  • Chatfield edges Ralston Valley...

    ARVADA — Many assume swimmers don’t sweat when they race. Then again, many people don’t understand the pressure that comes with having just one meet left with which to qualify for state competition.

    Through sweat and sacrifice, the Chatfield Lady Chargers took first place at the 5A Jeffco League finals at Meyers Pool on Feb. 3-4 with 408.5 points, edging out rival Ralston Valley.

    WESTMINSTER — Missed opportunities early proved costly for the Chatfield Chargers.

    ARVADA — Abbey Selin has traveled a rocky road to the first-ever 3A state swimming and diving championships.

  • Chargers turn up the heat on...

    It was just one shot — a Joe Miks 3-pointer from the corner to close the first half — but it was symbolic of how the first half was for Chatfield and Columbine and, more or less, where it was headed after the intermission on Jan. 25 at Columbine High School.

    Miks made five 3-pointers in the game for the Chargers, who had nine as a team, and that buzzer-beating 3 before halftime was the catalyst for second-half dominance for third-ranked Chatfield in a 70-43 lopsided win over the rival Rebels.

  • Alward, Rebels fend off Chargers

    They sayit’s now how you start but how you finish that matters. In the case of the Columbine Lady Rebels, the opposite would most definitely be true in defining their Jan. 25 rivalry game with Chatfield.

    A strong start — a 15-1 run to end the first quarter and a 17-point lead in the third quarter — proved to be enough as host Columbine held off a furious late charge from Chatfield for a 38-33 win.

    EVERGREEN ­— Sometimes emotions can be a motivator for a team. 

    For Rhys Pennington-Sayler and the Evergreen Cougars, the raw passion the senior guard displayed after his rebound putback midway through the third quarter was the motivator the Cougars needed against visiting D’Evelyn on Jan. 27.

    Clay Thielking insists he doesn’t “get caught up in standings and things of that nature,” but the Columbine boys basketball coach wasn’t about to underscore the importance of his team’s next-to-last game in the first go-round of 5A Jeffco League play. 

  • Eagles unleash offensive flurry

    Though Dakota Ridge had its most dominant performance in a month — a 10-0 thrashing of Denver East on Jan. 21 at The Edge Ice Arena — players and coaches felt there was still room for improvement after the lopsided victory.

    But still it was a lopsided victory.

    Jacob Gombos had two goals and two assists, and nine players in all scored goals for the Eagles, who dominated in every facet of the game.
