    ARVADA — For the past four years, Dakota Ridge sports fans must have thought Jae Ferrin and Lauren Wood were conjoined twins. Standing 6-foot and 5-11, respectively, they played together on the volleyball team in the fall and, with the exception of the 2012-13 season, the girls basketball team during the winter.
    “We play everything together, and that’s how it’s been since, like, elementary school,” Wood said.

    McDondle, Seeley named to South team for CHSCA game

    Columbine’s Bernard McDondle and Dakota Ridge’s Brant Seeley have been selected to play for the South squad in the 2014 Colorado High School Coaches Association All-State football game this June at Adams State University.
    McDondle rushed for 1,754 yards and 25 touchdowns in leading Columbine to a 10-2 record and a 5A Super Six Conference title. The Rebels reached the quarterfinals of the 5A state tournament.

  • Chargers relish chance to play...

    DENVER — It was approximately 1:45 p.m. when the Chatfield Chargers’ team bus pulls up to Coors Field for a 3 p.m. game with Horizon. The butterflies started to set in, but Jacob Falbo said that he and his teammates were ready.

    “We were hungry for a win, and we got one,” Falbo said after Chatfield sent 11 batters to the plate in a six-run first inning of a 12-2 defeat of the Horizon Hawks on March 21.

  • Walker, Chargers make a...

    GREENWOOD VILLAGE — The nerves were there. After all, the Chatfield Lady Chargers were playing Cherry Creek, the defending girls lacrosse state champ and a perennial powerhouse. But once Chatfield got the momentum — and it did so early on by scoring the game’s first five goals — the realization set in that they not only could compete with the Lady Bruins, they might just be able to beat them.

    That’s exactly what the Lady Chargers did March 21 at the Stutler Bowl.

    LAKEWOOD — Location makes Columbine and Dakota Ridge natural rivals in any sport. Now there’s a sibling rivalry adding spice to the recipe in boys lacrosse.

    A year ago, brothers Jake and Riley Miller were freshman teammates on Dakota Ridge’s first varsity team. But Jake transferred to Columbine for the 2013-14 school year, and the two went head-to-head for the first time on March 21.

    LAKEWOOD — Brittany Wilson usually takes Chatfield’s free kicks, but this one was a little farther up the field than normal for the Lady Chargers’ sophomore goalkeeper. With her team in need of a spark against a ball-controlling Columbine squad, the opportunity presented itself for Chatfield to strike, and the Lady Chargers made the most of it.

    DENVER — When they squared off early last season, Columbine was the veteran boys lacrosse team and Colorado Academy was young and with a new coach. When they met in a 2014 rematch of preseason top-10 teams at Colorado Academy on March 15 it was just the opposite, but no new coach for the Rebels.

    The news could have been worse for Dakota Ridge. The Eagles surrendered four unearned runs in the first inning of a 6-4 loss to visiting Grand Junction on March 14, then saw No. 1 pitcher Bryce Evans leave the season’s second game in the second with soreness in his throwing elbow.
