacked in experience, pure athleticism always kicked in. Now that’s he’s a junior and has three years of tennis under his belt, his game is being fueled by both.

    LAKEWOOD — D’Evelyn senior receiver/defensive back Cullen Flynn was a prime example of how to respond to adversity on Friday at Jeffco Stadium.

    Green Mountain’s large homecoming football crowd got fired up early, when junior Ryan Burdi intercepted a pass from D’Evelyn quarterback Chad Dines that was intended for Flynn on the third play from scrimmage. The ball hit Flynn directly in the face mask on an out-pattern. Burdi snagged it and returned the pick to the Jaguars’ 3-yard line.

    LITTLETON — All season long, the Chatfield Senior High School Chargers have seen their ups and downs in softball, but after earning their third straight win, 10-0, on Tuesday against the visiting Evergreen High School Cougars, they’re feeling good heading into league play and beyond.

  • D’Evelyn and Columbine girls...

    By Alissa Noe

    LITTLETON — In a cross country meet of grand proportions that saw nearly 100 teams from around Colorado and Wyoming, two local high school teams held their own amid stiff competition at the Liberty Bell Invitational 5K at Heritage High School on Friday.

    For D’Evelyn High School, the girls dominated much of the competition in their field as they notched a second-place finish (69 score) in Division III, whereas the boys struggled a bit with a score of 238 at 11th place.

  • Falcon volleyball earns first...

    By Alissa Noe

    LAFAYETTE — Although the Dawson Volleyball Invitational on Saturday didn’t quite turn out the way the Front Range Christian High School team hoped, finishing fifth out of six attending teams, the Falcons did manage to walk away with their first win of the season.

  • Columbine softball wins in come-...

     

    It may be early in the season, but Columbine softball is already showing tremendous fight and grit after two come-from-behind victories, including a 7-6 win at home over Douglas County on Aug. 30.

    “I’m extremely proud of these girls. This is the second time we’ve done this. Our first game against ThunderRidge, we were down 8-0. I can’t say enough about their character,” head coach Jim Santaniello said. “We were down 8-0 and we won 10-9, so it just shows the no-quit attitude that these girls have.”
