    Peters leads Dakota Ridge to 5A Jeffco League championship
    LAKEWOOD
    — Kristyn Peters went 3-for-3 with two homers and five RBIs as Dakota Ridge capped its regular season with a 16-0 shutout of host Lakewood on Oct. 4.
    The win was the Lady Eagles’ sixth straight and earned Dakota Ridge the 5A Jeffco League title with a 7-1 league mark. Dakota Ridge (17-2) shared the title with Arvada West, but won out due to its head-to-head victory over the Lady Wildcats.

  • Energized Lady Chargers keep...

    Eight times Chatfield had set point  and eight times the Lady Chargers couldn’t convert. Yet, even though Chatfield was denied in the second set of its 5A Jeffco League home match with Dakota Ridge the outcome seemingly motivated the Lady Chargers.

  • Rebels cash in on Chargers’...

    LAKEWOOD — Andy Lowry walked off the field Oct. 4 at Jeffco Stadium unaware until moments earlier when he learned that Columbine’s 38-15 victory over Chatfield was his 200th victory. But in all fairness to the modest Lowry, he’s never been one to concern himself with such facts

  • Tait-led Rebels place eighth at...

    GOLDEN – Columbine's Michael Tait was the top local finisher at the 5A boys golf state championships Oct. 1-2, tying for 20th with a 15-over-par 157 after back-to-back rounds of 79 and 78 at Rolling Hills Country Club.
    Douglas County's Kyler Dunkle, who carded a 1-under 70 on Day 2, won the state championship by one stroke over Legacy’s Eric Chen and Regis Jesuit's Spencer Painton.

  • Sloan finishes in middle of pack...

    DENVER – Front Range Christian's Jared Sloan carded a 15-over-par 85 on both days of the 3A boys golf state championships at Pinehurst Country Club to finish in a four-way tie for 41st.
    Sloan finished tied with Trinidad's Dante Duran, Gunnison's Kiowa Sanders and Alexander Dawson's Christian Wagner, 30 shots back of Kent Denver's Ben Moore. Moore won the 3A state title after shooting an even-par 140 total, carding a 70 each day.

    FOOTBALL
    Winkler leads Chatfield to upset of Lakewood in league opener
    LAKEWOOD
    — Backup quarterback Kyle Winkler completed 11-of-16 passes for 170 yards and three touchdowns as Chatfield upset 5A state finalist Lakewood, 29-6, on Sept. 28 at Jeffco Stadium.
    Winkler threw touchdown passes of 36 yards to Larry Huff, 28 yards to Race Fenimore and 3 yards to Jake Thayer as the Chargers (4-1 overall, 1-0 5A Super 6) won their fourth straight game.

  • Prepared Hume leads Eagles...

    Even though, the Dakota Ridge cross country team has been competing Carson Hume called the Dave Sanders Invitational on Sept. 28 at Clement Park the first race he and his teammates have prepared for.
    “The last two weeks we’ve been totally training hardcore,” Hume said. “So I’m pretty happy with today.”
    He has good reason to be. Hume came in seventh in the boys’ Division I race in 16 minutes, 30 seconds. Only Arvada West’s Connor Lockwood, who came in third in 16:12, was faster than Hume among 5A Jeffco League runners.

  • League champs prep for regionals

    By Will Petersen
    For the Courier
    The ball was probably in the air for three seconds, but it felt more like a minute. As it fell out of the sky Columbine’s Andy Wright waited for it, undoubtedly ready to hit a smashing overhead winner.
    Then, as the ball met his racket, it was clear his massive windup was a decoy the entire time. Wright faked everyone out, including his opponent, Dakota Ridge’s Micah Schulman, and perfectly decelerated his racket to hit a gorgeous shot with precision and touch just over the net for an easy winner.

  • McDondle, big plays help...

    LAKEWOOD — Big plays are somewhat commonplace for Columbine. Be it Bernard McDondle’s 56-yard TD run in the first half or his 55- or 75-yarders in the second, or Michael Burns’ own 75-yard scamper, they were all part of the Rebels’ ever-present rushing attack Sept. 28 at Jeffco Stadium.
    But if anything, Columbine’s 48-36 homecoming victory over Arapahoe was almost as much about what the Rebels did as it was what Arapahoe didn’t, at least in the first half.
