  • Rebels align for another state...

    LITTLETON — Brittany Wilson is back on the high school soccer field.

    As one of the top young goalkeepers — not only in the state of Colorado, but nationally — she will compete at the high school level this spring. After two seasons playing for Chatfield, Wilson trained with her Real Colorado club boys team last spring instead of playing for the Chargers.

  • Just the beginning

    BOULDER — A spontaneous final team meeting for Chatfield’s 2015-16 boys basketball team was held at center court in a nearly empty Coors Events Center on March 11.

    With midnight approaching, the clock had already run out for the Chargers (24-3 record) after a 72-50 Class 5A state semifinal loss to now two-time defending state champion Overland.

  • State champs end Chargers’...

    BOULDER — It took the defending state champions, along with one of the top recruits in the nation, to end Chatfield’s boys basketball season.

    Overland ended the Chargers’ 15-game winning streak with a 72-50 victory in the Class 5A state semifinals March 11 at the Coors Events Center in Boulder. The Trailblazers’ 6-foot-10, 240-pound senior De’Ron Davis, who will play for Indiana University next season, powered Overland on both ends of the court against Chatfield.

  • Defending champs too much for...

    BOULDER — It wasn’t the ending Chatfield’s boys basketball team envisioned when it stepped onto the court at the Coors Events Center in Boulder last Friday night.

    The Chargers had aspirations of upsetting the defending Class 5A state champion Overland Trailblazers in the semifinals March 11, in turn, getting a shot to win Chatfield’s first boys hoops state title since 1992 the next day in the title game.

  • D’Evelyn bows out to rival

    EVERGREEN — It felt like an end of an era as D’Evelyn’s girls basketball players filed out of their locker room March 4 at Evergreen High School.

    The Jaguars suffered a season-ending 49-26 loss to Jeffco rival Evergreen in the 4A Great 8 state tournament game. Not only did the loss close the season for D’Evelyn (16-10 record), but also it saw the likes of Lexi Reed and Aubrey Sotolongo walking off the basketball court together for the last time.

  • Dakota Ridge takes pride in...

    AURORA — It’s 2 minutes and 10 seconds Dakota Ridge’s basketball team would like back.

    The Eagles led 14-12 on No. 2 seed Regis with about five minutes to play in the second quarter March 2 at Regis Jesuit High School in Aurora. The Raiders (22-4 record) suddenly went on a 11-0 run over 130 seconds to snag a 23-14 lead thanks to some Dakota Ridge (17-8) turnovers that led to some transition buckets for Regis.

  • Eight Eagle seniors battled...

    HIGHLANDS RANCH — Diane Thompson admits she wasn’t sure how her first year as Dakota Ridge’s girls basketball coach would go.

     “I didn’t know what I had. After that first week I thought, maybe we are OK,” Thompson said March 1 after the Eagles’ season ended at Highlands Ranch High School with a 70-41 loss. “It was kind of a rollercoaster season. I’ve got to give it to the kids. We aren’t very big. We are very crafty.”

  • Chatfield puts Jeffco back on 5A...

    DENVER — It’s been awhile since Jeffco produced a contender for the Class 5A boys basketball state title.

    For more than a decade, no Jeffco team had even made it to the Final Four in the biggest classification of the boys hoops state tournament. Chatfield ended that drought March 5 with its 63-55 overtime victory against Cherry Creek in the Great 8.

  • Charging into the Final Four

    DENVER — The effort of the many outweighed the effort of the one March 5 at the Denver Coliseum.

    Chatfield’s boys basketball team used its depth and balance to outlast and overcome the remarkable individual performance of Cherry Creek senior Will Halfon. The Chargers reeled in a 63-55 overtime victory despite 38 points from Halfon.

  • Chatfield hoops advances to...

    DENVER — It took Chatfield to work a little overtime, but for the first time since 1996 the Chargers advanced to the Final Four of the Class 5A boys basketball state tournament.

    The 5A Jeffco League champions defeated Cherry Creek 63-55 in overtime March 5 at the Denver Coliseum. In the Chatfield’s first trip to the Great 8 since 2001, the No. 2 seed Chargers outscored No. 4-seeded Bruins 13-5 in overtime to take the eight-point victory.
