    DENVER — Columbine’s girls lacrosse team is still in the fight.

    After a 6-5 upset against Denver East in the second round of the state tournament, the Rebels, who were defeated by the Angels 20-9 earlier this season, will head to the quarterfinals for the first time since 2010, according to Columbine coach Sonorah Hunter.

    ARVADA — It’s not like Gavin Olson burst onto the high school swimming scene without notice.

    Columbine’s boys swim coach Kristy Marosy had first-hand knowledge of his potential long before he turned up for his freshman season in 2016.

  • Eagles get their shot against...

    DENVER — To be the best you must beat the best.

    Defending state champion and top-seed Colorado Academy is the team to beat in girls lacrosse, and Dakota Ridge got its shot at the Mustangs in the second round of the state tournament May 13.

  • Rebels score in bunches to make...

    LAKEWOOD — Columbine soccer goals are kind of like the sun in Colorado — it will show up more often than not.

    The Rebels waited a bit longer than normal, but poured in three goals in the span of five minutes late in the second period of their second-round Class 5A state tournament game against Castle View on May 13 at Lakewood Memorial Field. The trio of goals propelled the No. 2 seed Columbine to a 5-1 victory.

  • Ball doesn’t bounce Rebels’ way

    AURORA — The Class 5A District 8 baseball championship game started out promising for Columbine.

    The Rebels plated a pair of runs with a walk of junior Mikey Griebel, followed by a pair of RBI hits by senior Tommy Gillman and junior Chase Anderson to give the No. 11 seed an early 2-0 lead on host and No. 6 seed Grandview. 

    Unfortunately for Columbine, it would be the only runs the Rebels could muster in what would eventually materialize into a season-ending 5-2 loss on the Wolves’ home field.

    HIGHLANDS RANCH — It was a classic tale of two seasons for Chatfield’s baseball program — or more aptly described, the halves of two seasons.

    The 2015 Chargers finished in a blaze of glory, winning 12 of 13 games before back-to-back losses to Rock Canyon in the finals of the Class 5A state tournament as Chatfield claimed the state runner-up trophy.

    LAKEWOOD — It wasn’t a long drought, but returning to the Class 4A girls soccer playoffs was worth the wait for D’Evelyn, particularly the seniors.

    A 4-1 first-round victory over Niwot on May 11 at Lakewood Memorial Field made it that much more memorable and rewarding.

    LAKEWOOD — Dakota Ridge’s girls 800-meter sprint medley relay team began the final day of the two-day Jeffco Elite Meet with a bang May 5 at Jeffco Stadium.

    The all-senior relay team of Genevieve Cruz, Carina Wilkerson, Olivia Landers and Cayli Hume broke the school record when it won the first event on the track Thursday afternoon. The time of 1 minute, 49.29 seconds easily outdistanced the Eagles from Lakewood and D’Evelyn at the finish line.

  • Chargers net regional title

    LITTLETON — Chatfield senior Jenna Alvarez has handled her demotion better than most.

    “Honestly, playing No. 2 doubles is frustrating after playing No. 1 doubles last year,” Alvarez said during the Class 5A Region 8 girls tennis tournament May 5 at Ken Caryl Ranch House. “The girls at No. 1 doubles right now have been together so long it didn’t make sense to split them up. I love my partner and we are doing so well.”
