  • The Year in Review

    From Chatfield football moving down to 4A and reaching the state semifinals to the Lady Chargers’ volleyball team making another memorable run at the 5A state tourney and D’Evelyn runner Lexi Reed completing her prep career, South Jeffco had its fair share of sports moments in 2016. The following are 10 stories that highlighted the Columbine Courier sports scene during 2016.

  • Eagles find a way to win

    DENVER — Anyone who looks at Dakota Ridge’s hockey roster will notice that Trey Konsella is a defenseman. But, truthfully, he’s an offensive defenseman. His three goals already this season proves as much. None of those goals was bigger than the one he scored against Denver East on Dec. 23 at DU’s Joy Burns Arena.

  • Grinch-like Gators stuff Rebels...

    WESTMINSTER — Bah humbug.

    It probably felt like the Grinch stealing Christmas or a lump of coal was left in their stocking. What’s for certain is that the Columbine Rebels didn’t expect a 5-4 loss to lowly Standley Lake on Dec. 20 at the Ice Centre at the Promenade.

    HIGHLANDS RANCH — For the first five games of the 2016-17 girls basketball season, Columbine’s opponents faced a tall order, trying to stop Maura Singer, the Lady Rebels’ 6-foot-3 sophomore center.

    Curi Yutzy knew the 2016-17 boys basketball season would be one of growing pains for his almost completely-rebuilt Dakota Ridge squad with just one senior. But judging from the Eagles’ 69-58 loss to second-ranked Rock Canyon on Dec. 16, Dakota Ridge seems to be finding its legs.

  • Chatfield charges to home victory

    Play defense, rebound, run and score — and repeat. 

    That was definitely the philosophy for Chatfield’s boys basketball team Dec. 13 facing an athletic and dangerous Far Northeast squad. Chatfield (5-1) used its defensive pressure and focus to control the boards on both ends of the court to run away with a 72-47 home victory.

  • Dinegar, Jaguars pull away from ...

    DENVER — Just 3 minutes into the game and Charles Dinegar was already having himself a game. The D’Evelyn junior had scored the team’s first nine points and was creating a defensive mismatch for the Conifer Lobos on Dec. 16. That’s when Conifer employed a 1-3-1 zone intended to slow Dinegar down.

  • Shorthanded Lady Chargers hang...

    DENVER — The Chatfield girls basketball team’s December to remember began as a month to forget. Already beginning the season without sophomore Emma Talbot, the top returning 3-point shooter, the Lady Chargers lost their leader, senior Grace Koza, to a torn ACL in the first quarter of the opening game.

  • Miks, Chargers methodical in...

    BOULDER — It was just another day at the office for Joe Miks. OK, maybe not. But the Chatfield senior certainly had a field day on the scoreboard Dec. 8 at Boulder High School.

    That’s because he scored a game-high 28 points — the second-most in his varsity career — in leading Chatfield to a 70-58 win over the host Panthers. But how many points he scored was of little consequence to Miks as long as Chatfield won for the third time in four games this season.
