    Lucas Jordan may have been a little bit dehydrated. He certainly was tired and his legs were aching, thus necessitating one of his D’Evelyn teammates to hold him upright.

    “I’m pretty dizzy, but I’m all right,” the Jaguars junior said.

    ENGLEWOOD — Marcus Tait realizes that with each round that he plays, it’s him against the course. That, however, is easier said than done when you’re constantly squaring off against one of the state’s best in Lakewood senior Griffin Barela.

    Christian Holmes’ approach to his tennis match against Dakota Ridge’s Austin Vancil on Sept. 7 was a simple one.

    With the entire roster returning from the No. 1 seed in last year’s 5A state volleyball tournament, you wouldn’t think Chatfield coach Stephanie Schick would fret about her team suffering a case of nerves in its 2016 opener. Especially at home, where the Lady Chargers were unbeaten in ’15.

    If there’s a number that will drive coaches batty, especially after a defeat, it’s runners left on base. Dakota Ridge had its fair share of them in its 9-1 home-opening softball loss to 5A fifth-ranked Eaglecrest on Aug. 31.

    For the record, the Lady Eagles stranded 10 runners, including at least one in each of the first six innings. Dakota Ridge left two runners on in the first and fourth innings and three in the fifth before the visiting Lady Raptors exploded for five runs in the sixth inning at Dave Atencio Field.
