  • Eagles’ Hume finds motivation

    COLORADO SPRINGS — A course as challenging as the Norris-Penrose Event Center can be trepidatious, especially for someone such as Dakota Ridge’s Cayli Hume, who has battled shin splints the past few years. But the third-time 5A state cross country qualifier found some motivation to combat the grueling course.

    Her team.

    “This course is so tough. The only thing that gets you through it is running for your team. That’s all that got me through today,” Hume said.

  • Ali Abid's goal sends...

    Hamadi Ali Abid, as he has done all season long, put the Littleton Lions on the scoreboard and his first-half goal held up Oct. 28 at Littleton Public Schools Stadium.

    The junior forward found the front left post of the Durango net, past goalkeeper Lars Schwaebe, in the 11th minute for the game’s only goal as eighth-seeded Littleton advanced to the quarterfinals of the 4A boys soccer state tournament with a 1-0 victory.

  • McGrath’s hat trick propels...

    AURORA — It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, considering Jamey McGrath scored a Jeffco-leading 19 goals during the regular season, that he was an offensive juggernaut again in Chatfield’s 5A state playoff opener against Rangeview on Oct. 23 at Aurora Public Schools Stadium.

    PARKER — Tre Blake admitted that he could have used a break sometime during Littleton’s gut-check drive early in the fourth quarter against Ponderosa. But with Noah McGhee sidelined by an injury, coach Kurt Krantz didn’t have that luxury.

    LAKEWOOD — Girls will be ... boys?

    Maybe so in rugby, which is one reason why Karlie Harden, who plays for the Littleton-based Westside Swarm Rugby Club’s high school 7s team, loves the sport.

    Joe Director scored two goals and three players also found the back of the net as the Littleton Lions, the No. 8 seed, opened the 4A state boys soccer tournament with a 5-0 shutout of Mesa Ridge on Oct. 22 at Littleton Public Schools Stadium.

    Hamadi Ali Abid, Cole Greer and Oscar Sanchez also scored for the Lions (13-3), who have won four straight. Littleton broke the game open with four second-half goals.

  • Third rally not in the cards for...

    AURORA — For whatever reason, the Dakota Ridge Lady Eagles didn’t make it easy on themselves in 2014. Four times in recent weeks, dating back to a Sept. 6 non-conference encounter with Erie and as recently as the opening round of the Oct. 11 regionals with Rampart, Dakota Ridge has had to battle back time and again.

  • Lady Rebels found their rhythm...

    AURORA — Columbine senior Shelby Copley considered it perfect timing. The fact that the Lady Rebels came together when it mattered most — at the end of the season — is why they made their first appearance in the 5A state softball tournament since 2008. That’s where Columbine was Oct. 17 at Aurora Sports Park.

    LAKEWOOD — Chatfield and Columbine don’t need added incentives when they square off in any sport, but both football teams were playing for their playoff lives on Oct. 17 at Jeffco Stadium.

  • Lady Chargers befuddle host...

    Home is where the heart is. At least that’s how the saying goes, but on Oct. 15 the Columbine girls’ volleyball team received broken hearts when they lost at home to the Chatfield Lady Chargers in straight sets 25-12, 25-21, 25-11.

    “This is the first game that I was kind of nervous for, but playing Columbine in all of our sports this week made (our victory) that much more exciting,” said Chatfield senior captain Amelia Metzler.
